Nintendo has teamed up with National Geographic Kids and The Royal Photographic Society to launch a UK-wide Nintendo 3DS photography competition.
Entries are split into six categories – Animals, People, Places, Objects, Nature and Augmented Reality - so no matter what you love to shoot, there’s a theme to suit you. The photo entries will be judged by an expert panel, including Lauren Jarvis, editor of National Geographic Kids magazine, and Dr Michael Pritchard, Director General at the RPS. The most promising photographer will win the top prize of a trip for two to Paris and a photography masterclass, while lucky runners-up will be awarded Nintendo goodies in recognition of their skill.
“We’re really excited to be working with Nintendo on this project,” said Dr Michael Pritchard, RPS. “3D photography has been around since the 19th century, but Nintendo 3DS gives people of all ages the opportunity to experiment with the technology and create their own 3D masterpieces.”
Lauren Jarvis, Editor of National Geographic Kids magazine, added: “There’s so much to be inspired by in the UK, whether you live in the city or the countryside. National Geographic Kids is all about young people getting out and exploring their world, and I can’t wait to see the 3D pictures they capture on Nintendo 3DS.”
To enter the competition, just take a 3D photo in-line with one of the six themes, using the in-built cameras on the Nintendo 3DS system and upload it to the dedicated competition website found HERE between April 2nd and June 17. The dedicated competition website is alsp accessible through the Nintendo 3DS browser on the Nintendo 3DS system. Each photo uploaded to the website will have its own dedicated QR Code and, by reading these QR Codes on the Nintendo 3DS system, users will be able to view their favourite images in 3D.
