Google is giving Pixel owners the chance to have their photos seen by millions of people

The Google Pixel has one of the best smartphone cameras on the market, and Google is encouraging users to make the most of it. As a part of a new contest announced late last week, Pixel photographers will have the opportunity to submit their photos for a chance to be featured in Chromecast.

In a Google Forums post on the Pixel User Community, a Google employee announced an opportunity for users to have their “photos seen by millions.” Individuals interested in participating can submit their photos, with the reward being that they will serve as one of the backdrops for the Chromecast home screen if selected.

Participants can enter by submitting pictures of the following via Google+, Twitter, and Instagram along with the hashtag #teampixel:

  • Landscapes
  • Macro
  • Nature
  • Animals
  • Abstract
  • Life
  • Cities
  • Buildings
  • Textures

The #teampixel hashtag has most recently been used for the chance to get your photos featured on Google’s Instagram page.

The contest appears to be open only to Pixel and Pixel XL owners.
