Photo News 25th Anniversary

A Year of Celebrations!


This issue marks the 25th Anniversary of PHOTO News – a milestone that we are very proud to share with more than 100,000 readers across Canada. Over the years, we have grown from a quarterly newsletter into the largest circulated photo enthusiast magazine ever published in Canada – and we create each issue of PHOTO News just for you.

Our creative team, Editor Norm Rosen, Art Director Jean-Denis Boillat, Photo Editor André Dal Pont, the contributing writers and photographers, and I share a single goal – to bring the finest in Canadian photography to readers from sea to sea, with print and digital editions in English and French – all available FREE of charge through the generous support of our participating advertisers.

Our internet and social media team bridges the months between magazine issues by filling the pages of the website at www.photonews.ca and our newsletter PHOTO News FLASH with entertaining and informative content. Our web TV channel PHOTO News TV brings a growing library of how-to videos to audiences throughout Canada and the world.

Every issue of PHOTO News provides a stage for the presentation of images from our readers, selected from the image pool at our PHOTO News Canada flickr® group – why not check it out at www.flickr.com/groups/photonewsgallery/ and share your thoughts and photos with our growing number of participating photo enthusiasts.

The World through Your Lens… A Photo Challenge

For our 25th Anniversary celebration we have created a very special photo challenge “The World through My Lens” – a travel-themed photo contest open to all Canadian photographers. This very special project will run in conjunction with our “Image Hong Kong” photo expedition in April, chronicling the adventures of our team of PHOTO News photographers as they explore the sights and scenes of Hong Kong to deliver spectacular images for a special section to appear in our Autumn 2016 issue.

The World through My Lens” is the most spectacular photo contest we have ever created, with a grand prize including a trip for two to Hong Kong and a range of additional prizes from our contest sponsors: the Hong Kong Tourism Board, Cathay Pacific, The Langham Hotel in Hong Kong, Nikon Canada, Vanguard, Hahnemühle, and Zenfolio. For more information please visit: http://hongkong2016.photonews.ca

Throughout the year, our reader participation challenges focus on themes that are designed to inspire your creativity and expand your photographic skills. Check out the Final Frame on page 66, take “A Shot in the Dark”, post it in our challenge thread at the flickr® group, and you may be the winner of a Panasonic four-thirds camera!

It’s all part of our goal to share the passion for photography with Canadian photo enthusiasts – so sit back, enjoy the magazine, then grab your camera and explore new techniques in creativity!
