Weekly Photo Contest: Thankful

(Photo submission by Gfmiller13)

It's Thanksgiving in the US this week, so what better time to share with your iMore family the things most important to you? This week your assignment is to post a picture of what you're thankful for in your life. Feel free to 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 is open until further notice. Good luck!

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

Here's a game you don't see everyday. Flinch! iPhone 6+ and Snapseed.

Congrats to forum member flashtilley for bringing home a win in our Games contest. Great job! We'll be contacting you shortly about your prize!

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

The prize: Glif tripod mount and stand!

The winners of this week's photo contest will snag a Glif tripod mount and stand for their iPhone. The Glif can be mounted to any tripod, small or large so you can grab great shots and videos with no motion blur.

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!
