Shadows are something all of us have, as do all the objects around us. Not only are they something we see every day, but they can add a whole new creative perspective to your photos. So that's your task this week, snap a killer photo that just wouldn't be the same without shadows.
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, April 22nd at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!
It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! And the winner is...
The above panorama was snapped by forum member buxna with an iPhone 5s. The photo was then edited with Snapseed. The thing that really caught our attention in this photo was the depth and the dramatic colors. The composition is great and the position of the bridge is creative and well thought out. Congrats! We'll be contacting you shortly to collect your prize!
Now on to the details of this week's photo contest!
The prize: Mobile Nations prize pack!
The winner of this week's contest will score a prize pack full of Mobile Nations swag featuring all kinds of goodies from your favorite sites. You can of course pick which pack you'd like but we already know you'll pick iMore, right?
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.

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!
