The weekly photo contest is back with a new theme and a new week to show off your best work. This time around we're asking to see your best efforts with filters. Those weird and wonderful effects that helped make Instagram so popular can be a great way to simply and effectively make your photos take on a whole new life.

Like the shot up top. I took this relatively pleasant, if somewhat uninteresting scene while catching 5 minutes after a press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, Spain. But with a little goofing around in Camera 360 Sight it became (or so I think, at least) something worth keeping.


Rules are going to be just like last week. Here they are:

- Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
- Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread (linked below)
- You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software or apps 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 Windows Central, so I know how to contact the winner
- Only ONE entry per week per person

We've got a handy guide for that!

We're going to continue our social sharing of entries. Share any pictures you take for the contest on Instagram, Twitter and Fhotoroom using the following hashtags. It's a fun way to at a glance check out your competition and get inspiration. Plus we're building a community of Windows Phone mobile photographers!

Here's how it looks this week.

- #WCpc
- #FiltersWC

This doesn't count as your entry; it's just a fun way to track the photos on social media. Your entry still needs to be in the forums!


One winner will get a $25 gift card to the Windows Phone Store. You can use it to buy apps and games in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox Store.

We'll pick a winner Saturday night (March 28) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the next contest

I took this one with my Lumia 820 using lumia refocus first, then adding a filter with photoshop express, I like playing with the camera a lot, but I don't think there's anything special, just a few decorations from my living room, a small stone and that's pretty much it

Took the picture using Lumia Camera from my Lumia 625
Found this flower on the side of the road...
Hard to imagine something like this could become beautiful when it did not grow up in a garden.
Added some filters which looked soothing to the eye....
I used the "Create A Perfect Selfie" app..
It has tons of filters which i like...

Still haven't received my 25 dollar gift card after winning the trees contest. I've sent them several emails, nothing has happened.

Isn't that awesome?
