Presenting the 2020 Inductees
Photographers from 157 countries have cast more than 40,000 votes to decide the five cameras to induct into the 2020 Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame. Twenty-five nominees across the five categories appeared on the ballot, which was selected by the MPB team.
“I’m thrilled by the response,” says Matt Barker, CEO and founder of MPB. “We launched the Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame to give creative people around the world an exciting way to engage in their passion and a chance to help make photo history. The votes are testament to how much people love their camera gear.”
MPB will present awards to the manufacturers of the 2020 inductees, and the gear will be enshrined in displays later this year at MPB offices in Brighton, Brooklyn, and Berlin. The life and legacy of the 2020 Photo and Video Kit Hall of Fame inductees will be celebrated on the MPB website and on social media @mpbcom.
