Winners have been announced in the 2007 iPod Buyers’ Guide

The theme - iPod Colors - is simple. Apple has released the new iPod nano in six* colors - red, silver, pink, green, blue, and black. And of course, standard full-sized iPods come in white or black. Take a picture of any iPod - old or new - against an interesting background that emphasizes one of those colors. For example, you can have a white iPod on a pink background, a pink iPod on a silver background, or a black iPod on a black background - as long as the background is silver, red, pink, green, blue, black, or white, you’re set.

We will pick three total winners - two iLounge editor favorites, and one at random from all entries that have been voted upon by 5 or more users by October 31, 2006.

View the iPod Colors Contest Gallery.


Grand Prize - One Grand Prize winner will receive

    A brand-new Enhanced Fifth-Generation iPod (with video) in black.

Second Place - One Second Place winner will receive

    A brand-new 8GB Second-Generation iPod nano (aluminum) in black.

Third Place - One Third Place winner will receive

    A brand-new 4GB Second-Generation iPod nano (aluminum) in the winner’s choice of silver, blue, green, or pink colors.

Andres, you’re probably over the 150k limit for photos.  If you can, compress it more.

ikim1213, it’s a legal prerogative.  Get a relative to enter if one’s availible and willing.

I like how pics don’t have to be rated high to win the third prize. Just plain voted on haha.

That said, vote for me. = P Mine are the 3 most recent(ish) ones (all black and white) of iPod and bass, iPod and Fender amp, and my dog Missy rockin out (which some doucher voted as 0 haha).

Well, i posted p photograph, but the image in the gallery is very low quality. You have to click on it to see it in full resolution. That kind of dissapoints me, i hope that the editors will look at the high resolution images while choosing the winners. Btw, great contest.

I think I uploaded my second one to the wrong gallery… ah well, at least everybody can see it.

For future contests, where photos are involved, they should be due at a certain date and then once that date is here, then open them up to be voted on. That way…everyone has a good chance at getting votes, not just from being the first several submitted.
