How good are your Pokémon Go photography skills?
We’re asking, because Niantic is holding an in-app augmented reality photography contest for all players where Pokémon Go has been officially released. Yep, it’s not limited to US residents only, and rewards include a sweet swag bag containing a poster autographed by the team, a pair of wireless Bluetooth earbuds and — this is the best part if you still avidly play the mobile game — a Go Plus accessory.
The contest lasts until October 25 2017 and takes place on Instagram, where Pokémon trainers are challenged to take an AR picture in accordance to the rules of the contest. As officially confirmed, the contest is skill based and photos will be judged on terms of quality.
