Epson today announces the winner of its competition to celebrate 40 years since the launch of the first electronic printer, the EP-101. Vitaliy Sosnin of Russia has won ‘the trip of a lifetime’, worth €5,000, for his excellent visual interpretation of 40 years of innovation.
Designed to spark the imagination of Europe’s image makers and mark four decades of innovation and inspiration, the competition set a challenge to design an image to be used on Epson’s birthday card. Hundreds of images were submitted to the pan-European competition and the top 40 entrants were displayed at Photokina.
Barbara Kuhr, Head of Strategic Marketing at Epson Europe, added: “It has been fantastic to see how artists, photographers, designers and imaging enthusiasts from all across Europe have risen to the challenge of capturing 40 years of innovation in a single image. It was a tough decision for our distinguished panel of judges to select the winner, but Vitaliy has really excelled and we were delighted to have his representation of 40 years of innovation on our stand at Photokina.”
Alongside Vitaliy, Eugene Ivanov and Ekaterina Tsukanova, also from Russia, receive €1,000 and €500, respectively, of Epson products. All three finalists also receive a professional print of their work.
