Weekly Photo Contest: Portraits!

Weekly Photo Contest: Portraits!

It's time to announce this week's photo contest -- and the winner of last week's water photography contest. Before I do, I want to congratulate everyone on their awesome entries. We've got some talented iPhoneographer readers here at iMore and it wasn't an easy decision!

And the winning entry is...

water contest winner

...this abstract photo by rajkumr! What made this photo stand out to me is that it's very unique. There were a lot (gorgeous) entries of bodies of water and water droplets on plant life and windows, but this photo was different. In a good way. The colors are gorgeous and I'm constantly trying to stare behind the glass and determine what's behind it. I'm very intrigued. Great work rajkumr!

This week's contest: Portraits!

With the end of one photo contest, comes the beginning of new one, and this week's focus in on portraits! This can be a portrait of your significant other, friend, or family member, a self portrait, a group portrait, or even a pet portrait! Heck, we'll even even accept a portrait of your favorite action figure! Be creative. Be original.

The prize: Glif tripod and Snapheal for Mac

We've got a treat for you this week and are giving away two prizes to the winning entry. The first is a Glif tripod case and stand and the second is courtesy of MacPhun -- Snapheal for Mac! Snapheal is a photo editing app for Mac that lets you erase unwanted objects in few clicks, remove spots on skin, delete text, scratches and perform pro image edits in a matter of minutes.

The rules

The rules of entry are very simple. The photo must have been taken with an iPhone or iPad (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!

Resources

Now, before you run off to take your photos, 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 these articles from 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!

Okay portraits are traditionally of the front of a person. Are portraits from behind acceptable?
