The 30 Finalists have been chosen
Photo Freedom called on aspiring photographers to capture the essence of “Homegrown Pride” in pictures to stand a chance of winning one of three Canon cameras. The cameras, sponsored by Canon South Africa, include a CANON PowerShot G7X Mark II, a CANON EOS M5 and a CANON EOS 80D.
The Photo Freedom Photography Competition was open to novice and professional photographers alike – in fact anyone with a passion for photography and homegrown treasures could enter. Craig Stevens, owner of Photo Freedom, says: “This was a chance to showcase homegrown pride; be it a landscape, wildlife, people or food that speaks to the heart of being a South African.
There were three competition categories: Cell phone category to stand a chance to win the CANON G7X MKII camera; the Compact digital camera category to win a CANON EOS M5 body with an EFM 15-45MM lens, and the DSLR category, with the CANON EOS 80D body with an EFS 18-135MM IS USM lens being the grand prize.
