No Lifehacker contests are currently running. See below for the latest winning submission and check back soon for the next opportunity to have your work published and help us out.

Maybe you've noticed Crowdhacker, (y)our weekly column at Lifehacker. Hopefully you haven't noticed how crappy the title photos can be.

Let's change that. And let's do it in a way that gives you an opportunity to show off your photography skills to tens of thousands of readers.

The Crowdhacker title photo contest starts now.

Starting today, you will see meta posts featuring a soon-to-be-syndicated Stack Exchange Q&A denoted with the tag [crowdhacker]. Each of these posts is a contest that functions very much like Picture of the Week.

Submission Rules:

  • Images must reflect the question posed, the answer(s) given, or the general content represented in that particular contest Q&A.

  • Images must be 640 x 360.

  • Limit one photo per person per contest.

Voting Rules:

  • Up votes only. Down votes will not be counted towards a submission's final score.

  • Vote for the image that you think looks sharp & best represents the spirit of the particular contest Q&A. Remember: these are title images, and the more professional they look, the more likely Lifehacker will choose to feature them. Reward high-quality submissions.

The submission with the most up votes at the end of the contest period will be featured at Lifehacker, attributed with a name and link of the winner's choosing.

Fine print: In the event of a tie, Lifehacker will choose among winners. Stack Exchange and Lifehacker reserve the right to reject a photo for any reason. By submitting you are agreeing to license your photo under CC-BY-SA 3.0. This agreement does not apply to versions of the image not submitted.

Ready. Set. Snap.

    \$\begingroup\$ We've decided to only run two concurrent contest at a time on PhotoSE: The PotW and Sam's LifeHacker contest. Four concurrent contests felt like too much for our community to absorb given our size and membership activity. We're not quite SO. ;) \$\endgroup\$
