Win a Nokia Lumia 1020 by submitting your low-light photograph to Nokia
Nokia's high-end Lumia models are known for their ability to take great photographs under low-light conditions. And now, the Finnish handset manufacturer has turned this into a contest. For all of February, Nokia invites you to send them via Instagram, a picture you've snapped in low-light. The photo must be hashtagged #LumiaLowLight and uploaded before 12pm GMT on February 28th.

A three judge panel will determine the best picture based on a number of factors, including creativity (how well the pictures appear in low light) and quality. There will be one grand prize winner and that person will win a Nokia Lumia 1020, a pro camera grip and a camera bag. The winner will be notified via Instagram at 6pm GMT, February 28th. Once notified, the winner has seven days to confirm the victory by replying to an email sent by Nokia. The prize will be sent out on or before April 1st.

The contest is open to anyone on earth 13 years of age or older, so start snapping away. In the meantime, Nokia has posted some low-light pictures so you can see what it is looking for in the way of entries. You can check out some of those photos in the sideshow below.

He! If I do that, they won't see a thing. I guess I'll borrow my mom's camera.

Oh great! I'll just post my profile picture here, displaying a meteor shower under the Aurora Borealis while three majestic eagles fly over a polar bear crying a single tear! I... uh... can probably at least win the argument that I need a better low-light camera.

Wow! You have such a smart GF. Know to use better tech and not to try to swim upsteam and knock the head against a rock!
