Community Challenge 27: (2nd Annual) How good is your phone's camera? Show us for your chance to win!

Last October we enjoyed seeing all the photos in Community Challenge 15, It was so much fun, we’ve decided to make it an annual challenge!

The photos you submit help our Community provide an answer when members ask, “Which phone has a great camera?”

Submit your photos for your chance to win a $10 Amazon gift card!

  2. Keep it “rated G”, please. Moderation will be swift and final. The moderator is a prude.
  3. Submit only your own, original photos, and only photos that were not entered in Challenge 15.

Unlike last year’s photography challenge, this year we ended up with more prizes available than the number of entrants. :disappointed:

We had two categories with enough entries for a drawing:

  • Landscapes and scenery - bright sunlight
  • Landscapes and scenery - night photography

The remaining categories would be combined into a single drawing. There were 9 entries in those categories, so that would allow us only one additional drawing.

However, since we had more prizes planned than entries received, we’ll simplify this by awarding everyone who entered one $10 Amazon gift card. I’ll send your prizes privately by Community DM.

Thank you for sharing your outstanding photography skills here in our Community.
