MELVILLE, N.Y., May 15, 2017 – Former Major League All-Star and New York Yankee, Mark Teixeira, swings back into action with Canon U.S.A., Inc., a leader in digital imaging solutions, in support of the Canon Little LeaguePhotoContest powered by PIXMA printers. This partnership means Teixeira will be on hand at the Little League Baseball World Series in South Williamsport, PA, on August 27 to meet the winners and unveil the winning photos.
“As a former MLB player, there are countless photos of me playing professionally, but as a father, I now appreciate the importance of capturing the early years – there’s nothing like that first Little League photo of your child,” said Teixeira. “I’m very excited to partner with Canon this year because I understand the power of printed images that can be shared of life’s most exciting moments for years to come.”
Fans are encouraged to make the season last a lifetime by submitting their favorite photos to the Canon Little League Photo Contest. By visiting www.littleleague.org/canonphotocontest and submitting photos through June 30, 2017 fans will have the chance to win one of three grand prizes (one for each theme) including a trip to join Mark in South Williamsport, PA and see their winning photos on display for up to one year in the World of Little League Museum in the Richard “Hank” Bauer, Jr. Little League Photography Exhibit in the World Series Gallery presented by Easton Foundations. “Canon is proud to partner with the Little League World Series and team up with generations of families hoping to capture the moment where their little leaguer’s hard work and character is put on display,” said Yuichi Ishizuka, president and COO, Canon U.S.A., Inc. “Canon PIXMA Printers continue to support those looking to make these memorable action-packed moments sharable for generations to come.”
The Canon Little League Photo Contest powered by PIXMA Printers focuses on three themes:
All images should capture the spirit of what it is like to be a baseball fan. Entries will be judged on the use of the theme (50 percent) and on the quality of the image (25 percent) and overall impression (25 percent).
“The Canon Little League Photo Contest serves as a celebration of treasured Little League memories each year,” said Liz DiLullo Brown, Little League’s vice president, marketing & Communications. “Those special moments, captured and cemented in time through photographs, help us to remember how treasured the Little League program is by families around the world.”
