An amateur photographer from the Isle of Wight was all smiles after bagging himself a state-of-the-art camera bundle and cash prize worth more than £21,000 courtesy of online competition firm BOTB.

Jason Moore couldn’t believe his luck after finding out he had won a stunning new Nikon Z9 camera along with a £10,000 cash prize.

The impressive £11,000 camera bundle includes a Nikon NIKKOR Z 180-600mm f5.6-6.3 lens, Nikon EN-EL18D 10.8V 3300mAh rechargeable lithium-ion battery, Nikon MH-33 battery charger, ULBTER screen protector, memory cards and small Rig Z9 case.

The Midweek Lifestyle Competition winner said:

“It feels unbelievable to have won, the Nikon Z9 is a great bit of kit and when I saw it come up as a prize I thought I would take a punt and here I am feeling very lucky.

“I studied photography at university and it remains a keen hobby of mine, especially wildlife and landscape photography.

“I’ve currently got a Canon Mark IV which is still pretty good, but technology has moved on a lot.”

Jason, who works in the aerospace industry, said he was considering taking the cash alternative to support his young family.

“Me and my partner have got a 10-month-old daughter and the cash would come in very handy, I think my partner was spending the money even before I got off the phone.”

The 31-year-old received a video call from BOTB presenter Christian Williams – who is also from the Isle of Wight – who surprised him with the exciting news.

Christian said:

“A huge congratulations to Jason on winning this unbelievable prize.

How does that “show” that exactly? And even if it does that’s how the world works – maybe you’d be better off making sure you “know” the right people rather than spouting your bitterness on here?

Looks like a great idea until you realise it is a spot the ball competition. You have to place the centre of the ball within 2 pixels to be judged correct. The centre of the ball is not the actual centre but instead it is decided by a “panel of experts” in case someone has seen the original picture. Hmm … you might as well bet on the lottery.

Point I made against Mr Robot was that it is not a fix. Pixels choice will define the winner yes, but it is nothing to do with who you know xx
