From the world’s largest selfie to Stephen Alvarez’s incredible selfie moments at Victoria Falls, you know we heart our selfie-tooting Lumias and we love to see your selfies! So we have one more selfie competition for this year…

If you’ve dreamed of clicking a picture-perfect selfie in front of the Taj Mahal, from the rooftop lounges in UB City, by the houseboats on Dal Lake, at the Bandra–Worli Sea Link, or in the Great Backwaters, now is your chance to do it and get rewarded.

The aim: Click a selfie that chronicles iconic landmarks and popular spots across India.

Show your love for India 

Launching today as part of a new campaign, “Romancing India with Lumia 535,” Microsoft India invites you to capture the essence of the country through selfies. And what better way to kick this off than by having popular Bollywood actor Nargis Fakhri take the first selfie?

“I’m thrilled to launch the campaign as it brings two of my passions together, travel and selfies,” said Nargis Fakhri after clicking her selfie at the majestic Lodhi Tomb with the Lumia 535.

Challenging her fans and followers to showcase India, she said, “I am excited to see how these landmarks are brought to life by the youth of the country.”

Starting today, the month-long campaign will see Nargis posting her selfies from a Lumia 535 at some of India’s most popular hangouts and iconic sites. The perfect “5x5x5” smartphone has a 5-megapixel wide-angle front camera, which means it helps you fit  in more people and memorable backgrounds than any other smartphone camera.

Five lucky winners will win a brand new Lumia 535 and some cool accessories. Here’s how you can enter the contest:

  1. Post your selfies on the Microsoft Lumia India Facebook page or tweet them @lumiaindia with the hashtags #RomanceUrCity #Lumia535.
