Thirteen photographs which appear in the 2000 Nikon Calendar were taken by photographers from all over the world. All these photographs are from among the outstanding entries to the Nikon Photo Contest International.
The NPCI itself is rated as one of the world's major photographic events, and as many as 25.000 entries are received from some fifty countries every year (every other year from 1994).
The photographs of the year 2000 have been selected by Tsuneo Enari (photographer) and Akira Sato (photographer). Art design of the Calendar has been directed by Yutaka Mizukami (graphic designer).
Yannis Psilakis' photo that was selected and awarded was taken in Chile, Lake Chugara and it is featured as the Month December.
