Each year the photographs are more and more impressive and the outstanding quality of both image capture and print astounds me,’ said Craig Heckenberg, general manager of Epson Australia’s Business Division.
“Epson is very proud to continue our support of this global competition and, as always, we look forward to seeing this year’s entries and the winners for each category,’ added Heckenberg.
