2016 CRU Photography Contest

Enter for a chance to win!


CRU is proud to announce its annual photography contest, in which we solicit the work of professionals, passionate amateurs, and students alike. This year, we are asking for entries in three different subject categories:

PEOPLE. Capture the portraits that demonstrate the breadth of expression and emotion the human spirit can evoke.

STREET. Show us the beat from the street. The faces, activities, encounters, and candid moments that comprise the urban environment.

NATURE. Mountainscapes, gardens, waterways, weather, the sky-choose your best shots to illustrate the grandeur of nature.

Contestants have the opportunity to win storage devices used by professional photographers for storing and backing up their images and client projects.


The overall grand prize winner will receive a CRU RTX220-3QR storage enclosure. This portable two-bay RAID storage enclosure with high-speed USB 3.0 is perfect for a backup or working drive for photography.

Each category winner will receive a CRU ToughTech Duo, the rugged handheld storage device that lets you make two copies of your data simultaneously.

The People’s Choice winner will receive a CRU ToughTech m3, the portable disk drive enclosure perfect for protecting and carrying your work with you.
