Nikon Photo Contest 2018 - 2019 Judge

Jill Furmanovsky

CEO award winning rock and roll photographer

I think people should enter this competition in a sprit which is meant which is sort of celebration of what you’ve done with your camera. I entered the competition in 1983 and got the recommendation and it meant so much to me and it really helped me go forward with my work. Because it was like kind of green light saying, “Yes, you’ve got some talent.” So, I will say to anybody if you’ve got something your proud of and you are not sure if you should show to people, show it to us.
