Slideshow: Nikon Australia Announces 2020 Surf Photo of the Year finalists

Nikon Australia has announced the finalists for its 8th annual Nikon Surf Photo and Video of the Year Awards. The leading optics and imaging company partnered with Surfing Australia to invite photographers and videographers of all skill levels to enter the competition. 20 images were selected along with three videos for consideration.

‘The Awards are a hugely important event on our calendar because they give the Australian surfing community a chance to honour our best, whether it be in the water competing or behind a lens. Inducting our latest Hall of Fame member is always a massive moment we cherish,’ says Chris Mater, CEO of Surfing Australia.

Images and videos were selected from a panel of 10 judges in the surfing industry, including seven-time World Surfing Champion and Nikon Brand Ambassador, Stephanie Gilmore. Entries were judged on the following criteria:

  • Innovation and creativity
  • Dramatic effect and sensory impact
  • Uniqueness
  • Composition of the panel

All finalist images and videos can be viewed here. Winners will be announced March 25th on what Nikon deems 'an exciting new television format.'
