Samsung held an Instagram photography contest called “Live In The Moment”. Passing it off as his own an Instagram user by the name of bodghan submitted a photo by renowned photographer Hengki Koentjoro. The Instagram user simply flipped the image and added a preset filter to it. Luckily, one of Koentjoro’s friends discovered the fraud and notified him before the thief could claim his prize, a $500 Samsung NX300 digital camera.
Koentjoro is quoted as saying, “Let’s warn other photographers to be careful with their work.” Samsung has since taken all photos down, disqualified Instagram user bodghan, and issued an apology to Koentjoro. Some feel that this isn’t enough. What do you think?
