How to Enter the Next Photo Contest

Capturing the texture of your subjects is a great way of drawing attention to your images. Texture adds depth and interest to your photos, giving them a 3D-like quality. The aim of photographing texture is to give the viewer a sense of what the object would feel like in real life, such as rough, smooth, fluffy, silky, shiny, slimy, etc.

Texture Kate

So the new contest theme is texture, and any photos that clearly show the texture of your subject can be submitted.

To participate, simply tag your photos using IPSTexture 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.

    Awesome group of photos! Thanks for choosing mine. My daughters were especially happy you chose Coraline, which is the name of the doll in the shot. 🙂

    Thank you, Kate and Emil! I’m honored to be included with such great iPhoneographers! Michal’s is my favorite, as usual 🙂 Kate, what is your handle name on IG so I can include you in my thank you?

    • Thanks for participating! It was a fantastic set of photos for my first contest. I’m @kate.wesson on Instagram 🙂

  • It’s so hard to pick one favorite but I keep going back to Michal’s beautiful black and white beach shot. Thanks for including my image of the leaf that looked like a tree =)

    • Thanks for participating Geri! The sky in Michal’s shot is just incredible 🙂

  • Luis Castro

    Thank you Emil and Kate! It’s always an honor. Congrats to all the winners!

  • A wonderful selection of photos as usual, but my personal favorite was the beautiful photo by @atsash. The window draws your eye right past the angles of the monochromatic room to the beautiful colors on the beach. It was an outstanding example of this week’s theme. Good choices Kate Wesson!
