UFA, April 8. /TASS/. A girl student from Ufa, capital of Russia's Bashkiria republic, is the proud owner of a sought-after, professional-quality action camera following a competition win based on JRR Tolkien's Hobbit adventures.
Third-year arts and graphics faculty student Regina Valliulina won it for creating the best fan poster celebrating the smash-hit screen production Hobbit "Battle of the Five Armies".
The film was released in December, last in a Tolkien trilogy and netting $955 million worldwide.
Valliulina received the GoPro award from Peter Jackson, director of The Hobbit and Lord of the Rings trilogies, head of the Ufa university's fine arts department Artur Khairullin said on Wednesday.
"Peter Jackson headed the jury and chose the winner from thousands of participants across the globe," Khairullin said.
Regina's composition features Hobbit Bilbo Baggins looking towards his home in the Shire, a region of Tolkien's fictional Middle-earth.
The young artist depicted Mordor, the Middle-earth region controlled by Dark Lord Sauron, as part of a poster themed to symbolise "the film's happy ending and the main character's return home".
