The Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System (or Nintendo Entertainment System: NES Classic Edition in North America) is likely to be found in quite a few stockings this festive season, and based on the frenzy that accompanied the announcement it could be a tussle to get hold of a unit. Yes, it has games that many eager gamers have bought multiple times but, well, it's cute and rad - sometimes that's enough.

Nintendo UK has started off a contest designed to play on its retro appeal, through a social media campaign. Up to 16th August it's inviting UK residents to post a photo (new or old) and some words on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtag #ILoveNES. Some blurb from the contest page is below:

The winning entry will be selected based on how entertaining, nostalgic and NES-themed the photo is, so the more it appeals to our retro-obsessed judges the better! In fact, we'd like to use the very best of these photographs in an upcoming Nintendo advert. Up to 20 entries may be selected to feature in advertising for the Nintendo Classic Mini: Nintendo Entertainment System, selected based on how much they convey love and nostalgia for the NES!

The NUK Twitter account has already shared a few good entries, including those below.

Are any of you in the UK going to give this a go?
