Windows Phone Central Halloween Contest 2013: Share your photos with #TrickOrWP and win!
With Halloween falling on a Thursday this year, we know a lot of you will be out this weekend in costume getting your party on. Odds are you'll be carrying a phone in your pocket too. Heck, some of you will probably even be dressed up as a phone or tablet.
We had a great time with our Halloween Contest the last several years, and we can't wait to see how you guys top it this year! While you're out getting spooky, be sure to snap a photo with your Windows phone (you can include other mobile gadgets to, but you know... we love Windows best). Then tweet or instagram it using hash tag #TrickOrWP, or email us your photos. We'll put together all the photos received into a sweet video for the blogs. And beyond that, you can win some awesome prizes for taking part. Full details below!
What You Need to Do
When you're out at Halloween parties this weekend or out trick or treating on Thursday, be sure to take some Halloween pictures. Be scary, funny or do a crazy pose. Whatever you want is cool. Have fun with it. However, we need to see your phone or tablet in the picture. For brownie points, load up WPCentral.com in the web browser or throw a Windows Phone Central wallpaper on. Group photos with friends, family, and co-workers are more than welcome too.
Submit Your Photo
With your photo taken, all you need to do is email it in to email@example.com by noon PST next Friday, November 1st (the earlier the better though!). If you prefer to share via Twitter or Instagram, you can do that too with the hash tag #TrickOrWP. Be sure to use that and tag us so can find your photos!
When sending in entries via email, it would be super helpful if you renamed your photos with your Mobile Nations username. Also, if you would like to include a caption or any other information about your picture, be sure to do that. Each site has a fantastic prize to give away at the end, plus we'll do runner up prizes, because we love you.
How and What You'll Win
Come November 1st we'll go through all the photos and pick out a bunch of winners in a variety of categories - scariest photo, funniest photo, sexiest costume, best group photo, best family or theme, and more! We'll put all the winners and other photos received into a video collage and post it up on the blogs. Like this:
As for the prizes? Well... it's Halloween - which means you might get a treat, or this could all be just a nasty trick. But you know us... we like treats. We're going to keep the treats a surprise for now, so take your photo this Halloween, email it in or share on Twitter/Instagram with #TrickOrWP, and stay tuned.
From all of us at Windows Phone Central and the Mobile Nations team, have a safe and Happy Halloween!!
