Weekly photo contest: Panoramas!

Sometimes we can't fit everything we want to inside a single frame, which is why panoramas exist. The iPhone, particularly the iPhone 5s, is capable of taking some pretty awesome panoramas. That's your task this week! Get out your iPhone and experiment with the panorama feature. Be creative and try some vertical panoramas too, you may be surprised at the results!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 15th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...

Design photobooks from your iPad with ease using Kodak Moments HD

iOS offers a variety of photo printing apps like Free Prints and PostalPix. But until now, none of them bore the illustrious Kodak name. That changes today with the release of Kodak Moments HD for iPad. With Kodak Moments HD, users can easily create high quality photo books and prints using photographs from their iPad or social media sharing sites. And unlike competing apps, Kodak allows users to choose from both ship-to-home and same-day in-store pickup options.

Weekly photo contest: Animals!

Animals are a great subject for photography. We aren't talking house pets here though, we're talking animals that you found outside. Whether it be birds, squirrels, a fox, or something else that's native to your area. Your task this week is to capture a great shot of an animal outdoors. Keep in mind a few things though — composition matters, and a photo of the family dog in the back yard won't take the prize. So get out there and find some interesting animal shots!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 1st at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly Photo Contest: Bokeh!

This week's photo contest is bokeh, which is just the common term for shallow depth of field. Everyone's seen it whether they know it or not. Popular examples are blurred lights in the background while the subject is in the foreground. It's typically a desired affect in portrait photography but has its place in other areas as well. Your challenge is to create bokeh in your photography in a tasteful and appropriate manner. And remember, post editing apps are okay as long as they are for iOS.

Weekly Photo Contest: Weather!

No matter what part of the world you're in, the weather changes all around us. For some of us that means massive amounts of rain or snow right now while for others it means awesome fall colors. Your goal for this week is to get out there and capture striking images of the weather around you. Just taking a photo out your window won't do. The prize will go to the person that combines all they've learned in our iPhoneography series in order to blow us away.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 21st at 10 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly Photo Contest: Technology and electronics!

The Mobile Nations crew is out covering CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week so we thought there's no better time to run a photo contest focusing on the topic of the week, technology and electronics! Anything is fair game that plugs in to a wall. If you're feeling particularly adventurous, things like circuit boards make great macro shots too! Don't forget, a random photo of your television set won't win the prize. The winner this week will be the person that can show us how technology impacts our every day lives.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, January 14th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

It's also time to announce the winners of our last photo contest! And they are...
