Weekly Photo Contest: Let it snow!

For a lot of us around the world, snow has started to come down and the holiday season is just around the corner. While cold weather isn't always fun and requires a lot of layers in order to keep warm, it can be beautiful. Your task this week is to get out there and capture it. Whether it's sledding with your children, looking out the window with your favorite animal friend, or any other kind of snow related activity.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, December 17th 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 RBZz on winning with the above entry. Out of all the entries, we felt that they did the best job of really combining food with the photography aspect. It resulted in a great image that caught our attention.

We'll be contacting you both 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 sending the winner a Mobile Nations prize pack full of swag from your favorite Mobile Nations sites! You can even pick which prize pack you'd like whether it be iMore, Android Central, CrackBerry, or wpCentral. But we already know which one you'll pick, right?

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!
