As we reflect back on 100 years of Nikon, we’re challenging our Instagram fans across Europe to take photos that reflect themselves and their Nikon cameras. The best ‘selfie’ one can imagine, we want to see our fans reflected in a mirror, a piece of glass, a puddle or anything else they can think of with their Nikon. We’re calling this challenge #LookBackAtNikon, and we have some great prizes for the best images:
Entries are open from now until the 15th of September. To enter, share your reflection with your Nikon camera on Instagram with the hashtag #LookBackAtNikon.
First, second, third and honourable mentions will be chosen by Nikon and a panel of guest judges including davidwallaceshoots, Palomaparrot, malthezimakoff, danielsjensen, marisahampe, nikon_photography_, mazleitner, mattiabonavida and rbs_photo.
