Weekly Photo Contest: Autumn!

Photo submission by lessismore17

Changing leaves crunching beneath your boots, laughter filled hay rides, crisp cool air, and pumpkin everything... that's right, it's Autumn again! This week we want to see what fall means to you. Feel free to look beyond the leaves and pumpkins and get creative, however if your photo doesn't fit the subject in an obvious way it could get looked over, so make sure you leave a back story or explanation with it.

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday October 14th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! The winner is...

Now on to the details of this week's photo contest...

The prize: Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount!

Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount

The winner of this week's photo contest will snag an Arkon Mobile Grip 2 Universal Smartphone Flexible Mini Tripod Mount. Say hello to the perfect mobile accessory for capturing images and video in the most obscure locations!

The Mobile Grip 2 Mini Camera Tripod works with smartphones up to 3.6-inches wide and even digital cameras that utilize a standard 1/4" - 20 camera pattern. The spring-loaded device holder on this unique mount expands to accommodate your phone, some even while wearing your favorite case. What makes this tripod different is its maneuverable legs, which can be adjusted around fences, trees, poles... almost anywhere that enables you to get that perfectly positioned shot. The legs themselves are cushioned to help reduce unwanted vibrations during your shots in large events, concerts, etc.

As of right now I'm planning on picking just one winner, but if we get a LOT of great entries I'm always happy to pick more than one!

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!
