"SLOW MOTION VIDEO AWARD 2016" was held for the first time this year. We received more than 100 videos not only from Japan but also from all over the world. We appreciate very much for your entries.
After reviewed by our four judges, Mr. Shinichiro Ito (judge chief), Ms. Eleanor Stride, Mr. Ryohei Funatsu, and Mr.Takeharu Eto, the videos for "Excellent Video Award", "Scientific Video Award", "Artistic Award", and "Entertaining Video Award" have been chosen.
Since there were so many excellent works, 9 videos were additionally chosen for "Fine Work" or honorable mentions, as these were popular among the judges and were very close to the awards.
This contest was established to broadly gather fantastic slow motion images taken with high speed cameras and to share such fine works with everyone. By doing so, we are hoping to expand the possibilities of the future of slow motion images.
