Weekly Photo Contest: Lens Flare!

Weekly Photo Contest: Lens Flare!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- lens flare! With all the hype surrounding purple flare on the iPhone 5, we figured it'd be fun to have a photo contest dedicated to lens flare. The winning entry will not necessarily contain purple lens flare, however, so don't consider this a requirement. Just get creative with lens flare and if purple flare adds to the creativity, then by all means, try to include it!

Congrats to jamesdaly for winning last week's Instagram photo contest!

The prize: $30 iTunes gift certificate

In addition to a thumbs up from the iMore crew and all of us yelling about how great of a photo star you are, the winner of this week's photography contest will receive a $30 iTunes gift card allowing you to stock up on some of those photography apps you've been dying to buy!

The rules

The rules of entry are very simple. The photo must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch (we'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify) and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop CS6! If you have external lens accessories you are more than welcome to use them. You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!

Resources

Now, before you run off to take your photo, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win.

However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out our iPhone photography series for some tips.

How to submit

Submitting your photos is easy. just head over to the iMore Photography Forum and post your photos to the official contest thread. Don't forget to state which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!
