My friend, and former NetSlaves partnet, Bill Lessard, ask that I post this up. So I am.

Yahoo! Announces Launch of Yahoo! Mobile Photos Upload

Consumers on the AT&T Wireless, Cingular, T-Mobile, Sprint PCS and Verizon Networks Nationwide Can Now Save their Camera Phone Pictures Directly to their Yahoo! Photos Account on the Go

Beginning today, consumers on the five major U.S. wireless carriers (AT&T Wireless, Cingular, T-Mobile, Sprint PCS and Verizon) can upload their camera phone pictures directly to their Yahoo!

Selected entries will be featured at throughout the program and the site will be updated daily with new photos. The entries will be narrowed down to 20 finalists and consumers will then be able to vote from August 18, 2004 to September 1, 2004 to help name their favorite picture as the winner. The winning picture will be announced on September 8, 2004.
