How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Last week we featured a tutorial on the importance of using lines in your composition.  Including lines in your iPhone photos can have a powerful impact and help lead the eye into the image.  Lines can be straight, curved, S-shaped, converging, parallel or diagonal and they work best when they lead towards the focal point of your image.

Bridge Lines

So the new contest theme is lines, and any photos that include lines in the composition can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSLines 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 10.

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.
