Facebook competition winners announced

It’s the moment many of you have been waiting for! We’re delighted to announce the winners of our “Who are you with Nikon?” Facebook competition.

The standard of the entries has been fantastic and all the judges (which included professional photographers Rob Wood and Ralf Schmerberg) have been highly impressed at the creativity of the images. It was very difficult to choose a winner but after much thought our panel of judges selected their favourite 10 from the 100 most liked images from our Facebook fans.

So, without further ado, here are the winners…

In first place, congratulations to Luca Gaetano, who wins a Nikon D5000 kit. The judges loved the timing and sense of fun in Luca’s picture I AM VEGAN. Peter Gocht, Creative Director at our advertising agency, Jung von Matt said, “This is a perfect example of a lucky shot, released in the perfect moment. The pig even seems to smile.  The tagline is creative and makes the image even funnier.”

In second place we have Matthieu Chatelain and his photo I AM A LADY. Matthieu impressed the panel with his imaginative use of symmetry, silhouette and nature to take an arresting picture, and is rewarded with a Nikon D3100 kit for his efforts. Peter Gocht’s comments were, “To see the world with your own eyes is a gift. This photographer is imaginative and thanks to the tagline we can see it, too”.

And in third place, RillyRoos Shop’s I AM BRAVE captured the judges’ attention with its feelgood spirit. RillyRoos gets a Nikon COOLPIX S1100pj, with its amazing built-in projector. Peter liked this photo too saying, “The photographer captured a pure moment of happiness. Everyday life and piece of art at the same time.”
