    David S., Aug 22, 2014 :
    Bummed that summer is almost over? Reminiscing about all the good times in the past three months? We have just the thing to cheer you up: The Summer Shots Contest!


    We are inviting all OnePlus fans to share a photo from their summer holidays for a chance to win 1 of 10,000 invites. No, that’s not a typo - 10,000 invites. Excited now? But there’s more; 100 lucky fans will also receive a vintage Never Settle t-shirt in addition to an invite. So if you haven’t already, go out and snap a photo!

    Here’s how you enter:

    1. Post a photo taken this summer with hashtags #summershots and #oneplus on Instagram (or, alternatively, do any of the other social actions listed here)
    2. Sit back and check out entries from other OnePlus fans
    Rules & Information:
    1. The contest will be open for four days starting at on August 22nd at 6:00AM EST (11:00AM GMT) until August 25th at 6:00AM EST (11:00AM GMT)
    2. Pictures must be original and not heavily modified (check the FAQ below for more info)
    3. Winners will be selected randomly and contacted on August 27th
    1. I don’t have an Instagram account, how can I participate? A: You can perform any of the other actions listed on the site.
    2. I have cropped the original picture and adjusted a bit the brightness (or similar), can I upload it? A: Yes, small Instagram enhancements are allowed.
    3. I found a cool picture on a website, can I use it to participate in the contest? A: No, the pictures must be your original creations.
    4. I took a picture with a DSLR, can I participate? A: Yes, but the picture has to be either posted on Instagram or in the forum thread.
    5. I try to upload a picture to the forums but it says the file is too big, what can I do? A: Go to imgur.com or minus.com and upload the picture there, post a smaller version here and link to the original one .
    6. Why are you giving different entries for different actions? A: This contest is about sharing Summer pictures, that’s why we favor the actions related with sharing pictures.

    EDIT: The contest just ended. We are gonna be contacting the winners tomorrow!

    EDIT 2: Check your inbox: invites are starting to roll out now (be aware, it might take up to 5h until the last winner has received his/her invite).

    EDIT 3:
    Thanks for participating. 10,000 random winners received already their invites and we have just contacted the 100 t-shirt winners to ask them about their size. Congratulations!

    I didn't take vacations, I'm saving for the OnePlus One and I don't have any camera right now. I guess it was a bad idea after all.
