After a short hiatus, iMore's weekly photo contest has returned, and this week's topic is the Holidays! Be it a photo of your gorgeous Christmas tree, a pic of a beautiful holiday decoration, or a snapshot of your kid all dressed up for Hanukkah, we want to see them! Any photo taken with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch that reflects the holidays is an acceptable entry. We hope you have a lot of fun with this one!
The contest begins today and ends Wednesday, December 26, the day after Christmas at 8p Pacific Time.
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 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!
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!
