How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we published a really great tutorial covering 7 Tips For Taking Amazing iPhone Street Photos Of Strangers.

The article is full of useful tips on building your confidence, remaining discreet, and preserving the anonymity of the people you photograph.

Practical tips for remaining discreet include shooting from a distance, blending in with your surroundings, photographing from behind or above, and capturing reflections, shadows or silhouettes.

Once you’ve become more confident, you can then try shooting from a closer distance so that you can capture the facial expressions and emotions of your subjects.

So the new contest theme is Street Photography, and any iPhone street photos can be submitted.

To participate, go to contest.iphonephotographyschool.com in your web browser and sign up or log in.

When you’ve signed in, tap Submit Photos then select the photo you want to upload.

Repeat to upload more photos (you can submit up to 10 images). If you change your mind, you can delete a photo by tapping Delete beneath the image.

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Images should not have watermarks.

The submission deadline is Sunday, April 10. Winners will be announced on Monday, April 11, and the winning images will also be featured on our iPhone Photography School Facebook page.

It's easy to take a quick snapshot with iPhone, but most people don't know how to take full control of their iPhone's camera. That's why we created a free video revealing 7 hidden iPhone camera features that every photographer should use.

  • Mike Lodge

    So the new contest theme is Street Photography, and any iPhone photos of buildings in landscapes or urban……….Does the last part refer to the Buildings contest as opposed to Street Photography.

    • Well spotted Mike! It should have said street photos – I’ve altered it now. Thanks for letting us know 🙂

  • Maria Papakostopoulou

    Hello! Does it matter if we have already posted the pics on Instagram?

    • Hi Maria. It’s fine to submit photos that you’ve already posted on Instagram or anywhere else 🙂

  • Joanna Proffitt

    Love that shot, Masako Kozawa!

    • Masako Kozawa

      Thank you, Joanna!

  • Faye

    Question…am I correct in assuming that a winning photo in any given contest may be entered in a subsequent contest?

    • Ranc

      That’s what usually people do and I notice same pics win different contests. However I think a winning picture shouldn’t be eligible for the subsequent contests.

    • Hi Faye. Yes that’s right – there’s no restriction on which photos you can enter 🙂

    • Faye

      Great! Thanks for getting back to me.

  • Darek Sobiecki

    Kate ! Thank you for all your selections of my photographs – it has always given me a lot of pleasure ! Although it has never happened before, today the last letter of my surname is missing – the correct one is Sobiecki 🙂

    • Hi Darek. Sorry about that – I’ve corrected it now 🙂

    • Darek Sobiecki

      Thanks Kate ! 🙂

  • Fiona Grose

    Thanks for including one of mine, always a little buzz, my 2 favourite photos are submitted by Leah Eddy and Masako Kozawa, I always feel a little bit jealous when I see everyone else’s photos but I guess that’s good, keeps up the pressure to improve.

    • Masako Kozawa

      Thank you, Fiona! Such an honor.

  • Deena Berton

    A nice surprise to have one of my images included. Thank you. I really like all the images. My favorite is the image by Anna Rezulak. I just love the perspective and the fact that she had the foreground elements of weeds which complimented the derelict building.

    • Laine Rudolfa

      Congratulations Deena! 🙂

  • Ruben Carlon

    Wow thank you so much for featuring my pic each contest is more difficult since there is a lot of talent here, congratulation to every one else.

    • Laine Rudolfa

      Congratulations Ruben! Keep up the good work. 🙂

  • Suzanne van Putten

    Thank you Kate, I was so excited to see my pic included in the 30 as there is such a high caliber of photography in the list. My favourite is Charles Heszley I am a big fan of reflection in buildings.

    • Laine Rudolfa

      Congrats Suzanne! Your photo has an amazing perspective. 🙂

  • Gracia Cid Blasco

    Thank you Kate for including one of my photographs!! I´m so happy today :-). It’s the first time I stand at your weekly contest and it’s been a nice surprise! There’s a lot of talent here. Congrats to everyone else!

    • Laine Rudolfa

      Congratulations Gracia! And thanks for entering your beautiful photo. 🙂

  • Mike Lodge

    Any further news on being able to see all of the photos submitted. Also what is the chance of when the images are put onto the FB page that comments are added so that members can maybe understand why particular images were chosen. Thanks.

    • Je-ann

      Hi Mike, you can now view all the photos submitted. You can tap on the “All Photos” option on the top right of the contest page or access it here: http://contest.iphonephotographyschool.com/all_photos

      We’ll take note of your suggestion about including the comments. Thank you! @katewesson:disqus

    • Mike Lodge

      Hi Je-Ann
      Thanks for getting back to me. Funnily enough I did notice that after I sent my message – what about retrospective viewing like last weeks Building contest. I looks like just the current entries.
      Regards Mike

    • Je-ann

      We’re going to look into that. Thank you! 🙂

  • oldladywalker

    I enjoy all the photos, the stark black and white, some I know are buildings not certain what direction they are shooting and the photos that are scenes.
    Being a hiker I relate to Jason Farrar photograph. It’s eerie when I walk into a scene like his, I never know who is around. It appears tranquil but is it?
