Get your hands on a free Nexus 7 courtesy of Google

Fancy getting your hands on a Nexus 7 without having to part with any cash? If you've been on the lookout for a 7-inch Android tablet, Google has a contest that may well be of interest. Providing you live in the US, you can take part in a photo competition to bag yourself either a free Nexus 7 or a $50 Google Play gift card. Sound tempting? All you need to do is take a photo of an arrangement of things that matter to you -- that's all there is to it!

The competition is not actually new as three draws have already taken place -- but there are only a couple of days left to try your luck with the final one. A reminder was issued on Google+ and while the introduction on the main competition page suggests that photos need to include an Android device, read on a little and you will discover that this is not actually a requirement for entry -- but make sure you don’t include a rival product in the shot though, as "non-Nexus or Android devices (phones/tablets) may not be shown in entry".

There have already been three draws and the fourth and final one is due to end on 19 November. The first prize is a 16GB Nexus 7 worth $229, and there are also five 2nd prizes of $50 Google Play gift cards. Keep in mind the usual small print that any photos submitted may be used by Google in promotional material, and could be edited in some way.

So what are you waiting for? Get creative, get snapping and in just a few days you could be richer to the tune of a new tablet or gift card.

Entry is simple. Just head over to the competition page, enter your details and upload a picture -- there's a file size limit of 2GB so you're free to upload just about the largest, highest resolution image you can lay your hands on. Good luck!
