Nikon announced the “Nikon D60 Moving Moments Photo Contest” in conjunction with the D60 D-SLR advertising campaign featuring Ashton Kutcher.
Beginning May 23, 2008, consumers can upload an image with an accompanying description to www.ashtonsd60.com for a chance to win the grand prize of a trip for two to Los Angeles to attend The Hollywood Style Awards sponsored by Nikon and a new D60 camera kit to capture all of the action. Sixty first prize winners will also receive a new D60 camera kit allowing them to capture their “moving moments” with incredible ease.
“We are very excited to engage consumers through the ‘Moving Moments Photo Contest’,” said Lisa Baxt, senior communications manager for Nikon Inc. “This contest is a fantastic way for people to share their favorite memories and the moments that move them for a chance to win some great prizes.”
One-hundred and twenty semi-finalists in the “Nikon D60 Moving Moments Photo Contest” will be chosen beginning June 21 by a panel of judges based on the interpretation of the “moving moments” theme, their accompanying description and photo quality. The sixty D60 winners will be determined by consumers visiting and voting on their preferred picture on ashtonsd60.com between June 25 and July 15, 2008. The image that receives the most consumer votes will win the grand prize.
