August 1, 2014
Awards Represent Hottest Products in Photographic Industry
ATLANTA, Ga. – Professional Photographer magazine announced today the 2014 Hot One Award winners, which signify the best products and services in the photographic industry.
The annual awards showcase the top offerings released in the previous year. Nearly 250 products were submitted by almost 100 companies, making the Hot One Awards one of the industry's biggest and most respected competitions for studio equipment, software, accessories and other pro photography gear and services.
Winners were elected by a panel of photographers, making this a purely democratic process by professionals, for professionals.
"The winners of the 2014 Hot One Awards represent 'the pro's choice' of new photographic products," said Jeff Kent, Hot One Awards editor for Professional Photographer. "This isn't some scientific analysis conducted by a bunch of clinicians in lab coats, but a poll of real pros working in the real world. The result is a list of worthy winners that help make professional photography easier, more creative and more efficient."
Professional Photographer magazine's Hot One Awards have represented the pros' choice of the year's best new photography gear for the past 15 years.
