2013 Update: Win Lytro Cameras During SXSW 2013. Three ways to win – compete, share or show up.
Win a Lytro camera just for sharing SXSW in living pictures!
Play along with us during SXSW and you could win a Lytro Light Field Camera. SXSW offers tons of entertaining, interactive activities and we want to reward you for sharing pictures that tell “only-at-SXSW” stories.
How to play:
- Publicly share a living picture from lytro.com/sxsw or any living picture shot in Austin during SXSW to your Facebook wall or Twitter feed along with hashtags #playlytro #sxsw. Can’t find a living picture you want to share? Share a traditional picture that you wish had been taken with a Lytro camera or join us at one of our SXSW events so we can take a living picture of you to share!
- Start sharing now – the sweepstakes starts at 12noon CST, Friday, March 9, 2012. You may share multiple pictures per day, but only one share on Facebook and Twitter each day until 11:59pm CST on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 will be eligible.
Last week we shipped our first Lytro cameras, and this week we got to meet some of our first owners who brought their own cameras to San Francisco’s Ferry Plaza Building. “It was an arrival point to look out at all these people with a Lytro camera in their hands…complete with wrist staps,” said Eric Cheng, our director of photography.
Later this week, the Lytro Team is headed to Austin, Texas for the SXSW Interactive/Music/Film Festival. We’ll be bringing Lytro cameras to show off and share, and some to give away too. Won’t be making it to South By this year? We’ll be live blogging and sharing living pictures of our adventures on Facebook and Twitter. If you’ll be there too, these are some of the places you can catch up with us.
