The time has come. The biggest competition in the history of 360 Cities has started.

There are prizes worth more than $1400 (US dollars). This is only possible thanks to Bill from Nodal Ninja(panoramic tripod heads and accessories), Joost from PtGUI (panoramic photo stitching software) who are the sponsors of the competition. The fisheye lens prize is sponsored by 360 Cities.

How to Win – Rules Summary

– The competition has two stages – the prizes for the first stage are the Fishseye lens and a PTGui Pro licence, for the second stage it will be the Nodal Ninja panoramic head and leveler and the second PTGui Pro license

– Each stage has a theme – the theme for the first stage is NATURE

– After each stage, first and second place prizes are awarded

– First prize is for most points during the stage (1 point per panorama, Max. points for uploading panoramas: 50, 4 points per new member referred to 360 Cities)

– Second prize winner is selected randomly from all participants

– A participant is anyone who publishes 4 or more panos or brings a new member to 360 Cities. Double your chances by doing both

    Happy to participate – if only the weather would cooperate. Nature in New Caledonia is gloomy and windy this week 😉

  2. Jan Vrsinsky says:

    Hi Richard, I hope the weather gets better soon. But even if it doesn’t, we accept even rainy panoramas, if they are nice 🙂

  3. Josh says:

    All sounds a bit complicated. Looking forward to seeing the entries though.

  4. Jan Vrsinsky says:

    Josh, how to win in plain English:

    Main prize is given to a participant with most points (1 pts per published panorama, 4 per new member)

    Second winner selected randomly from all who upload at least 4 panoramas

    Of course I recommend you to read the full rules
