    I do not feel you did anything wrong. Trying to reach out to the female audience was absolutely fine. However I feel it was taken in the wrong way. It was a decent contest, possibly could have been done in a different manner, as asking for pics kind of becomes an 'iffy' situation.
    Though it makes me wonder, how about all the other brands that advertise products for the ladies, why are they not called sexist for showing females in skimpy clothes and what not. Anyway, let us just leave it at that, food for thought for another day.
    All is well now that it has been taken off. Let us just move on from this. You can never keep everyone happy.

    If OP wants to involve more women in tech, hire them in your team. Do you really need advice on this as a company? @@Carl

    So all the women that participated won. Not bad, but you should have stuck to your guns and had let the contest go on, I guess Cyanogen had to twist your arm a bit in order to end this contest.

    I appreciate their having taken a moral stand by cancelling the contest. It shouldn't have gone up in the first place, but at least when it became apparent how it was being taken, they did the right thing, and I applaud that.

    People like tech, or not!
    People like onePlus one, or not!
    No contest can change that.
