Who Wants My iPhone?

UPDATE: The winner has been chosen, check out the gallery of the top hundred or so entries.

I’m the proud owner of a new iPhone 3Gs. That said, I’ve got my last iPhone, this lovely black 16GB 3G (pictured here), that I’ll no longer be using. Don’t get me wrong…I love this little sucker. I’ve lugged it over 200,000 air miles, literally around the world, and it’s taken all the daily iPhone pics that you’ve seen on my Twitter feed and Facebook fan page. She’s still in tip-top shape. It’s dear to me, but it’s time for me to give it to you.

In exchange, I want to see your photos (in the spirit, we’ll limit it to mobile devices only…iphone or any other camera phone – honor system here…) posted to my Facebook fan page. You’ve got till 12 noon on Tuesday 6/23, my time (GMT -8). On Tuesday the give away will close, I’ll pick my favorite image from all those uploaded and I’ll give that person my beloved iPhone 3G. Announced Wednesday 6/24.

To participate, you’ve got to:
1. ‘Become a fan’ on my Facebook fan page. (NOT my personal page, but the FAN page. Follow that link…)
2. Under the “wall” tab in the ‘what’s on your mind’ window atop the page, write your name and a url if you’d like.
3. In that same window, directly below where you just wrote your name, click on the ‘add photos’ icon.
4. Upload your favorite mobile image. No limit to the number of entries. Anyone can enter, from anywhere in the world.
5. When you win, I’ll send you my iphone in the mail. Easy peasy.

[I’d love to see some community love here. Don’t be a miser. Please share this. It’s really about pictures and not about the phone. Also, if you’ve got time, visit the Fan gallery and click ‘like’ to any images that inspire you. This isn’t part of the giveaway, but it seems like a nice way to look at some pretty pictures and maybe make somebody’s day.]
[Lastly, images in my iPhone gallery, shot with the iphone in question, are here. Chk ‘em.]

    Love this Challenge Chase! I will RT it and I will be posting my pics.

  2. James Stoneley June 19, 2009 at 10:53 am #

    It's not any old iphone – this one survived a hit and run and still looks in top shape….

  3. Serge Van Cauwenbergh June 19, 2009 at 10:57 am #

    Cool challenge! I will RT your message.

  4. John June 19, 2009 at 11:03 am #

    I also got a iPhone 3G S today, already love the camera. I would like to see a post from you about your most used apps and your typical iphone workflow :-)

  5. Aaron June 19, 2009 at 11:12 am #

    My wife dropped her 2G last week and broke the screen. Here's my chance to get her a new one. Or, at least participate in something pretty cool. Cool idea man.

  6. Morgan Moller June 19, 2009 at 11:31 am #

    Ahah, great idea and ecologically responsible! If I win, will you ship to Belgium? ;)

  7. Scott @ ChaseJarvis June 19, 2009 at 11:42 am #

    Worldwide shipping included. Cheers!

  8. Matt Lange June 19, 2009 at 11:43 am #

    interesting for sure…


  9. Syed's Photoxploration June 19, 2009 at 11:48 am #

    This is the very same reason why more people are fan of Chase than any other photographer!!! Always encouraging.

  10. Neil Corman June 19, 2009 at 11:51 am #

    Another great offer Chase. I still remember the SB2 offer you did last year. I am waiting for my 3G S to show up today (upgrading from a BB) but will share this with others.

  11. Steve Holmes June 19, 2009 at 12:01 pm #

    While I don't need the phone–I got a 3Gs today–I just wanted to say this is such a great idea to promote iPhone photography. I love the new phone in the 3Gs, and I can see myself using it a lot.

  12. Brendon June 19, 2009 at 12:03 pm #

    But what if we don't even have a phone that's capable of taking pictures, let alone connecting to the Internet!

  13. River Ave Studios June 19, 2009 at 12:27 pm #

    Awesome, so many mobile pics to choose from to submit.

    Just picked up the new 32 gig myself and still getting new phone updated with all my apps and such.

    Also you get the package chase?

  14. P Thomas Lambert June 19, 2009 at 12:29 pm #

    Ahh, Wait a minute, isn't that the same iphone that was run over with a car, sprayed with a fire hose then dropped 50 feet from a bridge with you still attached.
    You mean it's still working. Man someone is going to get some rugged iphone.

  15. myimagelife June 19, 2009 at 12:40 pm #

    world wide shipping? … thats great … await my photos …

  16. Anthony June 19, 2009 at 12:53 pm #

    Great idea to get people to share the images the rest of the world might not otherwise see.

    You definitely inspired me to start shooting with my iPhone and look at all the details most people walk past every day.

