Win an Epson Stylus PhotoR3000 This is your chance towin your club a competition-winning printer

When it comes to print-based awards, competitions or exhibitions, not only does the image have to meet the grade, but the quality of the print must be uncompromisingly superlative. Photographers familiarwiththejudgingprocessforprintsubmissions will be all too aware that adjudicators look for detail in the shadows and highlights as well as overall tonal quality of the print. Poor print standards can be the difference between an acceptance and a fail. With a professional-quality printer, such as the Epson Stylus Photo R3000, photographers can take complete creative control over the prints to guarantee a superb finished result every time. The R3000 can handle A3+ prints without a problem and its front-loading fine art paper feed means there is no risk of damaging the paper. It is compatible with a wide range of media and can even print on board up to 1.3mm thick. Epson’s UltraChrome K3 inks with Vivid Magenta and three densities of black create amore natural-looking tonal range – perfect for withstanding close-up scrutiny from the judges and achieving an overall impact. What’s more, the R3000 will automatically switch to

either a standard photo or black matte depending on the media used. The devil is often in the detail and there is nothing less forgiving than a black & white print. With the R3000, true black & white images can be printed without the occurrence of the much-dreaded colour casts. In addition to tweaking the black & white tonality fromwarm to neutral or cool, the printer can also save preferences to easily recreate the results next time. The Epson Stylus Photo R3000 can reliably print professional quality images with ease, letting photographers take complete creative control over their photos from the moment the shutter closes right through to the printed copy.
