Weekly photo contest: Transit!

Odds are you've been on a train, plane, bus, or some other kind of transit before. For many of us, it's a daily part of how we get from point A to point B. Transit systems and the people that use them can make for amazing photographs as well. So your task this week is to grab an amazing shot with the subject being some kind of public transit. Perhaps it's an interesting person you met on the subway, or a dark tunnel with a train emerging. The choice is yours, just be sure you submit your best work!

The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, June 24th at 6 p.m. Eastern time. Good luck!

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

Congrats to forum member Polenzo for snagging the win in our clouds photo contest. The reason I picked this particular photo is because the clouds are exactly what make the picture. Without them, the image wouldn't be nearly as captivating as it is. Great job! We'll be contacting you shortly to claim your iTunes gift card!

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

The prize: Olloclip for iPhone!

The winner of this week's photo contest will snag a brand new Olloclip for whatever version iPhone you currently own. The Olloclip is a lens attachment that allows you to capture stunning wide-angle, fish eye, and macro photos without the need for any fancy camera gear.

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!
