We want to recognize and reward aspiring photographers!
Parasoleil designs and manufactures for installations all over
the world-and we try to recognize the many talented people who have
created each unique space. In the same way, we established
the annual Parasoleil Photography Competition (inaugurated in May
2012) to recognize and award those photographers who have best
captured the beauty and uniqueness of our installations.
Good architectural photographers are in great demand. All
over the world, people seek out their talents. Whether it is
for their ability to capture the subtle nuances of a cooling shade
or the warm and welcoming contrasts of a natural setting, an
exceptional photographer is rare and valuable. Only a select
few possess the giftedness that combines a keen eye and a steady
hand with perfect timing.
We encourage all aspiring photographers to enter the Parasoleil
Photography Competition. A first place award in our
competition may be the beginning of a lucrative and legendary
career in architectural photography. And, as a design-awarded
company,Parasoleil will do it's best to promote your work-not as
exceptional, but as the best.
