FIRST EVER OFFICIAL POKEMON GO CONTEST IS NOW!

In an interesting turn of events, Niantic announced a global contest, which is pretty awesome, to say the least. In their efforts to push AR- based gameplay forward, Niantic is hosting an AR-Contest! This is a first of it’s kind of deal for Niantic.

The winner of this contest will be receiving a Pokemon Go Plus, and a Pokemon Go Poster signed by the Pokemon Go Team along with a sweet pair of Bluetooth earbuds (I hope they are the new Google Pixel Buds!).

To participate in the contest all you gotta do is, take an AR-Image of the Pokemon that you are encountering. The judging of the contest will be based on the quality of images that are being captured and is completely skill based.

There are a set of rules for this contest, you can read them over here There is a lengthier version of the rule set (when I say lengthy, trust me it is lengthy!) The most important rules that you need to remember are as follows:-

Snap Epic Pokemon GO AR photos and post them on Instagram using the hashtag #PokemonGOcontest

– The contest lasts until October 25, 2017

– no purchase or payment is necessary to enter or win this contest

– The contest is limited to countries where Pokemon GO has been officially released as of October 11, 2107

This being an online contest, people will troll Niantic and Pokemon Go a lot for sure! I can’t wait to see all the funny images that people will put up on #PokemonGOcontest.
