Some of the coolest photos and videos are born through serious maker ingenuity, and to celebrate that, we are launching the “Make: The Shot” Camera Challenge.

• Have you modified your sensor for infrared photography?

• Do you have your own 3D-avatar-generating camera array?

• Are you into balloon-mounted near-space photography?

• Do you shoot photos of extraterrestrial bodies using a homemade telescope adapter?

Nikon_125x125_jb1We want to see a shot of the most inventive creation you’ve made with your camera, and learn the steps you used to pull it off. MAKE readers will help select the top submissions, winning three Nikon camera kits — including a grand prize valued at $3600.

The contest runs from April 15th until 11:59pm PT on May 13th. We look forward to seeing your best shot, and hearing how you made it.
