    Hey everyone!

    The OnePlus community is a huge source of impeccable pictures clicked by talented and professional photographers - and it can be a great source of Screensavers on the OnePlus TV. So, calling all shutterbugs from the community to participate in this special edition of Shot on OnePlus X OnePlus TV and co-create with the community for a Better & Smarter TV. :)

    We're inviting you to share your best photos to become OnePlus TV screensavers.
    Colors can reflect emotions, feelings - just like how a bright sunny day makes you feel energized and adventurous, a gray cloudy day reflects a lack of motivation, a green nature's photo appears to be calming, a warm golden sunset brings content and a dark dimly lit nightscape brings silence and peace. By wisely composing the scene, taking light and colors into account, you can transport those emotions to your viewers ;)

    But, a camera does half of the work - viewing the photos captured is the next difficult task, and a good screen can help to convey the true colors from the camera to the viewer. OnePlus TVs have been known for accurate color reproduction, reflecting the colors right from the photographer's eyes to your screen. OnePlus Q1 series, for example, is powered by Gamma Color Magic for mesmeric picture reproduction - thus providing accurate and mind-blowing colors. OnePlus Y series and the 55U1 also have a Color Gamut of 93%, and thus can produce a wide palette of colors.

    The OnePlus TV U1S provides a 4K Cinematic Experience to provide Ultra-realistic visuals in every frame. The TV has features like Noise-Reduction, MEMC, Auto-Gamma, and FCC to provide the best viewing experience to the users. The content will look clearer, sharper and with Gamma Engine optimization, the pictures will be AI-enhanced for the perfect view. A TV like this deserves the best photos from the community! ✌🏻

    Since the launch of the OnePlus TV in 2019, there have been several developments in the UI/UX and OS of the TV. But one thing that didn't see much development was the pre-set collection of the screensavers in the OnePlus Pictorial app. And this contest is a step towards it. With so many talented photographers in the community, we can build a beautiful collection of screensavers for the OnePlus TV, thus, creating a better experience for the community, by the community! :cool:

    Even though this contest is for OnePlus TV Screensavers, participants from all over the world are allowed, since photos have no boundaries.

    It was already mentioned in the rules, so I don't see how it's disappointing.
