    Happy holidays! This is the time of year when holidays like Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, New Years and others are occur within really close to one another. So that's probably why we're going to make 'holidays' be our theme for the weekly photo contest. Head out and capture something festive!


    Feel free to capture a picture that best represents the holidays to you. Candy canes, dreidels, kentes and more are all in play for the contest this week!
    The photo above was captured by yours truly on my Lumia 1520. It's of a Christmas tree and some ornaments near my local town square. Just some slight tweaks inside Photoshop Express for Windows Phone.


    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

    How to use Tapatalk to post images in the Windows Central forums


    We're going to continue our social experiment from last week. 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
    • #HolidaysWC

    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 Tuesday night (December 23) at 11:59 PM ET. Winners will be announced in a blog post for the contest next week.

    Good luck and have fun!

    If I win I'll buy the Wolfram Alpha app which would help me a lot with my studies (I use it a LOT in the browser), as I plan to come back to Windows Phone next year :D

    Love seeing what photos you come up with, guys

    I took this photo just for fun. I was experimenting with the Lumia Camera and came up with this.

    Very wintery decorations. I chose this photo because simply looking at it brings back warm memories of the holidays. It was actually one of the first photos I ever took with the phone.

    Plus, it was a lot of fun to edit with all the shadows and dramatic lighting.

    Last Christmas, it snowed a ton on one day only and it covered our lights. I simply thought they looked cool.

    Hi everyone,

    Here is my entry in Christmas Photo Contest:

    This photo was taken 2 days ago with my Lumia 920 (Sight + some default filter), none additional software used.

    Those are freshly baked ginger-cookies. It was our (me & my Wife) first attempt to make them using my old family recipe that my Mom always used.
    The looks of them and the incredible aroma always remind me of my childhood.
    It was a lot of work but also a great fun! :)

    P.S. The photo is great for a Christmas-tuned lock screen. :)

    Wire lights on wooden table! The wire is supposed to make the lights easy to handle and apparently can be wrapped around any object because they bend to shape - the reality is entirely different, they have a mind of their own.Thankfully, the batteries last forever. Taken with a Lumia 925, minimal editing using Creative Studio.
