    Android Central Photo Contest: Pillars-ac-photo-contest-pillars.jpg

    Old pillars overlooking downtown

    Structural pillars obviously provide practical benefit as a replacement for complete walls, but of course they often prove to be aesthetically-pleasing parts of a building's design as well. Whether the building is old or new, we're sure you'll be able to take some really interesting pictures of pillars in the next two weeks.

    Your entries will be in the running for one of three Aukey Quick Charge 2.0 10400mAh Portable External Battery packs!

    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 (November 3) night at 11:59 p.m. ET, and announce them on the blog with the next 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 contest per person.

    Good luck, everyone!

    You can't. Tons of us have been having this issue for months and it has yet to be fixed. Really annoying. I can't enter the contest because of it

    I've had this issue a few times as well. My solution? Email the picture to yourself (or upload to cloud), get to a desktop/laptop, and upload to AC using the website on the browser. It's not ideal, certainly, but it will get the job done.

    "The Temple of a Thousand Pillars" - all of them have images of warriors carved into them. Used to have a roof that collapsed long ago.

    We found this beautiful church ruins on a road trip between Charleston and Savannah Georgia. It was built in the 1750s and is surrounded by these ancient trees. I used my classic Nexus 5 to take this picture.Android Central Photo Contest: Pillars-img_20141020_161320.jpg

    Android Central Photo Contest: Pillars-sacr-c-ur-paris.jpg

    This is an interior shot of of Sacré-Cœur Basilica - taken during my Honeymoon in Paris - September, 2015. Amazing architecture, with stunning pillars above and below the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

    Camera: Samsung Galaxy Note 4
    Editor: Google Photos

    The Basilica of the Sacred Heart of Paris, commonly known as Sacré-Cœur Basilica, is a Roman Catholic church and minor basilica, dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in Paris, France. A popular landmark, the basilica is located at the summit of the butte Montmartre, the highest point in the city. Sacré-Cœur is a double monument, political and cultural, both a national penance for the defeat of France in the 1871 Franco-Prussian War and the socialist Paris Commune of 1871 crowning its most rebellious neighborhood, and an embodiment of conservative moral order, publicly dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was an increasingly popular vision of a loving and sympathetic Christ.

    The Sacré-Cœur Basilica was designed by Paul Abadie. Construction began in 1875 and was finished in 1914. It was consecrated after the end of World War I in 1919.,_Paris

    Shot on a Nexus 4 at the Legion of Honor, San Franciso. The place is beautiful, and the light that day was just right.
