NIKON'S VOYAGE OF DISCOVERY IN EDINBURGH
Nikon looks for young talent with Discovery
Awards Competition 2008

Nikon UK is calling for up and coming photographers
at the Edinburgh College of Art and Napier University to enter the Discovery
Awards 2008, in association with British Journal of Photography, for the
chance to win a share of £50,000 worth of prizes.

After a successful first year and an outstanding
array of entries, the competition is back to support and celebrate the
work of students across the UK and Ireland by providing them with a platform
to showcase their work on a national scale.

Selected colleges and universities offering
photographic courses have been invited to join the Nikon Academy, making
them eligible to enter the competition and stand a chance of winning a
share of the significant prize fund. Academy colleges benefit from a range
of exclusive added benefits delivered by a dedicated Nikon Pro Support
member, including specialised Nikon training, seminars and Nikon discount
vouchers.

Entries for the competition must be submitted by 31st October 2008,
when a panel of independent judges will select a shortlist of entries.
Judges to be announced later in the year.

Chris Hoare, Professional Business Manager at Nikon UK says: "Nikon is
still very keen to support the student end of the market, which is echoed
in our work with the Academy colleges on projects such as the Discovery
Awards."

Simon Bainbridge, Editor of BJP adds: ""We
were delighted with the high standard of work we saw last year and the
positive response to the competition. Now, with extra colleges added to
the Nikon Academy of colleges, we look forward to establishing the Discovery
Awards as the premier contest for student photographers."
