A few of you might be aware that I like taking photographs.  And if you don’t, why not? Check out a few here.  Anyway, at the beginning to the year, I was up for a new phone upgrade and spent months searching for the right device.  Camera was important, and I settled on one for it’s 8MP camera.  And it’s amazing.  But the fact of the matter is that it’s a phone with a camera.  It’s not a camera with all it’s nifty little tricks and gizmos.  But, as life would have it, I haven’t really been able to afford my Nikon D90 yet, and until I can, I will have to settle for this.

Until now.  I hope.  Fring Mobile and Sony Entertainment Television have paired up and have launched a competition that involves Africa, photography and Fring.  On offer, they have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W300 13.6MP machine.  And it is spectacular.  It has all the bells and whistles one would need from a point and shoot and much more. Plus it looks sexy!


For those of you that don’t know, Fring is awesome.  It’s a mobile app that let’s you integrate all your chat methods in one.  I use it when i’m away from my Laptop for Skype, Gtalk, Twitter and MSN messenger.  (There are a bunch of other communities too). The great thing about it is that it works really well.  It vibrates and rings (fringtones) like you’d want it too, and one of the coolest features is that I can make Skype calls on it.  Pretty damn great for an all-in-one app.


The way the competition works is, you take a photograph, with some form of “Africa” in it, incorporate Fring, upload to their Flickr account, by emailing your image to this address, and you’re pretty much good to go.  You’ll need your friends to comment to give you a better chance of winning, but creativity is probably your best bet.  The competition closes on October 31st, so get your entries in, if you’re brave enough for a challenge.  You can find more info on the Fring Blog here.  (And do us all a favour and click the link to see how awesome it is).

The winner will be announced on the really cool Sony Entertainment Television channel on the 1st of November on the show “Around The World For Free”. (That’s channel 113 on DSTV for non-knowers).

I plan to upload as many as I can, and you’ll definitely be hearing about them so you can go and help me win – AND you know you want to 🙂

Obviously, there are terms to this competition, so click here for those.

UPDATE: The competition has been extended until the 12th of November, so get those entries in!
