The 14th edition of SWAROVSKI OPTIK’s internationally popular “Digiscoper of the Year” competition has had a makeover. For the first time, all entries will be made via Instagram, and the winners will be selected at random so that amateur digiscopers also have an opportunity to showcase their photographs.
Digiscoping is the photographic technique of taking photographs with a digital camera or smartphone that is connected to a spotting scope or pair of binoculars, resulting in close-up and high-quality images.
The 2018 “Digiscoper of the Year” competition allowed entries via Instagram and this proved to be so popular that the 2019 competition will now be held solely on the social media platform. From 1st – 31st October 2019, keen digiscopers are invited to post their pictures on Instagram with the hashtag #DOY2019. Only public posts will be able to participate in the draw. The lucky winner will be picked at random and receive a set of SWAROVSKI OPTIK CL Companion binoculars with a VPA variable digiscoping phone adapter and adapter ring.
