Responding to the outrage from the artistic community after it announced the “Shot on iPhone Challenge” contest earlier this week, Apple’s now confirmed that ten winning photographers will indeed be compensated for their work.
The Cupertino company has refreshed Thursday’s press release announcing the new “Shot on iPhone” contest with the following fine print:
Apple believes strongly that artists should be compensated for their work. Photographers who shoot the final 10 winning photos will receive a licensing fee for use of such photos on billboards and other Apple marketing channels.
To participate in the contest, post your best photo taken on an iPhone to Instagram or Twitter with the #ShotOniPhone hashtag. Weibo users can participate as well using #ShotOniPhone#.
Regardless of where you post the image, you should note in the image caption which iPhone model was used to shoot it. Alternatively, submit the photo in its highest resolution to firstname.lastname@example.org with the file format ‘firstname_lastname_iphonemodel.’
The Cupertino technology giant notes that your photos can be straight from the camera or edited through its editing tools in the Photos app or with third-party software.
