    Hello Everyone

    In June 2021, we had the very first edition of “Shot for OnePlus TV” contest hosted by @Yash Pratap Singh. and there were some amazing and beautiful entries with the “Colours” theme, that made me want to use the OnePlus TV Screensaver Pictorial for the first time on the OnePlus TV. So thank you all for your wonderful entries that look stunning on the large screen of the TVs. And also special thanks to our lovely Photography Experts @Bouncer71 @cdnfarmer @hennes @otto2 @script @TibiTibi and @woSch who have been of great support always. OnePlus TV team has already started pushing the top entries in batches as screensaver in rotation and here’s a glimpse of how some of the top entries look on the massive 65 inch 4K screen of the OnePlus TV 65U1s.

    This month I have been given the privilege of hosting this contest as @Yash Pratap Singh. is slightly occupied with his studies.. So, let’s wish him all the best.

    Now if you are wondering what exactly is “Shot for OnePlus TV”, do check out this thread. This contest is an opportunity for all the shutterbugs of the OnePlus community, to co-create and turn their pictures into screensavers of the OnePlus TVs for a better user experience.


    What’s the Theme?
    OnePlus TV U1S comes with a 4K cinematic Display for an immersive viewing experience. It has 8.3 million pixels that provide great picture clarity and brings the picture to life. So, this month’s theme is Four-K.

    Now, for the contest, if you are confused with what does Four-K means, let me explain.
    You have 2 options with the entries -

    Option 1:
    Capture and post a photo that represents the number “Four”. It can be 4 Trees, 4 Spoons, 4 Cars or even a photo of the number 4. Your imagination is the limit!
    Here are some sample shots

    Option 2: Capture and post a photo that has a Place/thing/sport etc which starts with the letter “K. It can be a picture of a Kangaroo/Kebab/King or a photo from Kansas.
    Here are some sample shots

    Do keep in mind that the selection process would also factor in how good the picture will suit as a screensaver on a large TV screen. So it’s time to see the world with a creative angle ;)

    Even though the OnePlus TV is only limited to the Indian market, the community’s talent should remain unrestricted, and that’s why the Contest is open for users from all over the World and not just limited to India.

    Thanks for the thread @Venky61!
    Theme given to the team was super weird, but I'm glad that after some creative thinking, we made it into a competitive topic :D

    Looking forward to your entries, best of luck 👍🏻

    Is that a CT114 training jet? @hennes
    No other currently flying plane in RCAF has a similar wing-to-body proportion...also, they've reversed the standard wing shift so that the planes take off faster, but they don't fly really fast due to higher backward drag generated....

    Mah smooth baby looks beautiful...:rolleyes:

    Photography contests were never my area, but I'll find something out for this 😅

    This should also have been 4K

    Points should be given to top 3 as well along with goodies, as they're would be more worthy sometimes.

    Can I share some good click on me and say that's King (of my room 😝)?

    You haven't invited us 🥺 Atleast share some clicks after the event
