How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we published a tutorial with tips on how to take great iPhone photos of moving subjects.

Motion iPhone Photos 38

Depending on a variety of factors, such as light, shutter speed and how fast your subject is moving, any motion in your photo will either be frozen or blurred. The article gives you tips on how to take control of the appearance of motion in the scene so that you can create the shot you envisioned.

Motion iPhone Photos 62

So the new contest theme is Motion, and any iPhone photos that feature moving subjects, whether the motion is frozen or blurred, can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your iPhone photos using IPSMotion tag on EyeEm. You can tag photos in the description field when you upload them, or when you edit the description of a photo that has already been uploaded (tap the three dots icon to edit a photo).

All photos must be shot and edited on iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. Please upload photos to EyeEm in full resolution and without any watermarks to make sure we can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, April 26.

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.
