One product that over the years seems to have been a steady seller and used by many I meet, is the ColorChecker Passport.

This X-Rite product seems more than others to have caught the end users attention for colour management purposes.

Now, nearly a decade since its introduction, X-Rite are running a competition to mark the occasion.

Here we go with the details:

  • X-Rite launches the competition to celebrate the ColorChecker Passport Photo turning 10
  • Participants are encouraged to ‘show their colour story’ and send in pictures demonstrating how they use the ColorChecker Passport Photo
  • Winners will receive an X-Rite bundle worth £500

Birmingham, UK, 31 January 2019 – X-Rite Incorporated, the world leader in colour management and measurement technologies, announces the launch of their competition to celebrate the ColorChecker Passport Photo turning 10, offering the chance to win a X-Rite anniversary bundle worth £500, including an X-Rite i1Studio.

To take part in the competition, participants need to upload an image to the competition page illustrating their colour story; showing the ColorChecker Passport Photo in action and explain where the picture was taken.

What’s more, some of the best entries will be featured on a wall installation at The Photography Show in Birmingham, UK, between 16th – 19th March, offering winners the chance to showcase their images to thousands of event attendees.

The Passport consists of three photographic targets in one pocket-sized protective case making it ideal for all types of work, providing effortless colour control and creative versatility.
