    Lake
    Success, N.Y. – Canon USA is embracing the onset of the football season
    with a national promotion encouraging football lovers to submit their
    best youth football photos in a “Why Do You Love Football” Photo
    Challenge.The wining image could earn the photographer a trip to attend
    Super Bowl XLIV in South Florida, the 2010 Pro Football Hall of Fame
    Enshrinement Celebration and have their photo on display in the Pro
    Football Hall of Fame for one year.New to this year’s program is
    Canon’s support of the NFL’s Youth Education Towns (NFLYETs) across the
    country.The 15 NFL YETs are education and recreation centers dedicated
    to making a positive, lasting difference in the lives of children.

    Canon
    will donate $150,000 worth of products, including EOS Rebel T1i d-SLR
    cameras, Pixma MP560 wireless photo all-in-one printers and Vixia
    high-definition camcorders to the NFL YET Centers as part of the
    effort.The nationwide amateur photo contest features two categories;
    “Action” and “Feature.” The “Action” category focuses on any image that
    captures football action during game play, while the “Feature” category
    comprises any football imagery outside of game action on the field.

    In
    addition to the adult division, there will be a contest for teens, ages
    13-18l.Interested parties may enter up to 10 youth football photos from

    Saints quarterback Archie Manning (father of Payton and Eliah); Canon
    Explorer of Light and Sports Illustrated photographer Peter Read
    Miller, and other prominent staff photographers and photo editors will
    determine the group of 14 finalists in each division.Voting will be
    turned over to the fans who can vote for their favorite photo between
    Dec. 21, 2009, and Jan. 8, 2010, via the contest Web site. The
    grand-prize winner will be named in early January.
