Weekly Photo Contest: Panorama

Expand your horizons with panoramic shots this week

Last week we went with a pretty loose topic, "time," and got some really interesting contest entries. Keeping in that theme of letting you expand your creative horizons, we're going with an even broader guide this week — "panorama." Android has included the ability to take panoramas natively since Android 4.0, and manufacturers and third-party apps were doing it long before then as well.

This week we're giving away another phone to a lucky winner — an unlocked dual-SIM BLU Life View.

If your phone doesn't support taking panorama pictures in the native camera app, take a look at a few of the highly-rated third-party offerings in the Play Store:

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 15) 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!

Slightly disappointed that it has to be taken with an android phone. I have a rather nice picture of the cumberland gap, but that was taken with a real camera. Sad.

This is *Android* Central, after all :P

I was wondering the same thing actually.

Curious as to why I can't upload anything to the thread from my phone. Am I missing something?

You have to open in browser and request desktop site but be warned it may put your photograph the wrong way up when you insert it so you might need to edit on a computer...

So, am I missing something? How do you attach a picture to a post. I have tried drag and drop, right clicking, copy and paste, etc. I am relatively savvy with technology. What in the world am I missing? I am sure it is staring me straight in the eyes...help.

I am the idiot. It was staring me straight in the face. Ugh.
