The Lucie Technical Awards aim to honor the large and small companies, as well as the individuals, who have advanced the photographic industry in a given year. All inclusive, these awards intend to encompass such things as cameras, lenses, lighting, and accessories, to papers, printers, software and more.
The Lucie Technical Awards is the newest initiative of the Lucie Foundation, and sister program of The Lucie Awards.
“I think The Lucie Technical Awards is great. Of course photography is a lot about the art, but the tools don’t get a lot of recognition, and it’s nice to see people paying attention to the tools that make the art possible. That to me is so important, because without the lens, there is no picture.” - Gregg Maniaci, President and CEO of Tamron USA
We've been following The Lucie Awards for years and it's so cool that this year it's now looking at the companies that help the artists make the art. We are just so honored that we've been recognized as one of those companies that has received the award for helping them create their art. - 2016 Winner: Gitzo for Best Tripod, Paul Zakrzewski, Director of Marketing
