The Canon Experience
Canon PhotoMarathon is a flagship event that engages shutterbugs from all walks of life and provides consumers with a positive Canon experience. Following the launch of the Canon Try and Buy Lens Programme in March this year, Canon is introducing to the Canon PhotoMarathon Try & Buy lens booth where participants get to rent and test out a wide range of Canon lenses. Furthermore, participants will also have a chance to take a look at rarely seen Canon medical equipment and enterprise products from other Canon business units.
The grand prize winner, termed “Best of Show” in the competition, from each of the two categories – Open and Student – will win a photo clinic to the southern-central region of Japan’s main island, Kansai. Winners will also be selected for the three individual themes of the day and they will each walk away with a Canon EOS camera and PIXMA printer, amongst others.
