6th Instagram Contest
Oct. 17, 2017

We are now taking submissions for 360ºimages shot using RICOH   THETA. The theme this time will be “Halloween”!

Please use the THETA+ or THETA+ Video app to edit 360ºimage you shot of a Halloween event or related subject and post it to Instagram. We will then select 20 outstanding images from among the images entered into the contest and give winners a gift of THETA goods. From among these 20 winners, we will select 1 person with the most outstanding image. This person will receive the “RICOH  THETA V”, a high-end model camera that went on sale recently, as their prize. We can’t wait to see your submissions.

Also, from among the 20 outstanding images during this contest, we will create a new animation category separated from the conventional cropped image and select outstanding work from the animation work as well.

We look forward to seeing your 360ºanimation submissions that deliver the feelings of Halloween.
