ASUS announced the launch of 100 Days of Zen – a 100 day long creative initiative led by Instagram sensation Robert Jahns (Nois7). Inspired by Robert’s work and showcasing the incredible photography capabilities of the ZenFone 2, the worldwide initiative encourages everyday artists to create and share an incredible image of their own, based on a series of photos taken on the ZenFone 2. Over the course of initiatives, 100 winners will be announced. A winner will be announced every day for 99 days and Robert will personally pick his favorite as the grand prize winner, who will be invited to join him in a special location to collaborate on a composition as part of the See What Others Can’t See Photo Series.
“Many images I create are built on 2 important elements: collaboration and inspiration. Collaborations are at the heart of my work. And with each piece I create, I’m aiming to make people smile and to inspire them with something that’s incredible, beautiful and new,” says Robert.
“A lot of my work is done on a smartphone – including shooting, editing and creating. I’ve been using the ZenFone 2 professionally for a few months now. With 100 Days of Zen, I’m inviting people from all corners of the world to be inspired by the photos I’ve taken on the ZenFone 2 and to get creative making an incredible image. You can imagine anything with the technology that’s in your reach – just get started.”
