Windows Central photo contest: Sunshine

Since I've spent the past week baking in the sunshine what better theme for the latest photo contest than that. It's something that we all get to see (sometimes, at least) and can lend itself to take some stunning photos in the right place at the right time of day. You'll no doubts do better than I did, but the shot above was captured at Silverstone as the sun began to drop over the pitlane.

So, that's the theme. Read on for the rules and regulations!

As with the last contest, we're splitting up announcing winners and setting up a new contest. The three winners from the previous contest, gaming, will be announced in a separate post tomorrow.

Oh, and we've got a great prize in store this week!

So, here's the run down for this week!

Rules for this week's contest

Rules are going to be as follows:

  • Picture should be taken on a Windows Phone
  • Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below)
  • Tell us what apps, phone, and anything else you used to create your image
  • 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 we 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!


We've got a great prize for the winner this week. Up for grabs is a GoPro Hero (the one above.) While this model doesn't connect to your Windows Phone (or any other smartphone for that matter) it's a fantastic action camera with a ton of accessories available to make it a true go anywhere camera.

We'll pick a winner Saturday night (July 18) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post following the contest and after that we'll contact the lucky person to arrange shipping the prize.

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!
