New Photo Mission: Violet by Motorola

By EyeEm Team - 3 min read

Capture these gorgeous purple hues in this new photo mission

Roses are red, violets are blue… wait, what? That’s not the violet color we are interested in. This freshest mission in our collaboration with Motorola is about violet tones of purple, from the light and bright to the dark. So, grab your camera and prepare to capture the incredibly popular Violet by Motorola.

Your Mission: The various tones of violet are all around us. This mission however, is all about capturing them at a 45 degree angle. To the left or to the right doesn’t matter, but for your photo to be considered it does need to be at an angle! The spectrum of violet is quite broad, so whether it’s a paler lilac to a deeper purple, why not have a go?

Your Reward: A selection of photos will be selected by the Motorola creative team and used as wallpapers worldwide on their new range of phones. Users around the world will be able to select your photo as their wallpaper – pretty cool, huh? The best photos from all of the Motorola color missions will also be featured as part of an Image Collection.

Deadline: May 3, 2015
