X-Rite’s European distributor, X-Rite Photo Europe, which is actually Colour Confidence, has launched a competition entitled ‘Capture The Color’. It’s a monthly competition running from June through to the end of December this year. Each month X-Rite will pick a Pantone colour as the theme of the competition, the idea being to submit photographs that best represent this colour.
June’s colour is ‘Pantone 17-5641 Emerald’, a rich, lively and lush green that was Pantone’s Color of the Year in 2013.
Submissions should be entered via X-Rite’s Facebook Competition page. Photographers may enter as many of their own original photographs as they wish. Each month there will be five winners, voted for by the public, who will be able to choose between an X-Rite i1Display Pro, ColorChecker Passport or ColorMunki Display as their prize.
At the end of the year, X-Rite’s Coloratti will choose one overall Grand Prize Winner from all the monthly winners, who will receive a Wacom Cintiq 27QHD Touch.
Mind you the Americans will still spell colour wrong.
