    Winner 3 is

    The third winner of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3 is .... DRUM ROLL ....
    Verdavaine Yan, for his article Memory-efficient Navigation in Very High Resolution Images on Windows Phone.

    This article delivers two re-usable UI controls which enable fluid and memory-efficient zoom, pan and rotate inside very high resolution (or gigapixel) images, using the Nokia Imaging SDK. We were impressed with the results achieved both on high and low memory devices - irrespective of the image size. Not only is this a significant technical achievement, but the article is well written, and provides useful information that is not covered by the Nokia Imaging SDK documentation.




    Yan also contributed the article Optimizing Imaging SDK use for rapidly changing filter parameters (used by his winning article) and valuable feedback about the SDK.

    In addition to his own articles and feedback he has also selflessly helped many other developers with advice about their entries (including some of our other winners) and with help for using the SDK on the discussion boards. As his contribution was "within the competition" we could not consider him for "Wiki Contributor of the Month" and "Discussion Board Poster of the Month". We do however consider him a true "community star", and will be sending him a (bonus) Monster headset as a token of our appreciation!


    Please join me to congratulate Yan on his win! (and also our other winners: PedroQ and Tomáš Slavíček). Other winners to be announced shortly!

    Re: First winner of the third segment is

    Congratulations Yan. I knew you'd won the competition "Memory-efficient Navigation in Very High Resolution Images on Windows Phone" is a great article, thanks.

    SDK Feedback Winner is ...

    The SDK Feedback Winner is aesirconsultancy for requesting blending functionality like that provided by writeableBitmapEx. The request was made early on and was subsequently requested by a number of other users. We consider it good feedback because it shows an understanding of what is offered by the SDK, and because we appreciate the importance of building bridges between the Nokia Imaging SDK and the hugely popular WriteableBitmapEx library.

    The SDK feedback part of the competition was extremely successful, with great feedback provided by a large number of developers, including wiki competition winners PedroQ and yan_ . Some of the feedback has already gone into the SDK and we're hoping a lot more will go into the next update.

    Thank you to everyone who contributed. The feedback part of the competition is now complete, but of course we welcome your further advice and suggestions going forward.

    Winner 4 is ...

    The fourth winner of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3 is .... DRUM ROLL ....

    Sebastiano Galazzo, for his article HDR I - Implementing High Dynamic Range filters using Nokia Imaging SDK.

    This article explains first how to implement an HDR engine and next how to combine Nokia Imaging SDK's filters with HDR source images to improve images and filters, and to create new filters. We particularly liked the innovation and ambition of this article - and some of the filters/image improvements are quite striking. Best of all, Sebastiano includes his prototype app, so you can try out your own combinations and find out what works best.




    Sebastiano also contributed the article Neural Network based Image Processing, which provides a generic/re-usable library for working with neural nets - very cool indeed.

    Please join me to congratulate Sebastiano on his win!

    Winner 5 is

    The fifth winner of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3 is .... DRUM ROLL ....

    Toni Petrina, for the article Partial filter application and blending with Nokia Imaging SDK. This article provides a walkthrough of a powerful image editing application, with main feature that a user can select part of the picture by 'painting' over it, apply a filter only to the painted region, and blend the filtered region back into the original. The whole app is impressive, and the article does a good job of explaining how the main features are implemented. We liked the selection tools (and in particular the "magic wand") and all the options for blending.



    Please join me to congratulate Toni on the win!

    Honourable mention

    Our last award of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3 is an "Honourable mention" for RatishPhilip , who will receive a Lumia 720 for the article Filter Parameter Harmonization - Dynamic UI generation for filter parameters.

    This article explains how to create a single UI control which dynamically offers the correct UI elements (sliders etc) for editing the parameters of the currently applied filter.



    The article seemed quite different to others in the competition - along with Ratish's other articles (FilterSquare: Using Nokia Imaging SDK to create an innovative Filter App for Windows Phone 8, How to apply filters to specific image region using the Nokia Imaging SDK, Handling rapid imaging filter parameter changes using Rx) we thought it worthy of special mention.

    Re: Congratulations to the winner(s) of the Nokia Imaging Wiki Competition 2013Q3

    The competition is now complete, bar a few blogs about our winners and sending the prizes. You will note that we announced an additional winner of a Lumia 1020 and a Lumia 720 for our "honourable mention" - reflecting the overall high quality we saw in the competition.

    Please join me to thank all the winners (and honourable mention):
    • Verdavaine Yan (yan_ )
    • Sebastiano Galazzo (galazzo )
    • Toni Petrina (to_pe )
    • Tomas Slavicek
    • PedroQ
    • (SDK Feedback) aesirconsultancy
    • (Honourable mention) RatishPhilip



    Please also take the time to thank all the people who competed, either by providing SDK feedback or by creating articles. Much of the feedback has already been integrated into the SDK, or will be in future iterations. All of the articles had some merit and many would be particularly useful for solving different imaging tasks. Within Nokia one of our first steps will be seeing what information in these articles and feedback can be used within the official library and SDK.

    This has been a great experience.
