The Golden Shopping Trolley Awards is a fantastic photographic competition which explores the man-made or urban landscapes of this world.

The judges of the awards include Christian Fletcher and Tony Hewitt who are both acclaimed Australian Landscape Photographers of the Year. So if you live anywhere in the world be sure to enter this great photographic competition. Who knows you could be the winner of the now famous Gold Shopping Trolley trophy!

SOME OF THE PRIZES:
Ezio Colour Edge CG246 Monitor
Sigma 35mm f1.4 DG HSM Lens
The Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM is a state of the art lens designed for full frame cameras but can also be used with APS-C sensors as well. The first addition to the Art category in Sigma’s Global Vision, the 35mm 1.4 DG HSM includes new features based around a unique lens concept and design. The 35mm is a staple focal length in the world of photography, and paired with Sigma technology, this lens can take artistic expression to the next level. The lens is equipped with technology including a Hyper Sonic Motor (HSM), floating internal focusing system, SLD and FLD Glass elements. The HSM ensures quiet, high speed, accurate autofocusing while the floating focusing system allows for superior optical performance with subjects at a closer shooting distance. The SLD glass elements along with the FLD glass elements, which are equal to fluorite, help correct both axial and chromatic aberration. The large 1.4 aperture make it ideal in low light and the lens is compatible with the Sigma USB dock and Optimisation Pro software to adjust and fine tune focusing parameters. The Sigma 35mm 1.4 DG HSM is a must have for any camera bag.
