Weekly photo contest: Reflections!

Reflections make for a very unique subject in photos. Whether the reflection is in a mirror, water, glass window, or something else, it can add an element to a photo that makes it stand out. Your task this week is to use reflections to your advantage. The win this week will go to the person who can capture an image that just wouldn't be the same unless that reflection was exactly as it was.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 27th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Storms!

Whether you love them or hate them, one thing all areas of the world face occasionally are storms. While they can ruin your afternoon park outing rather quickly, they make for amazingly beautiful photos. From a thunder head rolling in over a lake to dark skies over endless fields, storms create powerful images. This week your task is to capture a storm photo — while staying safe of course. Feel free to use one you've captured in the past if you'd like as well!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 20th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

Weekly photo contest: Filters!

Filters are not only fun to use, they add something unique that distinguishes your photo of something from everyone else's. They also make it easier to be creative and really think outside the box when editing a photo. Sometimes applying filters on top of filters can turn something dull into something amazing. While filters aren't appropriate for every photo we take, they have their place. That's your task this week. Snap a photo and experiment with filters. Be sure to submit the ones you just don't think would be the same without filter effects!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, May 13th 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.

Weekly Photo Contest: Food!

I couldn't think of a better time of year to do a contest about food than the week of Thanksgiving, if you celebrate it that is. If you don't, well you have to eat anyways! If there are two things that flood photo sharing services more than anything, it's selfies and food. This week, we're going to focus on the latter. It couldn't get any easier than this, show us what you're eating for Thanksgiving, or for any other special occasion this week. Whoever makes us hungry the fastest, wins!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, December 3rd at 10 p.m. Eastern time.
