Nikon Singapore brings Nikon VIP Access winners, Dr Chua Ee Kiam and Jason Tan Tze Li, on an exclusive, all-paid tour to the Galápagos Islands with National Geographic Photographer, Rich Reid this November.
The “Nikon VIP Access” campaign (www.nikonvipaccess.com) saw close to 600 entries received in its first quarter contest, “I AM AN EXPLORER”, held from 20 May to 16 June 2013. Participants were challenged to capture shots of Nature in Singapore, and 2 winners were chosen based on an 80% judges choice and 20% public voter’s choice.
This November, National Geographic photographer Rich Reid will be joined by Nikon VIP Access winners, Dr Chua Ee Kiam and Jason Tan Tze Li, aboard the National Geographic Endeavour. He will guide them as they learn new tips and techniques while capturing images of flightless cormorants, marine iguanas, giant tortoises, and the remarkable scenery of the islands.
A 10 day trip, the 2 winners will also journal their experiences through photos so as to be able to share their exclusive VIP privilege with everyone through images. From nature walks, island hopping to Isla Bartolomé, swimming with Galápagos penguins, a visit to Isla Santiago to see underwater caverns, wild tortoise spotting at Isla Santa Cruz, dolphin lookout at Isla Isabela and more marine animal-spotting over white beaches of the islands.
The best photos during the trip will be shared on Nikon Singapore’s Facebook Page at the end of November, at www.facebook.com/nikonsingapore.
