2021 BenQ PhotoVue Competition - Motion in a Still

04-13-2021

To celebrate the launch of our newest 4K monitor for photographers and videographers, the SW271C, we are releasing a special challenge: capture motion in a still! Test your creativity and technical skills by entering our competition for the chance to win our latest monitor and cash prizes.

 

Motion in photography creates a sense of time and makes your photos look more natural and compelling. We want your photos to take us to the scene you captured and immerse us in the moment you immortalised.

 

Despite the world coming close to a standstill in these difficult times, and with many of us stuck indoors, we can still create original images by observing our surroundings. Motion can happen all around us: clouds moving through the sky, shadows and light moving across the floor, leaves rustling, curtains billowing in the breeze, water droplets on a windowsill, dogs running in the park, hair flying, waves crashing… Movement is everywhere! 

 

Here are the awesome prizes you could win:

 

First place:

Our brand-new BenQ SW271C PhotoVue monitor and €1,000.

Second place:

A brand-new BenQ SW271C PhotoVue monitor and €500.

Third place:

A brand-new BenQ SW271C PhotoVue monitor.

 

The rules are as simple as ever:

  1. Take an interesting “motion in a still” photo
  2. Download the AQCOLOR frame we created for this competition from HERE
  3. Drop your motion photo in the frame
  4. Upload the final image on Instagram and in the description, add the hashtags #benqinmotion, #AQCOLOR and mention @aqcolor_by_benq. Make sure to add your country name in the description too.
  5. Last but not least, follow @aqcolor_by_benq on Instagram.
