Thanks to the generous support of EIZO APAC, we are thrilled to announce an exciting new category that is open to ALL entrants.

The category will be judged LIVE and IN PERSON by our professional judges during the event, however, to turn everything on its head, this category will be judged LIVE on an EIZO calibrated monitor from your digital files during the event!

The premise of this award is to honour the unique creativity and skill of the Photographic Artist. While photography is a large part of the Photographic Artist’s image production, there is often an equal weighting on the post-production skill required to bring a composite together.

Karen Alsop, co-founder of The Australian Photographic Prize and director of Story Art, has a long history of awards in the photographic industry for her complex and creative composites. Karen has long found it hard to ‘fit in’, and even though the photography industry, in general, is very embracing of new technologies, the Digital Artistry component of this type of composite work needed to be recognised to a greater capacity, while still acknowledging the photographic skill also required.

This category, created in partnership with EIZO, celebrates BOTH the Photographer and the Photographic Artist. Judges who specialise in this field will score on a live panel, viewing the entrant’s work on a widescreen, colour-managed, EIZO monitor.

The winner of this category will receive a stunning EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S Monitor and a trophy.

The best part of this prize in our opinion is the opportunity for the winner to market themselves as the EIZO Photographic Artist of the Year 2024.

The Prize

The winner of the EIZO Photographic Artist Award will receive an EIZO ColorEdge CS2400S Monitor!

Single Cable Connection with USB Type-C

The ColorEdge CS2400S features USB Type-C connectivity that allows you to display video, transmit USB signals, and supply power to a connected device such as a tablet or notebook PC. This convenient multi-purpose connectivity makes it faster and easier to connect when moving between creative work areas or when working remotely or in a home studio.

70 W Power Delivery

The USB Type-C terminal reliably charges a connected tablet or laptop with 70 W power delivery. This eliminates the need for a laptop's bulky power supply unit, freeing up space in your bag and on the desk.

ColorNavigator 7 Colour Management Software

A monitor needs to be calibrated at regular intervals to maintain colour accuracy. EIZO’s proprietary ColorNavigator 7 software provides an intuitive and highly precise solution to colour management. It allows you to schedule automatic recalibration, calibrate all colour modes simultaneously, and conduct correlation with external sensors to match the studio’s internal colour management framework. Calibration information is saved to the monitor instead of the operating system so users do not have to recalibrate even when using a different PC.

Colour Precision

Vivid Colours Reproduced to Industry Standards

The monitor’s wide colour gamut faithfully reproduces 98% of the DCI-P3 standard used in digital cinema and supports the BT.2020 standard used in broadcasting. In addition, it covers 99% of the Adobe RGB colour space so images shot in Adobe RGB will be displayed correctly. It also covers almost the entire ISO-coated and US web-coated CMYK colour spaces used in printing.

Sleek Cabinet Design

The outer design features a sleek cabinet with rounded edges and a non-intrusive stand base to allow the monitor to fit comfortably in any creative environment. A carrying handle on the back allows you to easily move it to other locations. USB ports are easily accessible from the side for connecting USB devices.

3D LUT for Accurate Colour Display

The monitor uses a 3D LUT which adjusts colours individually on an RGB cubic table. With the supported ColorNavigator 7 software’s emulation function, creators can check how content will appear to their audience. The 3D LUT also improves the monitor’s additive color mixture (combination of RGB), which is a key factor in its ability to display neutral gray tones.

10-Bit Simultaneous Display

Using the DisplayPort or HDMI input, the ColorEdge monitor offers 10-bit simultaneous display from a 16-bit look-up-table (LUT) which means it can show more than one billion colours simultaneously. This is 64 times more colours than you get with 8-bit display, resulting in smooth colour gradations and reduced Delta-E between two adjacent colours.

Broadcast and Cinema Presets

Preset modes for DCI-P3, BT.709, and BT.2020 ensure you can work in the appropriate color spaces and gamma values. In addition, preset modes for PQ (DCI and BT.2100) and HLG (BT.2100) are available for viewing HDR content. With the built-in calibration sensor, you can conveniently adjust or maintain the brightness setting for each preset.
