To celebrate the release of ‘I Am Number Four’ on Blu-ray and DVD, Nikon have teamed up with Dreamworks Studios to bring you our latest photography assignment, Superheroes.

‘I Am Number Four’ follows the life of John Smith, a teen who has to mask his identity and pass as a typical high school student to elude a deadly enemy seeking to destroy him. That is, until John realises the strength of his superpowers and comes face to face with the evil enemy he’s been on the run from.

For this assignment we want you to upload your best ‘superhero’ moment – maybe it’s you wearing a great costume or busting out a superpower move. With a total prize value of over $1,800, you don’t want to miss out! Enter for your chance to win the following prize packs:
