ACS National President, Ron Johanson ACS said, “We are very excited about this year’s awards for a number of reasons. The fact that they are the first National Awards to be held in Tasmania is very exciting in itself. The fact that they will be held at the MONA adds an even more special flavour to the event. In addition our first ever expo will bring a different dimension to the weekend. I’m delighted that Marc Van Agten and Fujinon Fujifilm are, as ever, sponsoring the ACS National Awards in such a wonderfully supportive way - we couldn’t do it without them. I’m doubly delighted that they are also exhibiting at the expo.”

Fujinon Fujifilm will be demonstrating their Cabrio range used by many ACS members and consisting of the Fujinon PL 19-90mm, 85-300mm and 14-35mm lenses at the expo.
