Weekly Photo Contest: Pets!

We all love our pets and are guilty of snapping photos with our iPhones of them doing everything from sleeping to chasing their tails. This week we want to see your pets and how creative you guys can get with photographing them. Since they don't tend to sit still or pose on command, we're interested to see what you guys can come up with!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, July 30th, at 10pm Eastern time.

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

Congrats to diamonguy37! This picture stood out to us simply because it's an awesome shot and really captures what summertime is about, spending time with family and having a blast. Congrats to you and we'll be in contact soon to claim your prize!

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

The prize: $50 iTunes gift card!

Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, this week will be giving away a $50 iTunes gift card to help you load up on all the photo editing apps you want!

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!
