Commack, N.Y. — Tamron USA is celebrating national photo month by staging a Photo Scavenger Hunt.
Participants will creatively photograph 14 clues and set up an exhibit at Tamron's 3D virtual online sharing experience, MyPhotoExhibits.com, by May 31.
Tamron will pick the best overall exhibit based on image quality and creative interpretation of the clues. The winner will receive the SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD zoom lens with image stabilization ($1,300 retail value).
The Photo Scavenger Hunt is open to users of any photographic equipment who reside in the USA and are at least 18 years old. The exhibit must be set up at MyPhotoExhibits.com by May 31, and must contain 14 images each relating to one of each of all 14 clues (images may be ordered in any way).
Each image must be titled with the clue name. If any image does not correspond to any clue, or images are missing, the entry will not qualify.
All exhibits must be named Tamron Photo Scavenger Hunt or the entry will not qualify. For complete rules, visit: Tamron-USA.com/ScavengerHunt
Participants of the Tamron Photo Scavenger Hunt must creatively photograph the following clues: something that grows; an interesting structure; something that begins with the letter T; something blue; a daily task or chore; something that smiles; something wet; cooking utensil; something you look through; something that reflects; something broken; peace; friendship; and something old.
Tamron's SP 24-70mm F/2.8 Di VC USD zoom is billed by the company as the world's first and only full-frame fast aperture standard zoom lens equipped with built-in image stabilization.
The lens uses specialized high-grade glass in the three LD elements, three glass molded aspherical lenses, one hybrid aspherical lens and two Extra Refractive Index (XR) elements.
A rounded diaphragm enables a pleasing blurred background effect, and the Ultrasonic Silent Drive (USD) to powers a fast AF system with a full-time manual continuous focus mechanism.
The lens is available in Canon and Nikon mount versions, and a Sony mount is coming soon, Tamron said.
This TWICE webinar, hosted by senior editor Alan Wolf, will take a look at what may be the hottest CE products at retail that will be sold during the all-important fourth quarter. Top technologies, market strategies and industry trends will be discussed with industry analysts and executives.
