Android Central's No Tricks, Just Treats Halloween Contest!
HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!! We have had a fantastic time with our Halloween Contest the last several years, and we can't wait to see how you guys top it this year! While you're out getting spooky, be sure to snap a photo with your Android device (you can include other mobile gadgets too, but you know... we love Android best). Then Instagram it using hashtag #LloydOWeen. We'll put together all the photos received into a sweet video for the blogs. And beyond that, you can win some awesome prizes for taking part. Full details below!
What You Need to Do
When you're out at Halloween parties or Trick-or-Treating on Friday, be sure to take some pictures. Be scary, funny or do a crazy pose. Whatever you want is cool. Have fun with it. For brownie points, load up AndroidCentral.com in the web browser or throw on a Lloyd wallpaper and show your phone or tablet in the photo. Group photos with friends, family, and co-workers are more than welcome too.
Submit Your Photo
With your photo taken, all you need to do is share it on Instagram with the hash tag #LloydOWeen. Be sure to use that and tag us so we can find your photos! It would be super helpful if you included your Mobile Nations username when you post it, so if you're a winner we can contact you easily. Also, if you would like to include a caption or any other information about your picture, be sure to do that. Each site has a fantastic prize to give away at the end, plus we'll do runner up prizes, because we love you.
IF for some reason you absolutely can't post to Instagram, or if your account is private, you can email your entry in to firstname.lastname@example.org. Include your Mobile Nations username and any other information you'd like to include.
The deadline for entry is Sunday, November 2nd at noon PST. Entries after that will not be included.
How and What You'll Win
Come November 2nd we'll go through all the photos and pick out a bunch of winners in a variety of categories - scariest photo, funniest photo, sexiest costume, best group photo, best family or theme, and more! We'll put all the winners and other photos received into a video collage and post it up on the blogs. Check out last year's winners here.
As for the prizes? Well... it's Halloween - which means you might get a treat, or this could all be just a nasty trick. But you know us... we like treats. We're going to keep the treats a surprise for now, so take your photo this Halloween, share it on Instagram with #LloydOween, and stay tuned.
From all of us at Android Central and the Mobile Nations team, have a safe and Happy Halloween!!
