Weekly Photo Contest: Instagram!

Weekly Photo Contest: Instagram!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- Instagram! Instagram is one of the most popular photo sharing networks so it's time we have a contest focused around Instagram! There is no theme requirement for this week's entry, all we ask is that you post your photo to instagram, tag it with #imorecontest, then share it in our forums!

Congrats to ToddFSU for winning last week's avatar photo contest!

Speaking of Instagram, the network has recently made some changes that translates @mentions to Twitter. For example, let's say your friend is @bob on Instagram and @sexy_bob on Twitter. If you mention Bob in your Instagram post as @bob and choose to share to Twitter, Instagram will automatically change the mention to @sexy_bob before posting to Twitter. Pretty cool! For all the details, check out Instagram's blog post on the matter.

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!

In addition to the normal rules stated above, you must also post your photo to instagram and tag it with #imorecontest.

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!

How about we remove the requirement of posting it in the forums and you guys just select from the Instagram hashtag? Just makes it easier for submitting on the go... :)

Instagram has many power users with very few tools.
InstaPower User has more than one tool.
Follow/Unfollow tool: see how many followers have liked or commented as well as if you follow them back or not.
Comment response tool: manage your posts, see how many comments and how many replies you have made (included @username in comment)
Ghost Identification: find the followers who do not comment or like your posts. You can then decide to unfollow or remove one by one or all ghost users.
Problems Solved.
Like twitter bots, no need for webstagram, instafrmanger, instafollower
Why You need it?
One tool does it all - for real instagram users
Why fund it?
I need your help to make it better and to make it succeed.
How funding will help?
I am asking for your help to beta test, improve my application, improve the user interface, eliminate bugs and help me create the perfect icon. Any extra funds will help speed up the development time of the iPad and iPhone version. I am really looking to get as many people involved in this project as possible. The success of these apps are solely dependent upon the support of the users.
