Apple today announced the ‘Shot on iPhone Challenge,’ inviting iPhone users from around the globe to submit their best shots for a chance to be featured on billboards, in retail stores and online. Submissions will be accepted from January 22 to February 7, and Apple says a panel of judges will be selecting 10 winning photos.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
As you can imagine, the list of judges is impressive. It includes former chief official White House photographer Pete Souza, noted filmmaker Austin Mann, and Apple’s own Phil Schiller. If you’re considering submitting an entry, you may want to take a quick peek at the guidelines to ensure your photo qualifies.
