Now that the spring has arrived Nintendo is going to be starting a 3D photo contest for 3D pictures taken with their 3DS portable gaming console in Europe. There is already a dedicated competition website online, although the full details about how to participate will be available on April 2nd. Meanwhile Nintendo has revealed just a few things like the fact that the competition will be running for three months and that there are going to be six photo categories for the 3D photos you will need to take. The categories will be Animals, People, Places, Objects, Plants and Augmented Reality, which should give you plenty of scope for creativity. And creativity would be required in order to do something really impressive considering that the built-in 3D camera of the Nintendo 3DS is with a quite low resolution. Still this contest seems like a good way to promote the 3D capabilities of the 3DS console and the portable console itself, so anyone with a Nintendo 3DS here interested in joining the 3D photo contest?
