TechRepublic is continuing the camera phone challenge, where we’ll give you two weeks to submit photos taken from your phone in a particular category. This time, we’ll be accepting “beach” photos, since the heat of summertime is when quite a few folks tend to gravitate toward coastal waters.

You have from now until Friday, August 13, 2010 at 5:00 PM EDT to submit your camera phone beach photos. Please send these original photos, along with information about what phone you used (and the model number), as well as your TR username to trol at

The TechRepublic editorial staff will select their favorite photo from all the entries, and the TechRepublic member who submitted that photo will receive some free swag!

[Update 8/17/10 – The winning snapshot was taken by clementsk with an Apple iPhone 3 last summer in Hatteras, North Carolina. According to clementsk, “The beauty of this photo is that it was NOT posed (see below). This is my daughter, son, and niece checking out the waves before we left to come home.” Click here to see the entire gallery.]
