Summer unplugged photo contest

Enter our Summer Unplugged photo contest

Show us how you’re unplugged this summer, and you could win

Ahhhh... summer. With the warm weather upon us and we ease off the accelerator in our busy lives, we also get a chance to break free of our smartphones, laptops, and TVs. Send us a photo showing how you're spending Summer Unplugged, and you could win a $500 smart watch of your choice or one of two Ultimate Ears Megaboom Bluetooth speakers valued at $250.

Here's how it works:

  • To enter the Summer Unplugged photo contest, upload a photo using the button below that shows how you’re enjoying an ‘unplugged’ summer – whether it’s at the lake, kayaking, or enjoying a picnic with the family. If your submission is approved, it’ll show up in the photo gallery below. At the end of the contest, a panel of judges will review the submissions and select the top three entries. The contest runs between August 1 and 31, 2022.
