Win a New Nikon D600 Digital SLR
We love sharing exciting contests with our audience, and here is a great opportunity to win one of five new Nikon D600 Digital SLRs from Nikon. Plus, a grand prize winner will be headed to photograph the Galápagos Islands!
Recently Nikon announced the launch of “The Full Story” contest, offering participants the chance to win an exclusive photo expedition with National Geographic Traveler magazine contributing editor and Digital Nomad Andrew Evans, best known for his online chronicling of his adventures exploring the world. Five first-prize winners will receive the new FX-format Nikon D600 D-SLR camera, and one lucky grand-prize winner selected from the first-prize winners will travel alongside Evans to the Galapagos where they will contribute to the Digital Nomad blog on NationalGeographic.com.
“The Full Story” contest is the latest program created by Nikon to inspire budding photojournalists to convey their stories through imagery. The contest will invite passionate shooters to submit one photo and an accompanying paragraph about someone or something that is meaningful to them and they think will be compelling to others. The subject of the photo could be anything from a loved one or a hometown to a personal passion. Participants will also have the opportunity to submit three unrelated photos that best showcase their photography talent.
“Nikon is thrilled to partner with National Geographic for this program; they are one of the world’s leading brands and are known for their exceptionally illustrative storytelling through stunning imagery and compelling reporting,” said Lisa Baxt, Senior Communications Manager for Nikon Inc. “This program is all about communicating through images, and the new D600 D-SLR is the ideal tool for the photo enthusiast, designed to deliver the image quality and performance benefits needed to make visual storytelling a full-time passion.”
Consumers can enter at www.nationalgeographic.com/nikon from now through November 25, 2012. The contest judges will then select five first-prize winners, who will be sent a Nikon D600 to shoot their “Full Story” between December 17, 2012 and January 7, 2013. A grand-prize winner will be selected from among the five first-prize winners and will be announced on January 25, 2013. The grand-prize winner will then accompany National Geographic Traveler’s Andrew Evans on a National Geographic Expedition to the Galápagos Islands aboard the National Geographic Endeavour to photograph the rich ecosystems and contribute to the Digital Nomad blog.
