    Lets get out and shoot more. I thought it would be fun if we had a weekly photo contest here on the site. How about every Wednesday well pick a theme, and you have until next Tuesday to go out and use your Windows Phone to capture the image. Our first theme? Lets do sunrise.

    I thought capturing a sunrise would be a nice way to start. This is after all the dawn of a new weekly series. Get it? Dawn? Sunrise?

    Well tweak the format as we go forward, but for now its pretty simple. Take a photo of sunrise. You dont have to point your Windows Phone directly at the rising sun. You can if you want, but feel free to get creative with the theme sunrise. Maybe its the light falling onto your coffee first thing in the morning. Maybe its the reflection of dew on a blade of grass. Maybe you literally point your camera at the sun. Doesn't matter as long as it feels like sunrise.'


    • Picture must be taken with a Windows Phone
    • Picture must be uploaded to the contest thread.
    • 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 Phone Central, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per week per person.


    This week well give you two $25 gift cards for your Microsoft account. Apply that cash to your Microsoft account, and you can use it towards an app or game in the Windows Phone Store, Windows Store or Xbox store.

    Well pick a winner Tuesday night (August 5) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in the blog post for the contest next week.

    Reserved to drop a photo in here once I go out and shoot this weekend.

    Edit: My *** has been lazy and I didn't wake up to see the sunrise this week lol. I'll do better! But hey. My job is just to make sure this contest is humming ;)

    I took my son on a trip to St. Louis for a Cub Scouts outing at the City Museum. we left real early in the Morning from Indianapolis. We wanted to visit the Arch before meeting up with the other Cub Scouts. I shot the picture using my Lumia 920 using Nokia Camera. I was standing facing South while looking straight up from what I could visualize as the middle of the Arch as much as I Could.
