HONG KONG, CHINA--(Marketwired - Nov 11, 2017) - Canon Hongkong Company Limited (Canon Hongkong) (TSE: 7751) (NYSE: CAJ) today honoring winners of Canon PhotoMarathon (CPM) Hong Kong 2017 for their outstanding shots of the city during the competition's 9th annual awards ceremony held at the Canon Image2. On 8 October 2017 a record 3,000 contestants competed in the CPM's Challenge, Open and Student Categories, setting out from the Hong Kong Convention & Exhibition Centre to visit designated checkpoints across the city and shoot photographic masterpieces based on themes announced only on the day of the event. First held in Hong Kong in 2009, the CPM is considered the city's premier photography competition.

A total of 41 prizes were presented at today's ceremony. This year's "Best of Show" Award in the Challenge Category went to Chow Ho Man, who shot according to the theme "Intersection". In addition to winning attractive prizes, Chow will represent Hong Kong in the Canon PhotoMarathon Asia Championship 2018, a regional event where the top CPM winners gather to participate in themed challenges.

Tsui Kwok Ho, working with the themes "Distance" and "Sense of Time", won the "Best of Show" Award in the Open Category. He will represent Hong Kong in the CPM Taipei 2018.

In the Student Category, Lee Ho Yin took home the Gold Award in the individual competition with his outstanding shot based on the theme "Grace/ Elegance". Clementi Secondary School was the winner of the Gold Award in the inter-school competition.

All winners were determined by the CPM 2017 professional judging panel, which included Mr. Tsai King Yan, a founding honorary member of the Hong Kong Institute of Professional Photographers; Ms. Topaz Leung, a veteran commercial photographer; Ms. Celia Cheng, Hong Kong first photowriter to visit the "three extremes" and seven continents; sports photographer Mr. Brian Ching; and Mr. Dominic Chan, Senior Manager of Canon Hongkong. The prizewinning photos were selected from more than 7,000 remarkable entries based on a range of criteria including relevance to the theme, creativity in interpreting the theme, and use of color, light, shadow and composition.

To showcase the charm of the city's local communities, the secret checkpoint at the Hong Kong Federation of Youth Groups' multimedia center, M21, hosted a creative "Shoot for Hong Kong" experience for all contestants. Also this year the Student Category was expanded to give local students the chance to experience the excitement of the CPM under the guidance of professional photographers.

"I would like to thank our five judges for their hard work, and for taking time out of their busy schedules to help us select the winning masterpieces from more than 7,000 entries," said Mr. Shunichi Morinaga, Canon President and CEO. "Also, I am delighted to see such passion for photography from the younger generations. This year, 200 teenagers participated in the Student Category, and the works they submitted were of comparable quality to those of the adults.

"The Canon PhotoMarathon is Asia's premier photography competition and a great chance for enthusiasts to exchange insights and experience the marathon challenge," Mr. Shunichi Morinaga added. "We are already looking forward to celebrating the 10th anniversary of the CPM in Hong Kong next year, where we hope to bring everyone an even more amazing shooting experience!"
