Now that's cold! You chose Cold as the theme for the January contest, and we're opening entries now -- no need to wait until Jan. 1.

How can you illustrate cold?

Lots of possibilities with this theme, too: Freezing rain, snowy landscapes, bundled-up people, ice-trimmed trees or power lines, frozen ponds ... we're in New England, so there shouldn't be a shortage of good subjects! I think we can skip the common cold, cold sores, and Coldplay, okay? Although giving someone the cold shoulder or an icy stare might be interesting...

To enter, set up a Flickr account, upload at least 5 photos, choose just one, and add three separate tags to it:, contest, and January. In fact, if you don't have a Flickr account, set one up as soon as you can, even if you don't have a contest photo yet. It can take Flickr two weeks to find new accounts, and if it doesn't find yours, you could be shut out of the contest.

The deadline is midnight Jan. 31.

Here are more details about how to enter.

Photography apps for your phone
