Photo of Jay Montano and 4 Nokia Lumia 1020's taken by Ms. Jen with her Nokia 808 PureView at Nokia House, Espoo, Finland.
1. Let's start with Nokia US's #Discover Lumia Photo Contest that has a new theme every two weeks, you, as in a US resident, submit a photo that you have taken that is within the theme parameters, photos get voted on, and then the winner of each theme wins a Nokia Lumia phone! There will be / is 9 themes over the course of the summer and lots of great themes to take photos of - get your camera phones out and start taking photos!
2. Nokia Connects has just started a global creativity and connecting project called Nokia Connects MVC, wherein you submit your creative adventure idea or something you have done with your Nokia Lumia mobile or how you have connected folks to a Lumia, and each month Nokia Connects will pick a new MVC and help you build on your ideas / adventures / connections.
3. Do you have a great idea for a camera / video / imaging app for the Nokia Lumia 1020 and want to see it in the Windows Phone App Store? Then submit your idea to the Nokia Future /Capture Contest before Wed. July 31, 2013. That is two days from now. Get to submitting, even if you are not a mobile developer, if you are chosen they will pair you with a developer and fly you to Lund, Sweden for the Nokia Future/Capture hackathon.
Click on the links for each contest / event and participate in at least one, let this be the summer to let your best creative mobile self out!
The disclosure bit: I am a judge in the first two contests, #Discover Lumia and the Nokia Connects MVC; and I will be submitting one of my image app ideas* to the Nokia Future / Capture Contest.
* This phrase should make my closest friends laugh/giggle, as they know that my computer is a rabbit warren of overly breeding mobile apps in various stages of completion from ideation to testing the last bits.
