Nikon Photo Contest 2022-2023 Judges

Esther Horvath

Nikon Ambassador

It is a great honor to be a judge for the Nikon Photo Contest 2022-2023. I am very excited to see the entries, new projects, and original works that have never been shown before. I encourage everyone to submit new work to the competition and take this opportunity to exhibit your work internationally. When you apply, choose your images for their message and visual beauty and include detailed captions to help us understand them.
