Apple has announced a Shot on iPhone Challenge for iPhone users around the world. As familiar as the name sounds, the Challenge is a photography contest in which photos submitted will be reviewed by a panel of judges, and 10 winning photos will be featured on Apple billboards in select cities, Apple retail stores and online.
The Shot on iPhone Challenge has a panel of 11 judges, six of whom are from Apple and five of whom are people with backgrounds in photography. The list is really impressive as it includes former chief official White House photographer Pete Souza, filmmaker Austin Mann, and Apple’s own Phill Schiller.
Apple says it will be accepting submissions through February 7 next month, with results to be announced in February. If you’re willing to do this challenge, follow the instructions from Apple, which is right after the fold.
Post your best photo taken on iPhone to Instagram or Twitter with the #ShotOniPhone hashtag to participate in the the Shot on iPhone Challenge. Weibo users can participate as well using #ShotOniPhone#. In the image caption, note which model was used. Alternatively, you can also submit the photo in its highest resolution to [email protected] with the file format ‘firstname_lastname_iphonemodel.’ Photos can be straight from the camera, edited through Apple’s editing tools in the Photos app or with third-party software. Submissions for photos begins at 12:01 a.m. PST on January 22 and ends at 11:59 p.m. PST on February 7. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate, and this challenge is not open to Apple employees or their immediate families.
Please take a look over at Apple’s official announcement to ensure your entry meets the required guidelines to qualify.
Good Luck, hope to see your work around!
