Weekly Photo Contest: Family

Get your family in front of the camera this holiday weekend

For those of you in the U.S., Thanksgiving week is the time when you're likely to spend some time with the closest family and friends you have. And for those of you outside of the states, we can venture that you'll be spending some time with family this week as well. For this reason this week's photo contest prompt is "family," and we can't wait to see how you and your family are spending the holidays together this week.

We'll have two winners this week, and they'll each receive an Incipio FIXIE Universal Tablet Stand (it works for phones too!)

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 (December 3) 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!

That's a really ignorant and arrogant statement to assume about something. Why bring race into anything? Get over yourself.

I love it when your people get get all combustible when they're excited. It's better than the 4th of July.

I'm just fine lol I was going to post an opinion but its the internet so it doesn't matter just like you don't.

In a nation where racism is used as a political tool, and is still a sensitive subject with some people, it's really not the right thing to joke about on a public forum where digital communication can be easily mis-read.

Have a great Thanksgiving!

Kind of creepy. What are you going to do with the pictures, give them to the government or something? Knowing what happens to the photos would be a nice addition, after all people who submit the pictures will be showing their faces and the faces of their loved ones, and since not everyone is going to win, what's happens to the pictures of the loser? How exactly are you going to decide the winner? By most beautiful family or something?

Considering you're publishing the pictures in a public forum, you can probably ask yourself whether or not you're comfortable having them up on the internet in that fashion in the first place.

We look at the submissions and pick a winner (or two in this contest) based on what we think is the best. It's a photo contest, it's subjective.

I think it's cool but I'll pass but good luck to the winners.

No, you haven't. That picture wasn't taken with a smartphone. And even if I had left the location settings on back in 2005, (had I used a smartphone instead of my huge Sony Digital) I have since moved so feel free to stalk the imaginary place you might think I live at now.

I will get the tin foil hat ready

So where is the competition for the Note 3? Oh right there isn't any...

Ok. Its fixed. Phil has already put up the picture of the cutest family ( notice he wasn't in it).

I love people who use these forums to promote their own paranoia ... it's Thanksgiving (I'm in the US, obviously) - can we all get along and be grateful for these contests for just one day? Good grief!
