or photojournalists, and will enrich the resumes and portfolios of the participating
students.



Starting January 14, 2008, students will submit their best work captured with
the Olympus E-3 digital SLR (single lens reflex) camera in three categories:
Speed, Travel and Environmental Issues. Student entries will be judged by a
panel of award-winning photographers, comprised of Olympus Visionaries. The

Institute of Technology, Hallmark Institute of Photography, University of Texas
- Austin, Rockport College, and Academy of Art University San Francisco, among
others.



"The Olympus competition is our way of helping the next generation of
professional photographers and photojournalists to showcase their work nationally,
as the winning submissions will be visible on the Olympus Web site," said
John Knaur, senior marketing manager, Digital SLR at Olympus Imaging America
Inc. "The students will connect with the three distinct categories of
speed, travel and environmental issues."



Photo Submission Categories

Olympus has selected the following categories for contest submissions to inspire
the budding photographers and to best represent the capabilities of the new
Olympus E-3 digital SLR camera.



Speed: Images capturing the essence of speed and movement of
life;

Travel: Images depicting exotic, exciting, or extreme journeys
or adventures, showing the color and temperament of the local culture; and

Environment Issues: Images showing the impact of man and global
warming, or natural settings of landscapes, flora, and fauna.



The Prizes

The students who submit the three winning images (one for each of the three
categories) will be awarded the following prizes. The three students'
respective professors will also be awarded the camera, lenses and accessories.

· $5,000 Scholarship

· Olympus E-3 Digital SLR Camera

· Two New ZUIKO Digital Lenses -- the ED 12-60mm (24-120mm equivalent)
f2.8-4.0 SWD and ED 50-200mm (100-400mm equivalent) f2.8-3.5 SWD

· Olympus Travel Bag and Lens Cloth



Contest Camera and Lenses

The Olympus E-3 provides the high-precision performance demanded by professional
and enthusiastic photographers to capture exceptional images every time. When
coupled with the ZUIKO digital 12-60mm SWD (Supersonic Wave Drive) lens, the
E-3 offers the fastest autofocus system in the world.[1] Body-Integrated Mechanical
Image Stabilization to stabilize every lens, a 10-megapixel Live MOS image sensor,
and the reliability of a high-endurance, dust-proof and splash-resistant magnesium
alloy body join the impressive innovations developed for the E-3. Olympus pioneered
Full-Time Live View and Dust Reduction Technologies for digital SLR cameras,
leading where others have followed.



The Judges


An esteemed panel of judges, comprised of Olympus Visionaries, will evaluate
the student submissions and vote for the top winner in each category. The Olympus
Visionary program celebrates the work of some of the most talented still photographers
of the day, who use E-System equipment for travel, news, documentary, fashion,
food, people, nature and landscape, commercial and fine art photography.

For photographers, having to check their gear before boarding an airline exposes
them to one of their greatest fears: the theft of their equipment and possibly
their livelihood. Think Tank Photo's newest additions to their air travel

utmost importance to photographers. When combined with Think Tank Photo's
breakthrough large backpack, the Airport Addicted, and revolutionary roller,
the Airport Security, these new bags provide photographers with a complete menu

Clik Elite’s padded camera bay protects expensive – and fragile photography equipment – from the hard, harsh outside world. Customizable to fit any photographer’s set-up, the bay features adjustable cushioned dividers to shield and cradle delicate camera bodies and lenses. A zippered inner cover adds yet another level of protection. And the innovative magnetic closure snaps closed like magic, holds like a vise, and releases with the twist of its anodized aluminum knob.

Small accessories – media cards, cables, batteries, bags of M&M’s – stay organized and accessible in the multi-pocketed top flap. A roomy side pocket totes a water bottle or additional lens.

The Magnesian 10 travels easy – the shoulder strap adjusts to fit right, and the strap’s air-cell pad cushions the load. An ingenious sleeve slides onto rolling luggage’s’ handle while cruising through the terminal or train station.

With sharp looking hardware and six color options, the Magnesian 10 – and it’s bigger brothers, the Magnesian 20 and 30 – combine high-performance style with fully-loaded function.
