Canon has recently announced that the 2012 Canon SA Expo will be held from Friday 30 November to Sunday 2 December 2012 at the Sandton Convention Centre in Johannesburg, Gauteng.
The expo will be open from 10:00 to 18:00, daily, and entrance will be free.
The 2011 Canon SA Expo attracted in excess of 13,00 visitors over the three-day period, and Canon SA said that it plans to make this year’s show bigger and better.
“The Expo will again showcase Canon’s wide range of consumer and selected business solutions. Visitors to this exclusively Canon expo will also be the first to see and touch some of Canon’s latest technology,” the company said in a press statement.
Visitors will be able to purchase selected Canon products at the expo this year, and the company has indicated that various specials will be up for grabs during the expo period on a select range of Canon consumer imaging products.
Leading up to the expo, aspiring photographers will once again be able to participate in the Canon photo competition.
Participants can enter into one ,or all four themed categories, which are designed to encourage creative interpretation. The themes are:
- Into the Great Wide Open;
- and Magic Colours.
“Besides the unexpectedly high attendance at last year’s expo, we were also truly amazed at the quality of entries submitted for the photographic competition. We will use a similar format to last year, but intend on making the themes even more interesting,” said Michelle Janse van Vuuren, marketing manager at Canon SA.
One winner per category will be selected by a panel of judges, and will be announced on 15 January 2013. Each of the four winners will walk away with an EOS5D Mark III, including an EF40 MM F2.8 STM lens.
Selected entries will be exhibited online on Canon SA’s Expo website, as well as on the Expo’s Facebook site. The top 10 entries in each category will also be exhibited in the gallery at the Canon Expo where visitors will be able to vote for their favourite entries.
