Panasonic LUMIX Changing Photography Student Contest

Panasonic is inviting all U.S. college and university photography students to enter their first Changing Photography contest.

(Can Canadian college and university photography students also enter? Not according to the Rules, though the FAQ say, yes. We’re checking with Panasonic.)

Update 2013-09-03: We originally posted this entry on Aug 27 and we have now received confirmation that Canadian student entries will be accepted.

PHASE 1: Submit your video link (no more than 2 mins in length). Deadline: September 20, 2013.
PHASE 2: Panasonic will choose 10 finalists from PHASE 1, whose school will receive a brand-new LUMIX GH3.
These finalists must shoot a 2nd video on the LUMIX GH3. Deadline: October 15th, 2013.
PHASE 3: Final winners will be chosen and and announced at the 30th Anniversary PhotoPlus Expo Bash
on October 25th at the Jacob K. Javits Center in NYC.

Though there are five categories you can enter your videos in, the categories themselves are solely for categorizing purposes. Categories are: PORTRAIT | WEDDING / EVENT | JOURNALISM | GREETING CARD / INVITATION | GENERAL
