As we near the shipping date of LYTRO ILLUM, we wanted a way to reward selected early adopters of this revolutionary camera. That’s why we’re excited to take the wraps off the Lytro Photo Adventure — a once-in-a-lifetime photography experience as part of the Ultimate Lytro Photo Experience Contest.
What is the Lytro Photo Adventure?
As part of the Ultimate Photo Experience Contest, five photographers will have the opportunity to win an all-expenses paid trip to Iceland, one of the most remote and beautiful places on Earth.
The five grand prize winners will take part in an exclusive photo shoot with acclaimed adventure photographer Chris Burkard and gain hands-on training on LYTRO ILLUM. Winners will also get to explore Iceland’s remarkable terrain through a possible of outdoor activities like paddle boarding, surfing, climbing, ice cave exploration, hiking, Northern Lights viewing, mountain biking, or whale watching.
Who is eligible for the Lytro Photo Adventure?
Anyone in the U.S. who has pre-ordered or pre-orders the LYTRO ILLUM camera directly from Lytro at preorder.lytro.com before July 31, 2014.
After pre-ordering the camera, upload three original images that demonstrate how you plan to tell a unique visual story leveraging LYTRO ILLUM’s refocus ability. All three images must be of the same visual scene, captured from the same angle, with the same exposure and lighting, but the focus should be distinctly different in each image.
How are winners determined?
Winners will be judged and selected based on how compelling their visual story is, creativity, originality and use of shifting focal points. Winners will be notified in September.
This exclusive opportunity not only gives photographers the chance to capture the Icelandic landscape in its purest form, but create images of potentially historic importance as LYTRO ILLUM enters the wild for the first time.
To pre-order LYTRO ILLUM at a special introductory price of $1,499 visit preorder.lytro.com.
