PCA 2013: @hiatullah becomes first Photo Pimp Off finalist

If there's one thing you see a lot of on Paradise Island, its people taking photos. That's probably because there are so many damn things to shoot, from marine life to the beach, and everything else in between.

All this week the PCA 10 Photo Pimp Off contest has been looking for your best shots on Instagram, and here's the first standout photo so far. It was taken by hiatullah, who opted for the classic water-with-palm-trees combo. As a nice bit of extra drama, she also took the shot from inside a cave. Good work. We like. And so does Team PokerStars Pro Eugene Katchalov. He's voted the photo as his pick of the day, making hiatullah our first official finalist.

She's on her way to winning a seat in a PCA side event worth $1K, and you could be too. Hiatullah has set the bar pretty high but we think the best is still yet to come. All you have to do is use a smartphone to take the best photos you can during your time at the PCA. After that, upload them to Instagram and post em with the hashtags #PCA10 and #PhotoPimpOff, while also mentioning @PokerStars. If your photo is even half as good as hiatullah's, you'll be in great shape for a chance at winning the tourney seat.

Team PokerStars Pro will be selecting their favourite entries everyday between now and January 11, with each chosen Instagrammer making it on to the final shortlist. One overall winner will then be chosen, and rewarded with the ticket to the $1K PCA side event, scheduled to run on January 13. It's there for the taking. All you have to do is aim and shoot.
