We Reveal The New PANTONE® Color for October’s ‘Capture The Color’ Contest!


by Dave Mobbs – October 1st, 2015



We want to see your photographs from around the world that best represent the featured monthly PANTONE® Color. Prizes awarded every month to the top five images, as well as a GRAND PRIZE WINNER at the end of the year!

The color for October is PANTONE® 18-3943 Blue Iris which was the 2008 Color of the Year. “Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Institute® explains “As a reflection of the times, Blue Iris brings together the dependable aspect of blue, underscored by a strong, soul-searching purple cast. Emotionally, it is anchoring and meditative with a touch of magic. Look for it artfully combined with deeper plums, red-browns, yellow-greens, grapes and grays.”

How to enter:

  • Each month simply enter your details and upload your original photographs to Facebook.
  • Voting is open to the public so invite your fans, friends + family to vote.
  • The top 5 winners each month, determined by popular vote, will have their choice of an i1Display Pro, ColorChecker Passport or ColorMunki Display!
  • At the end of the year, all monthly winning images will be judged by members of the X-Rite Coloratti to select an overall Grand Prize Winner who will receive a Wacom Cintiq ® 27QHD Touch.
