Weekly Photo Contest: Black & white

 Tovrea Castle, Phoenix AZ - HankAZPhoto submission by HankAZ

This week's theme is Black & White! Interpret it as you will, and have some fun with it! It's a pretty broad theme, and lots of room for different perspectives, so take your best shot and maybe you'll be the winner next week!

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday, July 29th 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...

Bunker Hill

"Don't fire until you see the whites of their eyes." This photograph is taken by my iphone 4 and edited on instagram. I took this shot of the Bunker Hill Monument while visiting family in Boston, Massachusetts.

Congrats to forum member stacyeflick for snagging a win in our landmarks photo contest. We all thought this was a very interesting angle of the monument and the contrast between the stone and the sky is fantastic! Great job stacyeflick! We'll be contacting you shortly to collect your prize!

Now on to the details of this week's photo contest...

The prize: The olloclip for iPhone!

Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, we'll be giving the winner of this week's contest an Olloclip for the iPhone they currently own so they can capture all the awesome macro, wide angle, and fisheye shots they'd like!

The rules

Submitted photos 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, Lightroom, or other external editing programs! If you have external lens accessories such as an Olloclip or other snap-on lens, 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!


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 what device you have and which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!

Hello! I am thrilled to have learned that my photograph of the Bunker Hill monument was chosen as the winner for the landmarks contest last week. I was just inquiring about when and in what manner (e-mail, imore account) I will be contacted to receive my prize, as I have not yet heard anything more. I am very excited for it. :) Thank you!
