Swarovski Optik, one of the finest makers of binoculars and scopes, has a fantastic contest for digiscopers. The Digiscoper of the Year Contest allows digiscopers to showcase their shots and win great prizes.
For those unfamiliar, digiscoping is the use of a spotting scope and a digital camera to take photos through what is effectively a really great telephoto lens.
The contest is open for anyone with photos taken through any scope. Our current model of scope isn’t that great so we entered the shots below which were taken with a borrowed Swarovski 80mm HD scope.
The three “Digiscopers of the Year” will win outstandig Swarovski Optik products and the best 20 pictures will be published in the Swarovski Optik Digiscoping Yearbook 2009. A publication fee of EUR 300,- will be paid for this. – Swarovski Website
