Phonebox Lumia

Nokia has kicked off 2013 with a new challenge where two selected winners will bag a pair of Purity HD headphones by Monster. Sounds tempting, right? All that's required is for owners of new Lumia Windows Phones to match the colour of their device with an object or surrounding and snap a photo. They emphasise the cooler, more out there, the better. A few examples were provided by the team to get the idea engine started (see above).

Once a photo has been taken and is ready to go, simply comment on the main article with the file (link below) or fire it up into the Twittersphere with the #NokiaLumiaChallenge hashtag for judges to see. Entries will be selected based on how imaginative, inventive and random you've been on finding the most effective match for the Lumia Windows Phone. Photos that make the judges jump up with excitement will have the best chance in making it through, so be sure to get those thinking caps on.

With the array of colours available, particularly in cases and shells for the likes of the new Lumia 820, it should be pretty easy locating the perfect spot for the Windows Phone for it to turn itself into a temporary model. Don't forget to make use of on-screen real estate too. Arrange those tiles, show off the accent colours and enable those Live Tiles to display everything that's personally connected to you.

As with any competition there are terms and conditions that are present and should be read before entering. No Photoshop or post-editing apps are allowed, folks and you have to be either 16 or older. The contest will close on Thursday 8th February 2013, more than enough time to make use of the British weather for those white Lumia handsets that are out there.
