Weekly Photo Contest: Animals

Keeping things lively this week with your best pictures of animals

We're ready to jump into another weekly photo contest, and give away some great prizes to the best photographers that enter. This week we're going away from abstract topic prompts to go a little narrower – this week our prompt is "animals." Whether it's your faithful companion dog, a lion at a zoo or a painting of a dragon, we want to see what you can do with this week's topic.

We'll be picking out three winners this week, and each will receive a Pebble smartwatch to connect to their phone.

Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a forums post at the link below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (October 22) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with next Wednesday's contest.

Enter this week's photo contest

  • Pictures must be taken with an Android device
  • Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
  • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine — this is art.
  • You must have used a valid email address to register here at AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
  • Only one entry per week per person.

Good luck, everyone!

Sadly the Android Central Forum app is denying permission to post photo suggesting I contact administrator. In an attempt to remedy the flaw, I uninstalled and reinstalled the AC Forum app to no avail.

Later I'll inconveniently dust off my Windows laptop, boot it, let it update, transfer my photo from Android smartphone to Windows PC and attempt to post my entry NOT using the convenience of my Android device logged into the Android Central Forum app.

Well, I came online to do something, then saw this, then checked out the thread of entries, and quite a while later, I forget what I was even doing online. All I know is people have a lot of cute pets.

Damn you, Android Central! Damn you to hell! lol

Unable to post photos from my S3 :( sad times!
Just realised this has ended! Oops

Are there certain rules I'm not following to "display" a photo in Android Central Forum (Tapatalk) in addition to the link only like hundreds can accomplish yet a few of us cannot. This question as been ask by several, yet no authoritative response has been provided.

Seems as though "happyhooe", as shown below, has no trouble displaying a photo in this thread. How is this accomplished?

I had the same problem. Resize your photo.

I think sending the photo to yourself in messaging MMS, then download to gallery may be a method of automatically resizing your photo.
