Canon Starts the Year with 5-3 Win in Photo Magazine Contests

Canon kicked off the year with a 5-3 win over Nikon in the reader photo contests in the January editions of the two largest U.S. photo magazines – but it was a one-magazine contest for NikonvsCanon.com purposes this month.

Canon had five of the winning pictures in Shutterbug’s “Picture This!” contest, while three were shot with Nikon and two others were made with other brands.

January is the month that Popular Photography and Imaging runs the results of its annual photo contest and skips the usual “Your Best Shot” monthly contest. Traditionally, Pop has published camera details, but last year only gave data for a few of the winners of the annual contest. This year, the magazine provided no camera information on any of the 25 pictures published. Very frustrating for those of us who keep track.

This is the third year that NikonvsCanon has counted the monthly results. In 2007, Canon won 71-56 win with other brands accounting for 37 winning photos. In 2006, the score was 89-83 in Canon’s favor, with 43 also-rans.

Popular Photography and Imaging and Shutterbug run photo contests for readers each month. The majority of winning photos are shot with either Nikon or Canon cameras, and www.NikonvsCanon.com tracks the winners as a means of keeping score in the perennial argument among photographers of which brand is better.
