Weekly Photo Contest: Hyperlapse!

That's right guys, we want to see your Hyperlapse creations!

If you haven't heard about it yet, Hyperlapse is the new app from the team at Instagram. The app combines some really intelligent video stabilization with time lapse techniques. It's super simple to use, and a lot of fun, and we can't wait to see what you have come up with!

If you haven't already downloaded the app, you can find it free in the App Store.

As for criteria for winning, just make it interesting, fun to watch, touching... whatever you like! We'll choose a couple of favorites to win iTunes money. The contest begins now and ends Tuesday, September 2nd at 11:59 PM PDT. Good luck!

It's also time to announce the winner of our last photo contest! As always, we had many great entries, but alas only two could win. Those winners are...

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

The prize: $25 iTunes gift card

The winners of this week's photo contest will snag a $25 iTunes gift card to use towards whatever they want in both iTunes and the App Store! Been eyeing some new photo editing apps you'd really like to get your hands on? Here's your chance to snag some of them, compliments of iMore! And just because you guys are all so awesome, we're going to pick two winners this week!

The rules

Submitted videos must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

You must use Hyperlapse to create your video. 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 videos 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 video, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best videographer (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 videos is easy. just head over to the iMore Photography Forum and post your photos to the contest thread. Don't forget to state what device you used.

That's it! Now go out and shoot!
