Nikon Announces Winner of 'The Full Story' Photo Contest

From Nikon:
 
Grand-Prize Winner to Go on Assignment to Galápagos with National Geographic Traveler Magazine’s Digital Nomad, Andrew Evans
 
MELVILLE, N.Y. – Nikon Inc., in partnership with National Geographic, today announced Brian Forbes Powell of Tucson, Ariz., as the grand-prize winner of “The Full Story” photo contest. Powell’s submission, “Test of Resiliency: Land and Ranchers in Arizona's Borderland Region,” was shot with the new FX-format Nikon D600 D-SLR camera and was chosen from among five first-prize winners. As the grand-prize winner, Powell will accompany National Geographic Traveler magazine’s Andrew Evans, also known as the Digital Nomad, on a National Geographic Expeditions trip to the Galápagos Islands next month.
 
“The Full Story” contest was created by Nikon to inspire budding photojournalists to convey their stories through imagery with the use of the Nikon D600 D-SLR camera. Nikon has a heritage of providing photojournalists with the tools they need to tell compelling stories through images and video, and with this contest Nikon is excited to support the next generation of storytellers.
 
Powell’s winning submission was composed of 19 still images with descriptive captions, a short essay, and an additional video slideshow. The winning story was chosen by a panel of qualified Nikon representatives for the compelling nature of its visual story, its creativity and its photographic quality.
 
“This is a story about land, the family ranchers who make their living from that land and whether the resiliency of each is sufficient to withstand the numerous challenges — both old and new — that threaten the environmental and cultural fabric of this rural landscape,” Powell wrote in his submission.
