There's just hours remaining in the the Connect photo contest

Be sure to submit your photo by 11:59 p.m. PST October 24, 2012, for a chance to win our $5,000 grand prize! Second place will receive $3,000, and four honorable mention winners will be awarded $500.

Post your submission on Instagram with the hashtag #dprconnect, and use our online form to officially enter the competition.

Remember our theme: We want to know what "connect" means to you. Show us how you connect with others through mobile photography. Share with us how this new medium fostered a sense of connection and community among those creating, sharing and enjoying images through "smart" phones and cameras, and image-sharing platforms.

Winners will be announced next month.
