    How Do We Select Winners?
    The pre-selection team
    consists of: @@Bouncer71 , @@cdnfarmer , @@hennes , @@otto2 , @@script , @@TibiTibi , and @@woSch . We check all pictures of the contest, discuss, which we think are the best, and collect them in a separate thread. Then this group of experts, plus OnePlus staff members, go in a second-round through that collection and nominate the 4 or 5 best pictures of the current week. Out of this elite, the final weekly winning picture gets selected. It‘s really a long and careful process.

    Finally, the selected picture has to get checked! Therefore it's needed to contact the person that has posted the picture, ask him or her to send in the original uncompressed file, to get the EXIF data checked. Only after that final check the winning picture can be announced in the forum. And again, it's never settle.

    Dear OnePlus photography enthusiasts,

    With half of 2020 already behind us, do you have special memory? For this NEW Shot on OnePlus contest, we're returning to a monthly theme. Without a doubt, when we think of July, #SummerVibe comes to mind.

    For me, Summer has always been the season with the most precious memories – bright sunlight, clear sky, breeze over the beach… I have a lot of stories to share with you.

    Back in 2018, when I finished the first year study in Journalism & Communication College, I came to Hong Kong and joined the reports of Hong Kong Books’ affairs with my teacher and schoolmates. During the two weeks journey, I saw many famous authors in China, enjoyed lectures by them, and had a small tour of Hong Kong university.

    After that, I went to a special school for voluntary teaching in Jiangxi province, which children not only study literature classes, but also practice Kungfu. We played with them, lied down on the ground to watch the stars of summer night. Impressive, isn’t it?

    In 2019, I was enrolled in the International scientific survey project of Nanjing University, which gave me a chance to travel to Tokyo, Japan. It was my first experience in a foreign country, and I can’t even speak a word of Japanese. (Lol) One afternoon I went to shoot Tokyo Tower, but lost myself when going back home for the night. In tram stations, I met many kind Japanese, who tried to tell me how to take trams in English, or thorough Google translator. I had to say it was a difficult conservation, but it really warmed me up.

    After that, I went to Guizhou province for voluntary teaching again… This time, I saw a splendid waterfall, which was said to be home of Sun Wukong (the Monkey King).

    Now, in 2020, as you know, I joined OnePlus as a trainee, and have this chance to share my Summer stories with you. I always believe photography is a good way to tell a story, to keep memories.

    So, let’s share your summer stories! Anything you cherished in summer, any experience happened in summer is great. A romantic BBQ, fire at night, refreshing drinks …It's OK to post your photos only, but i'll be even better to tell the story behind the picture;).

    Important notice: Please keep yourself SAFE when taking photos outside, we wish you will have a delighted and impressive summer time.

    That picture is from Cayuga lake in Upstate New York, specifically in a town called King Ferry. My friend Jonathan has the lake house we are at, and he is throwing my son Jeremiah into the lake. We called that picture “Rocket Launcher”. We were actually taking turns throwing him out of the water back and forth, he loved it.

    Good luck to everyone who is able to participate. I will pass simply because we are entering winter here. We have had very low temperatures showing us what will come through these coming months.
    We are still having lock out in my city and state.
    Thanks for the great moments when I had chance to have my pictures evaluated. See you next time.
