Microsoft Pro Photo Summit

This week was Microsoft's first Pro Photo Summit. It featured the launch of a program called Icons of Imaging, designed to showcase the work of leaders and innovators in photography; and the announcement of the winners of a Future Pro Photographer Contest.

The inaugural summit introduced the first six "imaging icons", an array of photographers whose specialties range from nature to celebrities to weddings, and who are recognized around the world as leaders in their specialty area of photography.

A panel of judges also selected an overall winner and three runners-up in the Future Pro contest, which Microsoft says had 13,000 entries from 92 countries. The grand prize went to a Romanian entrant.
