    Weekly Photo Contest: Utility-weekly-photo-contest-utility.jpg

    Plentiful wall bike racks. Taken with the Nexus 5.

    We like to mix things up a bit with photo contest prompts, and this one is a little bit out there but should yield some awesome results. This week we're looking for pictures that represent the word "utility" in some way. Show off pictures of tools, utensils, anything that helps you get things done. It could be a tractor, a bike rack or textbook — just make sure its a picture of something that has some utility to it.

    We'll be picking out the two best photos this week and offering up a prize to each one — this week's prize is a TYLT VU QI Wireless Charging Pad.

    Entering is easy. Just drop your entry in a post below. Tell us what Android you used to get the picture, and any back story you want to add to it. We'll pick a winner Tuesday (August 5) night at 11:59 PM ET, and announce them on the blog with next Wednesday's contest.

    • Pictures must be taken with an Android device
    • Pictures must be uploaded to the contest thread. I'm not running all over the Internet to track them down.
    • You have to tell us what device you used to take the picture, and any special software you might have used. Editing your pictures is fine — this is art.
    • Feel free to add a little back story — we want to know how the picture came to be.
    • You must have used a valid email address to register here at AC, so I know how to contact the winner.
    • Only one entry per week per person.

    Good luck, everyone!

    Can't enjoy a good halftime show without the bright lights at the field. No better way to spend a Friday night!
    Taken with an s4 last fall, no filters that I can remember.
    Edit: forgot to mention that the theme for that year for our band was Super Mario. If you look closely you can see Princess Peach (the conductor) standing next to the flag pinnacle.

    What utility is more useful, than the one that ends wars, builds empires, fulfills contracts, legalizes an agreement, and signs for your NVidia Shield Tablet shipment?
    Taken on a Nexus 5, no edits.

    Taken with my Samsung Galaxy S2 HD LTE. Used Photo Editor app to crop. What more useful object can there be than eye glasses. They help me and many others to see clearly what we are doing.

    The pen, i use this every day to sign my notes at the clinic I work at, without it I wouldn't get paid. And the watch keeps me running on time!

    Taken on a Samsung galaxy s5, used the stock photo editing app for the effect.

    This is my entry to this weeks photo contest.
    How this picture came to be: I was just sitting on the couch, doing nothing, when suddenly I got the brilliant idea to take my slipper and make a picture of the inside xD

    This photo was taken with my Samsung Galaxy Note 3, with the stock camera app. Edited with the stock editor in gallery.
