Do you want to find yourself at the cutting edge of wildlife photography? Do you want the world’s best photographers to envy you? The National Geographic Russia magazine announces a photo competition. You send us an image on the “Birds” theme, and we give you access code to the unique WebCam for professional photo shooting of birds in the south of Hungary!*
Перейти к русскоязычной версии The idea of the contest belongs to the winner of the Best Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2010 competition, the best-known Hungarian photographer, the main character of our March cover story Bence Mate. Bence, the winner of a lot of prestigious professional contests, became famous in building special bird hides with reflective glass windows. They enable photographers to shoot from the distance and angle never imagined before and open new perspectives for birdwatching. Currently Bence is finishing a revolutionary project. In his new hide the camera Nikon D800 with 200-400 lens can be controlled via Internet. With the help of online interface it is possible to move the camera in all directions, zoom in and out, focus on the wanted object and change other settings of the camera. Photos and videos will be sent to the server where they can be easily downloaded. That is, you will be able to take a master shot being thousands kilometers away from the actual place of the shooting! Please send your pictures of birds (no more than two photos) at: firstname.lastname@example.org. The winning shot will give its sender one-day special access code to the remote professional camera mounted in one of the Bence’s bird-hides. You will have a chance to become a pioneer of the revolutionary photography technology! The best photographs sent to us will be shown on our website, and in our special blog we will be telling you about the progress of the project. Watch the video message of Bence Mate.
