The key to my solution to add the upload files capability to contributors in WordPress is the User Role Editor plugin: http://wordpress.org/plugins/user-role-editor/

For a detailed instruction of how to install the plugin and add the capability, please check this post: http://theitbros.com/allow-contributors-role-to-add-images-in-wordpress/
