No power? No problem for our latest photo contest winner

June 2, 2010

WestlawNext Mobile Photo Contest - Week 3 winner (Kari B.)This week’s WestlawNext Mobile Photo Contest winner gives new meaning to the phrase “power user.” When the lights went out one recent morning, Kari B. – a paralegal in Andover, MA – fired up WestlawNext Mobile on her BlackBerry and didn’t miss a beat.

This photo, which Kari took during the power outage, won her an iPod touch in the WestlawNext Mobile Photo Contest. “This was taken while sitting in the cafeteria at work,” she says. (This area still had lights, thanks to an emergency generator.)

Give WestlawNext Mobile a try, and you could be our next winner! If you’re a WestlawNext user, you already have access to WestlawNext Mobile on any iPhone, Android, BlackBerry, or just about any other mobile device with a Web browser. Just like WestlawNext, it’s entirely Web-based, so there’s no app or plug-in to download – just enter m.next.westlaw.com into your browser, and you’re already there.

Entering the photo contest is easy, too – just watch this video demonstration or follow the steps below.

  1. Snap a photo that shows your smart phone doing the WestlawNext thing, with the WestlawNext Mobile screen clearly visible. (You can include yourself in the photo, but don’t include others without their written consent.)
  2. Snap a photo of yourself. A simple self-portrait of your smiling face next to your mobile device is all you need. (Outdoor shots with interesting backdrops are generally best.)
  3. Email both photos (in GIF, JPG or BMP format) to westlelearning@thomsonreuters.com. Include your name, title, daytime phone, email, and your employer (name and address).  The email should also include a brief caption or description of the photo.

That’s really all there is to it – so power up and picture yourself a winner!
