    Edit: We're loving the reception and all the amazing submissions that we've gotten thus far, so we're going to extend this contest to 4/30!

    Hey all!!

    Next week is Earth Day, so to celebrate, and help raise awareness of this topic, we are re-hosting one of the most engaging and rewarding contests we done here; The Creative Wallpaper Contest. This will be the start of many activities that will be hosted over the course of the next week in celebration of Earth Day. Be on the lookout for more exciting things in the not-so-distant future!

    Same simple idea as last time, with one teensy difference.

    Our theme this year is NATURE. We believe the one thing that pieces together our great flagship displays and our burdenless hardware designs are the unique wallpapers that reside on your home and lock screens. They represent your character, your interests, and your perspective of the world. And with our focus on a nature-based CMF (Color - Material - Finish) design for the OnePlus 9 Series, for this creative wallpaper contest, we’re wanting to see your best shots of nature to accommodate these finishes.

    Contest Period:
    • April 16th to April 30th 11:59PM PDT
    Steps:

    1. Imagine you’re taking a picture to accommodate one of the OnePlus 9 Series colors. The picture has to be an original uncropped photo (compose your shot to allow for cropping by us for the final product) of anything based on nature that epitomizes the color-ways.
      • For example, it can be an image of the mist rising off of a lake to reflect the Morning Mist finish of the OnePlus 9 Pro. Or, an image of the bright, blue sky for the Arctic Sky finish of the OnePlus 9.
    2. The picture must be taken with a smartphone.
    3. Submit up to 3 pictures picture in this thread. All submissions outside of this thread will not be counted. (We will reach out to winners for original pictures)
      • Submissions must be taken within this year (from Jan 1st 2021)

    That's it. One simple and easy task. If you’re up to the challenge, you may just find yourself winning one of our prizes, such as a OnePlus 9 Series device.

    Prizes:
    • Top prize: A OnePlus 9 Series device (Worth up to $1,100), depending on your selected design.
    • Runner-up #1: A OnePlus Watch
    • Runner-up #2-5: A OnePlus Backpack
    • As a token for your submission, all participants will be entered into a raffle in which we will select 5 to win some OnePlus swag.

    *Disclaimer: Choice of winning design is subject to OnePlus’ sole discretion. OnePlus maintains the right to retract prizes or substitute with an item of equal value. Terms and Conditions and OnePlus’s Privacy Policy apply. (Winner must be in a location that we normally sell devices to.)

    Good luck everyone. I’m looking forward to seeing your amazing wallpapers!

    Thank you all for your patience. After going through 133 pages of photos one by one, we have arrived at what we feel are the best photos fit for the rules given!

    Here are the winners. (subject to verification that all photos are original and made on a mobile phone, more on that below)

    First off we selected the Grand prize winner of @Manishrnath98 with the following water picture. As they chose the color of "Winter Mist" we will be getting a OnePlus 9 (Winter Mist) sent out to you shortly!

    The runner-up was @TibiTibi with his closeup photo on the 8t of pine needles. Congrats on the new OnePlus Watch!

    The winners of the Backpacks (in no particular order) are:

    @dom_k with his starry scene

    @Thenickclicks with his majestic and eerie green street scene
    [​IMG]

    @MarcKend with his snowy pine picture.

    The 5 random winners were pulled from this list below that was created with Random.org, with the intention that as long as they had pics on that post number they would be the random winner. If that specific post did not have a picture, we’d move to the next random number.
    All 5 first numbers had photos, so they are the ones that won.

    Sounds like fun on a bun @Adam Krisko, I'm sure you'll get many keen participants. Just one thing, I might've missed it, but I can't clearly see if anyone can enter as often as they want, or just submit one entry only? Would entering more times increase their chances in the random draw, or is each user just counted once for that?
