Weekly Photo Contest: Pumpkin!

Photo submission by JB01

Every October our minds turn to Halloween and Autumn, and a big part of this season for a lot of people is pumpkins! From carving jack o' lanterns with the family to baking delicious pies, drinking Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Lattes and the kids making pumpkin crafts at school, they have really become a staple of the season. So this week let's see those pumpkins! Whatever form you find them, we want to see them! 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 ends Tuesday October 28th at 11:59 PDT. Good luck!

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

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

The prize: Nakamichi Bluetooth Speaker with NFC!

The winner of this week's photo contest will snag a Nakamichi Bluetooth Speaker with NFC. Using advanced Bluetooth technology along with quick and efficient NFC pairing, Nakamichi's Bluetooth Speaker provides a powerful sound with deep bass for both music and calls.

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!
