    Canon EOS photo5 2014 ???

    Hello,

    Here it is September and I just realised, where is the Canon EOS photo5 2014 competition ?
    I have googled about and found most of the Photo5 pages are now error 404.
    Their EOS blog also seems to be down.

    I have asked them on Facebook about Photo5 (no answer).

    Does anyone have the inside gossip ?

    Wow, speak ill about someone and suddenly they contact you.

    Here is their reply

    Do you get much personal reward by playing in these Canon places?

    I've been wondering what has happened this year. When I checked the site last week all the photo5 stuff was still there from 2013 and not a whiff of anything 2014. I'm glad you managed to get an answer out of them. I enjoy the challenge of doing it, so will be disappointed there is nothing this year. Have to find some other challenges to do

    Thanks for the information.

    Yes, I love thinking out of the box and feeding off 4,000 others all trying to outsmart each other and being original with a short deadline.
    I love trying creative new things and it is one competition I made time for.

    I did learn a lot from being in the comp.

    Photo5 taught me more about exploring my camera and photography than any other methods, that is why I like it so much. It comes right at the wrong time of the year for me, but somehow I always squeeze it in. I'm not sure how. Last year there was nearly murder here when I organised one hour to do one of the briefs that was due that day. 5 minutes into it, someone turned up at my place unannounced, wanting to visit . They were put straight out the gate, and I probably wasn't at my politest.

    I knew they had the photo hunt last year, but as I think they went to different venues, and I didn't have transport, it would have been a problem. It looked interesting and challenging.

    It is funny you say this. It also came for me at the wrong time. My brothers birthday one weekend, the Bay to Birdwood classic and vintage car run the next and then the scout Joti jamboree. I am flat out yet I always found time somehow. It really taught me about trying new things and exploring my camera.