  17. Eric June 19, 2009 at 1:16 pm #


    That is a very cool contest. Now I want to know if you had to wait in line?

  18. Matt S. June 19, 2009 at 1:40 pm #

    Finally—a potential benefit for starting my own daily iPhone challenge a couple of months ago (which was, of course, inspired by CJ)!

    Besides, my original iPhone could use an upgrade.

  19. Mandy June 19, 2009 at 1:58 pm #

    The only place I think about an iphone is in my dreams…My mobile's slowly dying, just got to get it working long enough to take a photo!

    Love the challenge as well, I've never done a mobile photo challenge before – cool

  20. Marc June 19, 2009 at 1:58 pm #

    I'd love to participate, if only I didn't have to join Facebook to do so… bummer!

  21. Chase Jarvis June 19, 2009 at 1:59 pm #

    btw, this is NOT the "phone" that appeared in my Consequences of Creativity series of videos. That was a stunt phone (fake actually) that got run over by the car, shot with a fire hose, and dropped from a bridge ;)

    But very observant of you all….

  22. Marc June 19, 2009 at 1:59 pm #

    I'd love to participate, if only I didn't have to join Facebook to do so… Bummer!

  23. Chase Jarvis June 19, 2009 at 2:02 pm #

    @mmm: sorry. i know not everybody uses facebook. i'm only running this thru facebook because it was totally 100% spontaneous and this was the easiest for me. seriously. like 5 minutes from concept to publish. i'd of had to do a bunch of stuff to make this possible… i'm lazy ;)

    thx for the feedback.

  24. Bartek June 19, 2009 at 2:03 pm #

    Nice! So shame I'm from Poland…

  25. Mike June 19, 2009 at 2:08 pm #

    Love the idea of the competition. The added incentive of your iPhone makes it really fun haha.

    One pic per person?

  26. TheSundayBest June 19, 2009 at 4:44 pm #

    Unfortunately I don't have any mobile device, nevermind one with a phone. But I look forward to seeing what comes out of this!

  27. Blinq Photography June 19, 2009 at 4:48 pm #

    Someone is getting an iPhone 3GS by the looks of things – nice Chase.

    But a great idea no-the-less.

  28. Philip Pang June 19, 2009 at 7:30 pm #

    i am waiting the launch in malaysia. wonder the camerabag can be re-download again to new iphone 3Gs for free?

  29. Meglyn June 19, 2009 at 9:18 pm #

    WAYY cool can't wait to upload to your FB Fan pg…. will definitely re tweet – check out your gallery, upload and then cross my fingers, toes, etc., :)


  30. Jayson Kingsbeer June 20, 2009 at 5:12 am #

    you should do a competition like this through twitter? That would be excellent :)

  31. kobak June 20, 2009 at 5:22 am #

    Great idea, looking forward to see lots of great mobile shots. I'll give it a try too. :-)

  32. dialachineduphotography June 20, 2009 at 8:49 am #

    Hey Chase,
    Thanks soo much for this chance…I read your blog constantly and your work inspires me to be a better photographer, a dream which i pursue aside my college Nursing/Premed major…I will go all out on this contest using my Samsung SYNC and it will make my year to win…its not really about an iPhone…its about Chase Jarvis' iphone…

    Goodluck to my fellow Chase Jarvis fans


  33. Kris Arruda June 20, 2009 at 10:43 am #

    Thanks for the opportunity.

    You are a true inspirer.

  34. fas June 20, 2009 at 11:58 am #

    Cool contest this is. I am sure everyone would love to win :)

  35. Eddie Barksdale June 20, 2009 at 4:14 pm #

    Too bad I don't own a camera phone. Actually, too bad I don't even own a cell phone for that matter. Thus, I win for being too poor to make myself look rich. :)

  36. ClaWeD June 21, 2009 at 2:19 am #

    Very cool idea, Chase…may the world think like you…good way to show your stuff to Chase…sent a full flickr link…

  37. kaylin.rodriquez June 21, 2009 at 2:47 am #

    I'm so sad, I can't participate because I don't HAVE a cell phone that can take pictures! My blackberry's camera is busted! So I'm not only deprived of a sweet iPhone to start, but I can't even join the race to win one! *sob* time to upgrade the celly, much!?

  38. Ghislain June 21, 2009 at 8:34 am #

    I'd love to participate just to say I've got Chase's IPHONE. I wouldn't even touch it, I would frame it! :-) but I can't participate because I do not have any phone device I can take pictures with…. :(

  39. raubse's blog June 21, 2009 at 12:27 pm #

    i dont want your iphone!

    Chase, I don't understand why we have to write our names in the "whats on you mind". I thought it was normal to use full name on the facebook profile.
    Looks a litle weird when I write
