ABOUT

Nikon Photo International Contest

Established in 1969, the Nikon Photo Contest International is one of the world's most prestigious international photographic contests. Photography is a universal language. Its timeless power transcends nationality, ethnicity and culture by communicating directly to the emotional core we all share. Without words, photographs speak to us all. That's what makes photography so special and so important. The Nikon Photo Contest International aims to create an occasion for photographers around the world to communicate and exchange their photographic vision, irrespective of professional or amateur status. It is our hope that this event will further enrich and broaden global photographic culture.
