TORONTO, Jan. 30, 2014 /CNW/ - Voting to select the winner of CNW's 2013
Photo of the Year contest is now open.
Vincent Demers, Multimedia Producer at CNW, has compiled a short list of
12 photos from thousands shared by CNW on behalf of its clients last
"At CNW we always encourage our clients to provide photos that would
appeal to newsroom photo editors," says Vincent. "A picture of a
customer enjoying the product is always more usable than that same
product shown against a white background, or worse, the dreaded 'grip
and grin' executive handshake."
CNW invites everyone to get in on the fun:
