The company Kowa was established in 1894 first as a cotton wholesaler. 125 years later and Kowa is still owned by the founding family. Now in the third generation, it has grown into one of the largest privately owned, multinational Japanese companies with over 3500 employees, actively engaged in various manufacturing and trading activities in the fields of pharmaceutical, life science, information technology, textiles, machinery and consumer products.
Kowa offers products and services through 40 international business hubs around the world. In 1954, the optical division of Kowa was formed. Kowa Optimed Deutschland GmbH, based in Düsseldorf – Germany, is responsible for sales and distribution in Europe for two Kowa optical product categories: CCTV and industrial lenses and sporting optics.
Photography competition with great prices

What is Your Outdoors? The outdoors conveys memories, images, sounds, and smells differently for everyone. Whether it be a swim in the lake, viewing the stars, sitting in a blind, or hiking a new trail, there are so many great times in our lives that involve the outdoors. We want this to be more of a sharing experience than a photo contest. We want you to share your favorite memories of the outdoors by way of a photo and a caption. It does not need to be edited, nor do you need to use an expensive camera. The beauty of the outdoors is different through everyone’s eyes, so what is your outdoors?
