Nokia Sponsors Camera Phone Photo Contest

October 6, 2005 - It’s a photo competition unlike any other—and to enter, you can’t use a camera. On Tuesday, cell phone company Nokia announced “See New”, the first international photo competition in which all entries must be shot with a camera phone.

Five professional photographers from America, India, China, and the U.K. will serve as the judging panel, and five winners will be selected from different geographic regions. There are no categories, but each entry must be shot with a megapixel camera phone, and each entrant must be 18 years of age or older. The deadline is December 16, 2005.

Pekka Rantala, Senior Vice President of Multimedia Marketing at Nokia, said, “After pioneering the concept of mobile photography, we're now pioneering an exciting new photography challenge. The See New Competition is designed to encourage people to explore the possibilities of camera phone photography and uncover new photography talent from around the world. It's a unique competition both in terms of the caliber of professional photographers involved and by its global scale.”
