Your Stars Balance: 999
9th May 2012 - Today heralds the launch of the countrywide 3D photography competition which will see you put your creative camera skills to the test to become the South African Nintendo 3DS Photography Champion. Recent research from Nintendo found that 60% of Nintendo 3DS owners take more than 100 photos a year* and 13% take over a 1,000 which equates to three per day*, so say cheese and get capturing using the built-in cameras on the Nintendo 3DS system today!
Competition entries are split into six dedicated categories and no matter what you love to shoot, there is a theme to suit you. The categories include Animals, People, Places, Objects, Nature and Augmented Reality, which fully utilises the Augmented Reality feature of the Nintendo 3DS system. The photo entries will be judged by Core Gaming Systems, with the most promising photographers winning:
1st prize - Mario Nintendo 3DS pouch and exclusive Mario Pin
2nd prize - Nintendo 3DS game
3rd prize - Limited Edition Mario bag
Entering the competition couldn’t be simpler. Take a 3D photo in-line with one of the six themes using the built-in cameras on the Nintendo 3DS system. Once you have captured your masterpiece, upload it to the dedicated competition website from 9th May until the 17th June 2012. The dedicated competition website is accessible through the Nintendo 3DS browser on the Nintendo 3DS system or through an Internet browser on a computer, and will feature galleries of all the images that have been uploaded. 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.
The Nintendo 3DS features two outer facing and one inner facing camera, allowing you to take both 2D and 3D photos, and record up to 10 mins of 3D video footage. Photos taken using the Nintendo 3DS cameras can be customised by adding fun and creative filters and effects. You can even draw on your photos using the Nintendo 3DS stylus to give them that personal touch!
