Here are the Winners of the 2017 Lucie Technical Awards

October 26, 2017

The winners of the third annual Lucie Technical Awards were announced this week at the PhotoPlus Expo show. The awards serve as an adjunct to the Lucie Photographic Awards and honor innovations across a range of photo product categories. Photographers nominate products to be honored and those products are then winnowed down by a technical committee. (Full disclosure, PDN serves on this committee alongside other publications and experts.)
