Swarovski Photo Contest Announced

Swarovski Optik has announced its 9th annual "Digiscoper of the Year" contest. Several prizes will be awarded, so it pays to play. A panel of experts will review entries in four categories, and for the first time, there will be a special prize for the best shots taken using a smartphone adapter.

The "Digiscoper of the Year" contest will accept submissions until September 30, 2014. The digiscoped pictures and videos should feature animals (birds, mammals, reptiles, insects and amphibians) in their natural habitat and photographed using a digital camera or with a smartphone through the eyepiece of a spotting scope or binocular. The pictures submitted must be allocated to one of the following four categories: Behavior/Action, Portrait, Mammals, Videos.

From these four category winners, one overall winner will be given the title "Digiscoper of the Year 2014". The top prize is a complete set of Swarovski Optik digiscoping equipment, which consists of an ATX or STX eyepiece module, 25-60X85mm objective module, digiscoping adapter, spotting scope rail, tripod, and tripod head. The three other category winners will each receive Swarovski EL 32 binoculars.
