Drobo and Photofocus have teamed up to present the first annual Impact Photo Contest in conjunction with World Photography Day on August 19, 2019. Prizes are essential gear for all photographers and they’re worth $4000.

World Photography Day

“World Photography Day is an annual, worldwide celebration of the art, craft, science and history of photography … Since the early 19th century, photography has become an ever-increasing medium of personal expression and appreciation for countless people around the world.

“A photograph has the ability to capture a place; an experience; an idea; a moment in time. For this reason, it’s said that a picture is worth a thousand words. Photographs can convey a feeling faster than, and sometimes even more effectively than words can. A photograph can make the viewer see the world the way the photographer sees it.” – worldphotographyday.com
