The grand mobile phone photo competition – deadline extended to Friday 13th July

Ok guys, on the spur of the moment I have decided to hold a photography competition – open to anyone who cares to enter. There are only a few rules:

  1. You have to email me a max of 3 photos to tref at trefor.net
  2. I chose a shortlist – max 10 photos (say)
  3. I’ll come up with a polling mechanism/widget that allows blog readers to vote for their favourite
  4. If we can get enough entries by Friday 1pmΒ Entries due by close of play Friday 13th July.

I’ll see what I can come up with re prizes – say 1st, 2nd, 3rd. The photos can be of any subject matter – it’s up to you. You decide how arty etc. Even I can enter as it is going to be a crowd based judging.

By request I’ve added a second category to accommodate people who want to supply edited shots (instagram etc)

If anyone can suggest a suitable polling widget please let me know.

Good luck & happy snapping.

PS don’t forget to tell me what phone you used. I’ve had a few requests to extend the deadline – this is reasonable – it was done on the spur of the moment Β – I’ve extended it a week to Friday 13th & judging will take place over the following week with the result decided at 1pm on the 20th.

PPS please tweet

  1. Hi Tref, I’ll give it a go πŸ™‚ I assume you don’t mind when I took the photo, but it has to be straight from the camera (no tweaking)?

  2. I’d say do a category for edited shots – it’s so easy to tweak them with Instagram and Camera+ and they’re still mobile-based apps.

  3. Will be interesting to see which type of phone dominates proceedings. Perhaps I should enter to represent team Blackberry… maybe RIM *can* succeed at something this year! (although judging by my umpteen photos of cats and not a lot else, I think it’d be a long shot πŸ˜‰ )

  4. took these whilst with our year 9 students at the back of our school, we were trying to show them they didnt need professional equipment to take some great photos. Thy all had digital cameras, this was however taken with my Samsung Galaxy S3 zoomed in all the way and very close to the insects!!!!!

  5. they are pretty cool. il have to turn up the quality size to match them! il have a look see if i can get some rose ones in the next few days for you.
