Shutters Up and Open for ‘focus ASL’


Date: Friday, June 22, 2018

AIRSHOW LONDON today announced its focus ASL photography contest. Organizers are looking for the best aircraft photos from the 2017 show. Photographers, either professional or amateur, are encouraged to submit their awesome shots for a chance to win one of 17  prizes including the top prize of  $500 and a ‘fun bag of swag’ from NIKON.

Seventeen submissions will be chosen to appear in this year’s calendar/program.  Details can be found at  AIRSHOW LONDON Executive Director, Dave De Kelver says the contest will showcase some of the amazing images that have come out of the 2017 show.  He says, “Photographers love airshows and we love them right back.  A great photograph can capture and convey not only the engineering prowess of an aircraft but also the emotion that’s attached to the speed and daring of flight.  Even as technology takes us further and faster, our fascination and amazement of our ability to soar through the heavens appears to be heightened, not lessened.  And we all know a great picture is worth about Mach three.”

De Kelver also announced a new sponsor and proudly welcomed NIKON to its growing list of supporters. London is one of two stops for the NIKON team at Canadian airshows and will bring with it access to ‘free’ cameras and lenses on loan for each day of the show to Photo Pit Pass holders. Equipment will be supplied on a first come basis.  They will also have binoculars and field scopes available for the public to try out.

In addition, NIKON will hold a ‘photo of the day’ contest during the show.  A grand winner will be announced at the end of the event.  The prize package will be announced soon. Watch for details.

Leading up to the September 7 – 9th event NIKON will be offering tips on how to take your aviation photo techniques to greater heights. Follow NIKON on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram .and YouTube.

Anyone interested in submitting a photo to focus ASL photography encouraged to visit and get their photos in early.  The contest runs from Monday June 25th until the 20th of July.  Winners will be announced July 27th.
