Contests

It shouldn't be a secret that Nokia likes to hold photo contests from time to time to showcase the cameras on the Lumia line of Windows Phones. The latest Nokia Lumia Photo Challenge dared readers to capture adventures at night with their Lumia Windows Phone.

The winner was announced over on Twitter and we would like to extend our congratulations to Windows Phone Central reader aaa6112 for his photo of the Scripps Pier in San Diego. The above photo was captured with his Lumia 920 and the prize for this wall hanger of a photo, a new Lumia 720.

Not sure what the next Nokia Lumia Photo Challenge will be but we'll keep an eye out for it and let you know.

Just a quick reminder, if you're in the United Kingdom and are interested in winning a Nokia Lumia 820, you only have a few more hours to enter the Expansys/Windows Phone Central giveaway.

We have gotten our hands on (courtesy of Expansys) a red Lumia 820, a wireless charging pillow, and a set of Bluetooth Monster headphones to give away.

All you need to do to enter is:

  1. Live in the United Kingdom
  2. be a registered WPCentral.com member, which you can do here.
  3. post in the comments below what local app you'd like to see come to the Windows Phone Store.  It could be a UK banking app, retailer app, or anything that would make life more covenant in your neck of the woods.

We'll shut things down at midnight on Thursday, May 9th and randomly draw one winner shortly there after. Again, you need to be a UK resident to qualify.  Good luck everyone!

Seeing as how we don’t have a new Xbox Windows Phone release to talk about this week, it’s a perfect time for some Xbox 360 discussion. Zombie Driver HD - one of my personal favorite XBLA games of 2012 is on sale to Xbox Live Gold members for only 400 MS Points/$5 this week. It regularly sells for 800 Points, which is already a fair deal given the trend towards pricing XBLA titles at 1200.

To celebrate the sale, we’ve got Zombie Driver HD gameplay impressions and an interview with the game’s developer. Oh, and did I mention we’re giving away Zombie Driver avatar clothing and props as well? Find out how to win one after the break!

Remember earlier this month Nokia announced a cardboard challenge where participants had to build a Windows Phone out of... well... cardboard. At stake, a Nokia Lumia 900 Windows Phone and Nokia 808 Pureview.

Nokia describes the turn out as impressive and we have to agree, the level of detail, accuracy and creativity is impressive.  Hard to imagine how much time it took with the hot glue gun and X-acto knife to create some of these cardboard Windows Phones.

We ran across a rather interesting contest from Nokia that tests your creative skills with cardboard for a chance to win either a Lumia 900 Windows Phone or 808 Pureview phone. Partnering with the Global Cardboard Challenge, Nokia is challenging you to create your own Nokia mobile phone from cardboard or make a photograph from cardboard.

Cardboard photographs can be recreations from photos you've taken or would like to take using cardboard cutouts.

Once you've created your cardboard masterpiece and snap a photograph of your creation. The contest's rules state no Photoshop or other image-enhancing software is permitted.

This Shoot1UP skin can be yours

Remember that picture of an LG Quantum wearing a Shoot 1UP skin that we included in our interview with Shoot 1UP developer Mommy’s Best Games over the weekend? Of course you do, because you’re cool like that. And if you also happen to be inquisitive, you might’ve wondered how you could get a skin like that for your own phone.

As it turns out, Mommy’s Best Games is giving away three of the skins in question in a contest that runs throughout the week. The skin you win doesn’t need to be for a Quantum, either – it can be any Windows Phone (or even *blech* non-Windows Phones). Head past the break for more details!
