    Hello everyone!

    It’s been a while since we had some fun with #ShotonOnePlus on forums. It’s not fair when Instagram hogs the action all the time. After a long conversation with @Ron Bhuyan, our Social Media Ninja, we’re on for an awesome contest.

    We recently hyped up our Explorer Backpack to an extent where we had people falling for it.

    And we’re not done with it yet. Starting today, we’re introducing a forums-only photo contest with the theme of “Explore”.

    The theme is simple and holds a lot of scope for creativity. You can submit your photos in the comments below, or make a new thread and link it to us in the comments below. But just remember to follow the theme of “Explore” as much as possible.

    What’s the prize?: The top 20 entries get 20 Explorer Backpack Invite Codes. And the best submission wins the OnePlus Explorer Backpack.

    Last date to submit your photos: 12 PM on the 12th of December.
    We announce winners on the 14th of December.

    Note that on redeeming this invite code to make a purchase, you will also be getting a new invite code which you can share with your friends or other community members!

    This is also a reminder to our launch attendees: You should have received a new invite code for the Explorer Backpack once you’ve used the original invite code. This new code can also be shared.

    Best of luck to our participants!

    Start up your cameras and get exploring!

    "explore" hmmmm...
    AFAIK and I can make sense of it,
    they should probably be photos of things while you are out on an adventure or a vacation .......
    somewhere out of the comfort zone of your home!
    I hope the people creating threads and posting pictures, understand the term, analyse the picture and make sure the photo fits!
    rest assured,
    have a great time "exploring" peeps !
    nice stuff! thanks @Joel Jacob [e]1f60a[/e]

    So I shot these when I was "exploring"... ;)
    All are shot oneplus 5 and edited in Instagram... (I'm not a pro... :()



    Btw, that red shirt guy is not me... Because I was the photographer... Duh... :p
    Maybe I should provide a story to make it a proper exploration... ;)
    Let's try this...
    So one day, my friend and I were just visiting a place and we found out that there was a road and a jungle (it was confined by a compound wall tho...) just steps away from that place, so we went out at around 4~5 PM to explore, without knowing anything about that place... o_O
    It was something extraordinary, as that place, that narrow road, evening lights, and the fact that we both thought that we got lost...
    We were walking around the compound wall/fence and were no where near any buildings, but we could hear the sound of vehicles so we were sure that we were near some highway or road...
    I tried Google maps, but it was just pointing us in the middle of nowhere... :sweatsmile:
    We just decided that we could walk along the fence and it sure should end up directing us towards the main gates...
    But that turned out to take longer and it was already getting dark and the weird sounds that forest was making was spooking us out... :p
    We started getting calls from our other friends asking us where we were and we both were confused as well...
    There was no street lights anymore and we were already tired, but we were trying to act calm... Coz we knew that we will reach the gates today or tomorrow... :oops:
    Finally we saw some lights and we found out that we were near the place that we were staying at again... :)
    It was ~7 PM when we came back...
    We joined our friends and they were not happy to hear what we both did... :oops:
    Well... Later we both found out that it was only ~4.5 KMs of walk that we did and it was just our slow walk and fear that made it look that long... :p
