It’s not often that I talk about Twitter parties around here, but I think this one is a good one, so I wanted to share it with you! Nokia is running a contest called “Take Two,” where you submit a picture that was an epic failure and Nokia helps you get a chance to take that picture again. The video below explains it-
We’ve all had it happen before, you try to take a picture of something amazing that you are seeing so that you can remember that moment forever, you can show your friends, your family, post it to all of your social media sites, but alas… you get a blurry blob instead of a stunning photo and the moment is over, there is no way to get it back. Until now. Nokia is conducting a nationwide search to find a select number of people most deserving of an opportunity for a chance to relive that moment, and this time you can take a picture that is sure to turn out because you will be using the Nokia Lumia 1020. This is more of a phone built around a camera, where most phones have a camera that is sort of an afterthought. You can enter the Nokia Take Two contest from now until October 16th, 2013, so find that missed opportunity picture and submit it for a chance to get a “re-do.” You can also find Nokia on Facebook.
The Nokia Lumia 1020 offers:
- 41 megapixel sensor captures the sharpest images with details never thought possible with a smartphone
- Nokia Pro Camera boosts creativity through simple and easy to use controls usually reserved for the expert photographer
- Nokia Rick Recording delivers distortion free stereo audio in the loudest environments
- Comes with the only fully integrated and true offline Global maps experience from the HERE location suite

Here is my #EpicFail photo-
This is Jason with Moose and Tater this year when we went to Roatan on our first ever trip with the boys’ and Jasons’ parents. We went to a scuba resort called Anothony’s Key, when we arrived we took our first ever boat taxi ride and I thought it would be amazing to take a picture with all 3 of my boys in front of the sunset, what a great memory! Right? Well, it didn’t work out that way. I had my cell phone camera on auto-flash so I assumed things would work out the way that I wanted but when we got off the boat and I looked at the picture I saw this <— which was not what I had intended at all! The picture is dark and you can barely see their faces, and Moose has his eyes closed.
To top it off, Jason had a bunch of pictures on his phone (he is in charge of pictures usually) and he accidentally jumped into the ocean, on his scuba prep dive, with it in his pocket. So all of those pictures are gone too. Overall, our whole vacation was a photo #EpicFail. My boys’ first time on the ocean, out of the country, no documentation worth showing.
I entered this picture in the Nokia Take Two contest and I urge you to enter your own too!
