In September 2014, X-Rite Photo Europe launched one of their most incredible prize draws, at the Photokina exhibition in Germany.
We offered one lucky photographer the unique opportunity to spend 8 days with X-Rite Coloratti Einar Erlendsson travelling across Iceland, photographing all of the wonderful sights. This prize is worth €8,000 and includes:
- An eight day trip to Iceland
- An opportunity to capture Iceland’s stunning landscape
- All inclusive trip
- All accommodation and transport
- Return flights to Reykjavik (from European locations)
- Two seats on the bus, one for you and one for your gear
- Training and advice from a world leading photographic trainer
- A gala dinner
Focus on Nature, who are delivering the tour, is run by X-Rite Coloratti, Einar Erlendsson. He commented: “The goal on our tours is to partner with photographers in every way, as they explore the extraordinary intricacies of Iceland through their lens. Our workshops are led by a carefully selected team of world-renowned photographers and local Iceland experts, Focus On Nature expeditions take you on a journey that highlights all the beauty Iceland has to offer, and provide you with new opportunities to learn and grow as a photographic artist. You will have unbelievable access to the magnificent and diverse landscapes of Iceland, and will dive into aspects of its unique culture.”
The prize draw ended on March 31st 2015 and we had a fantastic response with over people from all over Europe entering our competition. We used a random name generator to pick the winner and we’re delighted to announce Paola Chartroux from Italy as the lucky winner who will receive this fantastic prize.
Upon hearing the great news, Paola had this to say “This was really a great surprise and I am really glad to have this lucky chance! I already dream about being in this exciting land, thank you!!”
We will be featuring Paola’s journey through Iceland in June through a series of blogs and social posts, so make sure to follow us for more information.
The prize draw continues X-Rite’s tradition of rewarding its customers by sharing its passion and opportunities for education in photography.
Stay tuned for our next competition and who knows, next time it may be you!
