Epson Sponsors Nature’s Best Photography Awards

Long Beach, California-based Epson announces that for the third straight year, it is a sponsor of the 2014 “Nature’s Best Photography Windland Smith Rice International Awards Exhibition.”

Epson is again the official inkjet printer and paper partner for the ongoing print exhibition. Starting on Oct. 24, on the second floor of the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., museum goers will be able to enjoy award-winning photographs taken by some of the world’s most prestigious photographers.

“The high caliber of photographic prints we are able to achieve through using Epson printers, inks and papers bring these images to life in a way that truly showcases the spectacle of nature and the creative talent delivered by photographers in the field,” says Steve Freligh, director of the awards.

The Smithsonian exhibition features winners chosen from more than 20,000 entries from photographers in 50 countries. Highlights include the grand prize winner, the photographer of the year and the youth photographer of the year, as well as finalists selected in 13 separate categories. The images, all printed using Epson’s printing technology, are displayed as large format prints ranging in size from 2 feet by 3 feet to nearly 4 feet by 6 feet.
