Posted December 04, 2017 09:04:38The world’s leading image analysis company has released its first ever Christmas competition, where users can submit their best festive images.
The top 100 entries from this year’s competition will then be selected to be featured on the company’s Christmas website.
In a blog post published today, Google said its Christmas competition was intended to help users discover great holiday images, with the aim of generating a community of holiday images that are “well-liked”.
“We’re really excited about the challenge of building a global community of great Christmas images,” said Chris Cox, the company senior vice president of Google News and search, in the blog post.
“It’s not just a one-off holiday event – we’re hoping this will be a regular occurrence, and the competition will give a real opportunity to all the people in the world to show off their holiday imagery.”
The contest, which was launched on December 4, is open to all users, but it will only be open to Google users.
“We have some fantastic images that people are sharing, and that’s why we’re really happy to have the competition open to anyone,” Mr Cox said.
“The competition is going to be fun, it’s going to get interesting and it’s exciting.”
Google will be hosting the competition on its Christmas website, which will be free to participate in.
It also has a special feature called the Holiday Holiday, where people can enter a competition to win a free Pixel, an Android phone, or an Android tablet.
The Google News community, which has more than 1.4 million members, has been inundated with images from users across the world.
It’s possible that a number of the entries will be featured in the competition itself, as the company is offering a prize of $100,000 for the top 100 submissions.
“Our competition is the result of a year of hard work and collaboration with Google News users around the world,” the company said.
Google said the Christmas competition will be running until December 11.
“For those of you that missed the deadline, we’ll be keeping an eye on your submissions,” it said.
