Pokémon GO AR Photo Contest Launches

One of the prizes

People playing Pokémon GO are getting a chance to show off their stuff. By which I mean, their photography skills.

Pokémon GO, the popular augmented reality mobile game, recently announced a contest that requires participants to take pictures using the game's augmented reality filter.

Trainers are asked to capture photos and upload them to Instagram with the hashtag #PokemonGOcontest.

Niantic has launched the Pokémon GO AR Photo Contest this week, challenging players to snap "epic AR photos" while trying to catch 'mon. Yep, it's not limited to U.S. residents only, and the victor will get 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. Niantic's last big event, the Pokémon Go Fest, unfortunately turned out to be a huge mess. These links leave Siliconera.
