In lots of different parts of the world spring is upon us. With the official first day of spring only a few days away, it's a perfect opportunity to get outside, enjoy the fresh air, and grab some great shots. For parts of the world that get heavy snowfall, it's starting to melt and flowers are starting to bloom. That's your task this week, get a great shot that you think best represents spring, wherever you are in the world!
The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, March 25th 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...
Congrats to forum member e1miran for snagging the win in our portraits contest! I picked this photo because it's just about as selfie as you can get but it's done tastefully and isn't overdone with effects. Great job! I also enjoyed seeing a lot of you in person and being able to putting faces to names, or rather forum handles!
The prize: Olloclip for iPhone!
This week's winner will snag an Olloclip for whatever version iPhone they may have. Not only can you capture awesome macro shots with it, it's also a wide angle and fish eye lens all in one!
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!
