Windows Central photo contest: Water

The photo contest is back, and we've changed things up once again. We took a week off last week with it being the Easter holiday weekend for many of us on the Mobile Nations team. But now we're going to change it up again and we're giving more people more time to enter. The contests will now each run for two weeks, and we're going to try out some new prizes along with it.

You'll find all of the relevant information below. But onto this weeks topic, Water. Something commonplace in life, yet that still lends to taking many different styles of shot. The one up top is a quick sample I took this past weekend with the Lumia 640 XL on a gloomy afternoon. But you guys will certainly do better.

So, to the rules and a little housekeeping, announcing the winner of the last weekly photo contest!

Weekly photo contest winner: Filters - Future Fossil

Another tough week to choose from but this sunrise from Future Fossil really caught our eye shot on a Lumia 928. Congrats!

Rules for this week's contest

Rules are going to be just like every 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!


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
  • #WaterWC

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!


We're changing up the prizes a little bit from now on. This weeks winner will get an LG Tone Pro headset courtesy of the Windows Central Store. Find out more about it here{.nofollow}

We'll pick a winner next Saturday night (April 25) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the contest next week.

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!
