Weekly Photo Contest: Buildings and architecture!

Out of all the photos we see you guys posting on the web, there always seems to be a good amount of interesting buildings and architecture mixed in with all the food porn. That's why we have decided to make it the topic of this week's photo contest. From abandoned buildings to super cool architectural installations, it's all fair game.

This is a great contest to take advantage of editing apps and any lens attachments you may have. We're excited to see what you guys come up with!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, August 13th, at 10pm Eastern time.

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

Congrats to gnforpeace! Not only did you manage nail the topic completely, the editing is tasteful and really makes all the texture on the tree really pop making what was probably a great shot to begin with, even better! The following apps were used to edit and produce the photo above:

Great job to gnforpeace and everyone else who submitted awesome photos! The decision this week was one of the hardest ones we've had to make yet so keep up the stellar work!

We'll be contacting you to shortly to collect your Olloclip!

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

The prize: iStabilizer Monopod!

Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, this week will be giving away an iStabilizer Monopod that's compatible with almost any smartphone, including your iPhone! It can attach to almost any tripod that uses a standard size mount. The iStabilizer Monopod is great for self portraits or just to get that extra stability when you need it.

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!
