Epson announces The International Pano Awards 2024 Call for Entries

SYDNEY, 9 April 2024 – After a decade and a half of continued success the Epson International Pano Awards are back for a milestone fifteenth successive year. Testament to the awards’ success and in a major boost for the Pano Awards, Epson Australia is this year joined by Epson Southeast Asia as main sponsors of the awards that Epson has helped grow into the world’s largest competition devoted to the craft and art of panoramic photography. With that in mind Epson and The Pano Awards have launched this year’s call for entries.

The Pano Awards’ Curator, David Evans, said, “We are incredibly excited to have Epson Southeast Asia join Epson Australia as a major sponsor of The Pano Awards, reflecting the growth and interest we are seeing from this region. We’re thrilled to strengthen our collaboration with Epson with this partnership, which has been growing strong since our inception in 2009. With the addition of Epson Southeast Asia to Epson Australia as major sponsor, we are also very pleased to announce a record US$50,000 prize pool that includes $15,000 in cash and an array of prizes including three professional Epson photo printers and an Epson projector. So, it gives me great pleasure to officially announce that professional and amateur photographers around the world are now invited to enter the 15th Epson International Pano Awards. Early-bird entries are open until Monday 24 June 2024 with and final entries due in by Monday 15 July 2024.”

2023 was another great year for The Epson International Pano Awards with 4414 entries images submitted from 1,104 photographers in 102 countries. It’s very likely that these numbers will be exceeded again this year, particularly with the significant growing interest in Southeast Asia.

Epson corporate marketing manager (A/NZ) Priscilla Dickason said, “The International Pano Awards represent the pinnacle of creativity and excellence in panoramic photography. They are an inspiration for amateurs and professionals alike and Epson Australia is and continues to be a very proud partner and sponsor of these wonderful awards.”
