Weekly Photo Contest: Halloween!

It's almost Halloween and that means trick or treat, carving pumpkins, costumes, parties, and scary movies! There's a heck of a lot to capture through photos, that's for sure! That's your task this time around, capture the best photo you can that shows off how you celebrated the Halloween season!

This time we'll be running the contest for two weeks instead of one so we make sure we cover the entire Halloween season. We'll also be picking two winners this time around, which means double the chance of winning!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, November 5th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

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

Congrats to forum member strangerbeat! Not only did the above photo manage to capture both of the textures we wanted, it's also an all around amazing photo!

For those wondering, the above photo was captured with an iPhone 5 and was taken at Vernal Falls.

Great job! We'll be contacting you shortly to collect your Olloclip!

And without any further delay, here are the details on this week's photo contest...

The prize: Mobile Nations prize pack!

Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, we'll be giving not one, but two winners their choice of a Mobile Nations prize pack that contains all kinds of goodies from your favorite sites! These packs include a coffee mug, stickers, pens, a t-shirt, and more! You'll get to choose which prize pack you'd like; iMore, CrackBerry, wpCentral, or Android Central!

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 which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!
