The Prize

A replacement to the much-loved EOS 60D, the new 70D boasts some significant upgrades over its predecessor, including a new 20.2-megapixel APS-C CMOS sensor, a 19-point all cross-type AF System, 3in, 1040k-dot Vari-angle Clear View LCD II Touch Screen and an ultra-fast DIGIC 5+ processor.

What’s more, the Canon EOS 70D is the first DSLR in the world to feature Dual Pixel CMOS AF technology, designed for smooth, accurate autofocus when shooting full HD movies, as well as when using the camera’s Live View mode.

You can read more about the EOS 70D’s specs here another time. Now let us tell you how you can win one!

Who Can Win?

Anyone who is a Project1709 beta user. Whether you’ve been using it since the beginning or you’ve just uploaded your first photo, you are eligible.

Project1709 is unique because it’s the photo management service its users have helped make. Canon has provided feedback forms in every element of the platform, soliciting users’ questions and ideas, many of which the company has taken on board and used to refine its software.

Because of this outstanding support from the Project1709 community, Photoventure will ask Canon to pick one name from its list of Project1709 users. This person will win the Canon EOS 70D we are giving away!

So how do you become a user?

How To Enter

Entry couldn’t be simpler. If you’re already a Project1709 user, you don’t need to do anything.
