Photo submission by buxna

It's the end of summer and fall is just around the corner, and for many people that means it's time to head back to school. Whether you're back in class yourself or you're sending the kids off with new backpacks and lunchboxes, it's a busy time for all involved. This week we want to see your best Back To School shots.

The contest begins now and ends Tuesday September 23rd at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

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

Filmed my son trying to complete a circuit of a playground. My trusty iPhone 4 dropped some frames, and my son said it looked like a video game! All editing done on an iPad. Titles made using TitleFX, then cut and music added in Pinnacle studio iPad.

Congrats to forum members applemaximus and rhugs for snagging a win in our Hyperlapse contest. Great job! We'll be contacting you shortly with your prizes!

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

The prize: Olloclip for iPhone!

The winner of this week's photo contest will snag an Olloclip for whatever model iPhone they currently have. The Olloclip is a lens attachment that lets you capture wide angle, macro, and fisheye shots all in one. Simply snap it over the top of your iPhone's camera and start shooting!

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!
