On July 10, 2017, the results of the contest "Take a picture with the Leopard", implemented in the framework of the Environmental Information Campaign, were summed up. The contest was organized by WWF-Armenia. The winners were selected by the jury.

More than hundred photographs, which contained important and interesting information on the Caucasian Leopard, have participated in the competition. According to the results of the competition, the winner became Lusine Stepanyan, who was awarded the main prize, a mountain bike. David Hayrapetyan and Manana Hovakimyan took second and third places. The jury also highlighted the most creative participant, Argishti Mkrtchyan, who decided to play chess with a virtual leopard. 

The participants were able to get a three-dimensional animated picture of the leopard by scanning the marker with the picture of it through ARLOOPA app. The initiative was jointly implemented with ARLOOPA (X-Tech).
Company director Arman Atoyan mentions: "Over 10,000 scannings from around the world have been registered during the competition. The initiative also took part in the recent AR / VR exhibition in the United States, where a combination of nature protection and information technology has been of great interest. "

Arsen Gasparyan, the coordinator of WWF-Armenia’s Caucasian Leopard Conservation Project, notes: "This initiative is one of the modern versions of eco-education. Today, information technologies are an inseparable part of our lives, and that fact can be best served for the conservation of nature. "
