30 Incredible iPhone Photos That Tell Great Stories

Thank you all for participating in this weekly iPhoneography contest. This week the contest theme was storytelling, and any photos that can create stories in the mind of the viewer could be submitted. While this was a challenging theme and there were slightly less submissions than on other weeks, the winning photos this week are just incredible.

Which one of these photos is your favorite? Please let everyone know in the comments!

How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Despite conventional composition guidelines such as the rule of thirds, in iPhone photography you can often get extraordinary results by positioning your subject in the center of the photo, especially when composing square photos.

Processed with VSCOcam with lv02 preset

So the new contest theme is central subject placement, and any photos where the subject is placed centrally can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSCentral 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 I can feature them on the website. Please do not submit more than 10 photos each week.

The submission deadline is Sunday, August 3.

    Thanks for selecting my image Veteran and Wife. I was struck that almost half the selections featured children.

    • I guess you’re right, but I didn’t do it on purpose 🙂

    Hi Emil,
    i am very new to your page and am interested in these contests and reading and watching your tutorials. although i am nervous to post any pictures (them being decent or not lol) i am curious and dont know if you have covered this question. do you take your pictures with the iphone camera? or do you take the pictures with the camera provided in the app? i am excited to participate and find a new passion/hobby in my life by learning from your tutorials. 🙂

    • Yes, most of my photos are taken using the native Camera app, but I sometimes use other camera apps when I have a particular goal in mind.

  • Tracy Weiss

    Can the pictures I upload for the contest be cropped and/or put through app filters?

    • Yes, they can be editing in any way you want as long as the photos are taken and edited on an iPhone, iPad or iPod Touch 🙂

    erikacbrothers’ girl on the shoreline took me right back to when I was a kid with my feet slowly sinking in the wet sand. Felt like I was there.
