Canon Announces Winner in Football Photography Contest

Canon has announced that Diana Porter of Houston, Texas, has been chosen as the Grand Prize winner in Canon’s second annual “Why Do You Love Football?” photo contest.

Porter won with a photo of two youth football players. One young boy is shown running with the ball while the other is captured stretched out horizontally in mid-air attempting a tackle. The photo is captioned “Superman! I love it when football players imitate superheroes.”

Porter’s prizes included a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi camera, a PIXMA iP6220D printer, trips for four to the 2007 Super Bowl and 2007 Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement ceremony, and a $500 gift certificate to the Hall of Fame Museum store.

Canon said earlier that it would name a Grand Prize winner along with two First Prize winners, one each in Action and Feature categories. The company web site, however, only shows the Grand Prize winner with no mention of First Prize winners.

Co-sponsored by the Pro Football Hall of Fame, judges for the nationwide amateurs-only contest included Sports Illustrated photographer Peter Read Miller, Associated Press photographer Mark Duncan, U.S. Presswire photographer Craig Melvin, Cleveland Browns team photographer John Reid III, freelancer Tony Tomsic and former NFL quarterback Archie Manning.
