Canon Digital SLRs Top Prizes in Trains Magazine Contest

Photographers specializing in railroad photos have a chance to win Canon digital SLRs in a contest sponsored by Trains magazine.

The theme for the magazine’s annual contest is “Against the Elements.” Photos taken between November 1, 2005, and October 31, 2006, are eligible. Judges will be looking for “intriguing composition, effective use of light, and inspiring and creative images.” Winners will be announced in the April 2007 issue.

The grand prize is a choice of a six-day Canadian rail trip from Montreal to Halifax or a steam locomotive trip to be determined, plus a Canon EOS 30D with 24-85mm lens.

First prize is a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with 18-55mm lens. Second prize is $300, and five runners up will receive a Canon gadget bag.

Trains isn’t a photography magazine as such, but is a very photographer-friendly publication for photographers who like to shoot trains and related railroad scenes. The magazine publishes dozens of photos in each issue, most if not all from freelancers, and welcomes submissions from readers. Unlike some hobby magazines, photographers are paid for their work.
