  Epson - Principal Sponsor

Since the early 1990s, Epson has been instrumental in providing the worldwide community of professional photographers with the freedom to explore their craft in entirely new directions. The company has achieved this through the continued research, development and introduction of unique photographic solutions that meet the increasingly sophisticated print requirements of professional photographers. 

Epson’s commitment to the New Zealand professional photographic community is demonstrated not only by its drive to deliver market leading photo products, but its ongoing support and sponsorship of the New Zealand Institute of Professional Photography (NZIPP). Importantly, it is this support regarded within Epson that best exemplifies the aims of both organisations – professional excellence in the field of photography. Epson’s reputation within the photographic community has resulted from much more than sponsorship; and with research showing that 71 per cent of professional photographers choose Epson when printing photographs, it’s clear that our products and technologies are the key critical factors. 

Epson is proud to be the principal sponsor of INFOCUS 2007 and would like to congratulate all photographers who have been recognized in the Iris Awards 2007.
