And here is your Nokia 710 Photo Contest Winner!

When we first drew up the idea of the Nokia Lumia 710 Photo Contest, two things slipped our minds. First, a little event called the 2012 Mobile World Congress. Second, the vast number of quality entries we would receive!

Between Mobile World Congress and life in general, it took a lot longer than expected to judge all the outstanding entries we received. The good news is that we've identified our winner. The bad news is that you'll need to hit the break to see who won and who is our runner-up.

First Prize goes to Glueharbour. Here is the description that was offered with this photo, taken with an HTC Trophy.  We've got the Lumia 710 boxed up and ready to send out to Glueharbour.

Picture taken at the beautiful Glueharbour Beach in southern Sweden where the ice between Sweden and Denmark is cracking up. It was foggy as hell that day, otherwise you would see Copenhagen from the bridge.

You can find Glueharbour's submission here in the WPCentral Forums.

Our Contest Runner-up is, DubiousPig, who will receive a $75 Gift Certificate to the WPCentral Accessory Store. Taken with a Samsung Omnia 7, DubiousPig submitted a photo of his adopted cat Tilly.

It was a tough contest to judge and everyone should be commended on the quality photographs that were submitted. The entries clearly demonstrates the potential our Windows Phone cameras have.  Again, thanks goes out to everyone who contributed to the contest.

    :-(

  • Congrats to both of them, but i am so depressed. been trying and trying to win a windows phone, twitter give aways, facebook give aways and all i get is my hopes crushed. damn youz hopes damn youz!
  • Congrats guy :)   great pics :)
     
  • I was going to enter, but I'm using a Dell Venue Pro. Everything looks like it was taken with a .1 megapixel camera, at 2 am with no flash, and at 85 mph.
  • When I open the battery compartment, I expect to see the bird from the Flintstones with a slab of granite and a chisel....
  • LOL! I feel your pain sir...i feel your pain!
  • lmao, as an avid Venue Pro user, I whole heartedly agree. The VP's camera is one of the worst I have ever used.
  • if you would have read the rules you would know why it looks like its 2am no flash!
  • Reread my post. In no way am I knocking the winning photo or its owner. I am knocking the picture taking ability of my Dell Venue Not-So-Pro. It takes horrid pictures. Unless you are at high sun on a 95 degree day, it has major lighting issues. It blurs every subject. It is just not a good camera, by any means.
  • Congrats, nice shots!
  • Great pics,,,, you guys didn't like the pictures of my guitar in front of my metro style china display?? I though it was cool.. Lol.
  • Darn I thought I had a pretty good chance with that picture of the eye.
  • Grats to the two photo takers......
  • Congrats to the winners
  • Yeah trophy! Haha. I actually agree my trophy takes great pics. Image stabilization isn't great but still pics come out nice
  • Come on! The giveaways are oportunities for the people to also catch up with the tecnology, it's obviously that an HTC Titan will take better pictures compared to an HD7, Focus, Dell Venue Pro, LG Optimus 7 and I like the cat's picture more than the other one 
     
  • The trophy is a first gen device
  • What? The second picture sucked. It's just a cat.
