Weekly photo contest: Cars

After a brief hiatus thanks to events (and illness), the weekly photo contest is back and in its new weekend slot. We've decided to move it from a weekday when there's potentially a lot of news and other things going on to a more relaxed slot on a Sunday evening. Aside from a new day, nothing else is changing, so let's get to it!

This weeks contest is something close to my heart: cars. Along with tech, cars are my other major passion in life and recently I had the opportunity to finally visit the world famous Geneva Motor Show. Some 2 weeks later I'm still trawling through all the photos but it gave me some great inspiration for this weeks contest. The shot up top is from my Lumia 830, is completely unedited and is one of my favorites from the show.

But now it's over to you to get creative! But first, let's find out who won the last contest...

'Trees' winner: Tafsern

It's a real pleasure to look through the entries to our photo contests and picking winners is always hard. This entry from Tafsern really caught our eye though this week, it's a beautiful shot. It was taken on a Lumia 930 and edited with Camera360 Sight. Congratulations and keep an eye on your inbox!

Rules for this week's contest

Rules are going to be just like last week:

  • Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
  • Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below)
  • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software or apps you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine, this is art
  • Feel free to add a little back story, we want to know how the picture came to be
  • You must have used a valid email address to register here at Windows Central, so I know how to contact the winner
  • Only ONE entry per week per person

How to use Tapatalk to post images in the Windows Central forums

We've got a great walkthrough on how to do just that!

Social

Share any pictures you take for the contest on Instagram, Twitter and Fhotoroom using the following hashtags. It's a fun way to at a glance check out your competition and get inspiration. Plus we're building a community of Windows Phone mobile photographers!

Here's how it looks this week.

  • #WCpc
  • #CarsWC

This doesn't count as your entry; it's just a fun way to track the photos on social media. Your entry still needs to be in the forums!

Prize

One winner will get a $25 gift card to the Windows Phone Store. You can use it to buy apps and games in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox Store.

We'll pick a winner Saturday night (March 28) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the next contest

Quick PSA: We've set up dedicated sub-forum in the Windows Central forums to keep the photo contests in one location going forward. You should bookmark this page, so you never miss a contest.

Good luck and have fun!

  • Congrats Tafsern. that's a great shot.
  • Do motorcycles count?
  • Of course they do. Cars, motorcycles, trucks, buses, houses, chairs, tables, coffee, windows phones, they are all classified as cars!
  • Selfies count too, right!
  • U guys forgot trains and jets......
  • And bikes too :)
  • My favourite from the show (although arguably not the best photo):

  • From the first moment I saw your photo, I knew you were going to win. Honestly. It's well d we deserved. Congratulations
  • Gratz. Tafs i vei
  • Tis a shame when it comes to the pinnacle of cars an official F1 app is nowhere to be seen.   Windows phone the continual failure when it comes to high tech motorsports.   Oh well theres always a Nascar app to appeal to the rednecks with no idea.
  • Your rant has nothing to do with the Photo contest.
  • Wow.... well deserved win... that pick is amazing!
  • Good night guys
  • This I might enter..
  • Nice. I love cars so I'm doing this one for sure. I manage @ekciviclife on facebook and instagram. I have a ton of photo's of imports, and exotics that I've taken with my 521 and 925. Now I've got to decide if I want to use one of those, or take a new one of one of these Aston Martins, or Ferrari's in this area.
  • nice
  • I got a photo of the HERE car some months ago.
    Should I post that? Or the super duper cool camo big car took at around the same time? XD
  • Whichever sings best to your artistic soul...
