Caption Contest: Former Nokia CEO (and definitely-not-Microsoft-Trojan-horse) Stephen Elop [Update: WINNER!]

We're introducing a new fortnightly feature on Neowin today, with the launch of our Caption Contest.

Twice a month, we'll pluck a photo from recent news events, or from our archives, presenting it to you to have a bit of fun with it. The best captions - whether selected by us, or upvoted by our readers - will win a prize, and the eternal admiration and respect of their peers. (Or at least a few laughs.)

The picture

Stephen Elop, former Microsoft Trojan horse CEO of Nokia, in happier times

In the week that Microsoft ended its mainstream support for Windows Phone 8.1, we've picked a photo of Stephen Elop, former CEO of Nokia, which sold more Windows Phones than all other manufacturers combined. In the photo, taken at Mobile World Congress 2015 - after Nokia's devices and services business had been acquired by Microsoft - Elop certainly seems happy about something...

But what could it be? What's he thinking? What's got him giggling? Share your caption, and you never know... you might win!


The contest

Add your caption in the comments below. Just before the next contest, we'll select one lucky person to win a 12-month Tier 2 Neowin Subscription, giving you ad-free browsing of the site for a full year, along with a bunch of other features! It's as simple as that!

Neowin subscriptions offer access to restricted forum content, early access to new site features, and site-wide ad removal. They also help to support Neowin, enabling us to bring you more of the high-quality content you crave, and more of the groovy giveaways you desire! If you don't win the contest, you can support Neowin by purchasing a subscription for as little as $14 a year - find out more here!

You'll need to be registered on Neowin to submit your entry for the Caption Contest, but it's free, quick and easy to sign up, and it'll only take a few moments. Finally, make sure you keep your caption suggestions clean, profanity-free, and good-spirited... and above all, funny! ;-)

Good luck!


We have a winner!

Congratulations to Mando for winning the contest, with the caption below - a reference to Microsoft's quarterly $250 million 'Platform Support Payments' to Nokia, to ensure the manufacturer's commitment to Windows Phone:

Mando's entry was voted the best entry by our readers, so he'll now enjoy a one-year Tier 2 Neowin Subscription!
