Weekly Photo Contest: Black and white!

We're back after a week long hiatus and this week's topic is going to be black and white! Those are the only rules we've got for you but keep in mind that not just any black and white photo will win the prize, it's got to be something that grabs our attention and combines some of the things you've learned in our iPhoneography series.

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, September 17th, at 10pm Eastern time.

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

Congrats to forum member Westin Lennox who snapped the above photo with his iPhone 5. The reason this photo stood out to me was because of its vintage look. It's somewhat of an oxymoron to have a photo of such high tech gear but then make it look vintage. It works though and it's an awesome photo. This photo actually gave me the idea for this week's photo contest, so thanks for that!

Congrats to Westin Lennox! We'll be contacting you soon to collect your prize!

And without any further delay, here are the details on this week's photo contest...

The prize: $30 iTunes gift card!

Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, we'll be giving the winner of this week's contest a $30 iTunes gift card to help them load up with even more awesome photo editing apps of their choice!

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 which apps, if any, you used to edit your photo!

That's it! Now go out and shoot!
