Yahoo India Editorial ADMIN June 10, 2013
Hello there, Flickr Shutterbugs!

The monsoon has finally rolled in to the southern coast of India, putting an end to the scorching heat of summer. Aren't you inspired?

Step out, look out for the first drop of monsoon rain in your neighbourhood, and capture the magic moment with your smartphone camera. We're looking for interesting, dramatic and unusual compositions. The best photographs chosen by our editors will be featured in Yahoo! India's Travel Galleries section, which receives more than 30 million visits every month.

Use the Flickr app for your smartphone to post your photos (get it here: Flickr on your mobile)
Ensure that you enable location services on your Flickr smartphone app and add a caption and description.

Do observe these simple rules:

1) All photos must be original. Plagiarised works will not be accepted and accounts found plagiarizing copyrighted photographs will be removed from this group.

2) Make sure your photos are set to be downloadable. This is very important. We cannot publish photos that do not obey this rule.

3) Avoid watermarking your photos. If you are concerned about copyright and misuse of your photos, you may add a small credit at the bottom right-hand corner of your photograph. In any case, we will link published photos to your Flickr photostream.

4) Post your images here to our new group 'The Great Monsoon Smartphone Photo Challenge - Flickr App only'
