Weekly Photo Contest: Blue

Following the emphatic response we saw to our previous photo contest, yellow, we're going to go ahead with another color-based theme this week with "blue." Whether it's the water down at your local lake, some colorful fruit at a market or maybe a nice car you see on the street, we're sure there will be more options to take this week's picture than you can shake a stick at

For their entries this week, we'll be giving away a Samsung 3100mAh Portable Battery Pack to two winners of this contest.

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 (June 17) 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.
  • 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 AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
  • Only one entry per week per person.

Good luck, everyone!

Does the editing software also have to be an Android app?

You running version 1.5.4? You should see a paperclip once you click on the reply button within the thread itself. The ability to add pics is relatively new to the beta.

Keep in mind you do it in the forum post and not in this articles comment section.

I keep trying to upload via the app in the forums, but I keep getting a "failed to upload" message. This is the first time I've tried adding a photo so is that common?

Many people have posted they cannot upload photos and no or very little attempt has been made to address questions and issues.

I believe there is a resolution size limit. Reduce the resolution (number of pixels) of your photo and then attempt to post.

And I believe one cannot attach a photo to the forum within the mobile site. Crazy as it seems, I have to use my PC to attach a photo.

When hundreds of people successfully attach photos it can be frustrating to not receive complete information. Makes you kinda feel bad. I'm sure many people don't bother to post as a result.

Thank you for letting me know and the info. I will give that a try.

Please let us know what you tried and if it works.

I have never managed to upload from my phone. And I have tons of problems with uploading from the desktop site, too. What I usually end up doing is uploading the photo to G+, copying the URL and then attaching it to the forum thread via URL. It's cumbersome, but it works.

Problem with the link method is it is in contradiction with bullet point (rule) #2 as follows:

• Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
