This selection includes a wide range of interpretations from the iconic to the unique. Well done and congratulations!

Summer is all about the beach.

But summer is also a great time to capture sunshinedramatic weather, and hot, exciting colors.

    Thank you for including my photo of Earl the horse–I’m honored to be included with all these talented artists! I have a technical question: I have a hard time navigating to a place where I can see the current contest winners. From my phone and my desktop, when I click on “contest,” I see my own photos and I’m prompted to enter more, but I can’t find a way to see the winners of the latest contest. It seems like there should be separate pages: one for entering photos and viewing current contest submissions, and another one for viewing previous contests.

      The “contest” tab takes you to the location where you can upload photos, but the very first post on the page includes all the contest winners for this week. Thanks so much for sharing your photos! Here’s the link:http://iphonephotographyschool.com/rural-scenes/

      Thanks for replying, Lisa Jo! I tried logging out and closing the browser window to start from scratch. I opened the ipps site and clicked on Contest. That took me to a page for the Summer photo contest; there are no photos showing. I logged in, and was taken to the Discover page with submissions for the Summer contest. There is nothing I can click on that takes me to the page with the Rural contest winners. The only way to get there is to click on the ipps icon (to return to the home page), and then click on Blog, and then scroll to find it; only THEN do I get the chance to click on the first post to see the rest of the winners. Today, of course, it’s the first post because it’s the newest. This seems like a cumbersome and unrewarding way to view each week’s winners. Just sayin’. I like participating, and there’s some wonderfully creative work here, but I think the site is hard to navigate.
