Each year independent organisations nominate the best equipment from different categories of digital imaging products released in Europe during the preceding months.
Nikon’s range of best-in-class products are chosen all over the world for their quality, variety and overall performance. Nikon continues to develop excellent products in its ambition to be the manufacturer and partner of choice for photographers at all levels. The awards underpin Nikon’s leadership position in high-end photography and recognise the company’s continued pursuit of excellence.
The Digital Imaging Websites Association (DIWA) is an international network of independent websites dedicated to digital imaging. The organization harnesses the collective expertise of its members to publish authoritative, neutral and reliable product reviews.
DIWA Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards are issued throughout the year for outstanding and highly-recommended products. At the end of each year a panel of expert judges assesses all of the Gold Award winners and selects the products that will receive a ‘Best Of The Best’ Platinum Award. The Awards only go to worthy winners: for example in the case of digital cameras, more than 200 details must be checked, tested and evaluated.
The European Imaging and Sound Association (EISA) is the largest editorial multimedia organization in Europe. Member magazines are specialists in the Audio, Mobile Electronics, Video and Photo arenas and are spread across Europe.
Every June, the editors-in-chief from all EISA member publications meet to decide which of the products analyzed in their publications over the preceding year deserve a coveted EISA Award. The EISA adopts a flexible approach towards its Awards and categories are not simply repeated year-on-year. Instead, the EISA Awards strive to reflect the marketplace and categories may be dropped or added to reflect market trends.
The Technical Image Press Association (TIPA) was founded in 1991 and is an organization of independent photo and imaging magazines from across Europe.
The annual TIPA Awards focus specifically on photo and imaging products. Members meet once a year to discuss projects, share opinions, and comment on industry innovations and trends. During these three-day meetings, TIPA editors vote by secret ballot for the best photo and imaging products in Europe. Products are judged based on quality, performance and value. The annual TIPA Awards are generally recognized as being one of Europe’s most prestigious accolades for professional imaging products.
