Heads up, iPhoneographers, share your best iPhone photo to be featured on a billboard

For quite a long time, Apple has been constant with their Shot on iPhone series. This is to showcase that the iPhone’s lens could produce professional and quality photographs, as it becomes today’s modern medium of photography.

Now, Apple is stepping into 2019 with an event which (still) aims to demonstrate the iPhone’s photography capabilities through a challenge: they are asking for submissions of what iPhone users consider their best photos shot using their latest iPhone XS and XS Max, XR, or even the older models.

From January 22 (12:01 a.m, PST) to February 7 (11:59 p.m, PST), iPhone users can send their submissions by simply posting them on Instagram or Twitter with the hashtag: #ShotoniPhone. Otherwise, they could email their entry at [email protected] with a specific file format (firstname_lastname_iphonemodel).

Also, participants must be 18 years old and above to join.

This contest will be judged by esteemed photographers across the globe such as Austin Mann from the US and Annet de Graaf from the Netherlands. Some Apple executive will also be part of the jury. There’s Phil Schiller, SVP for Worldwide Marketing, a person that you’d usually see in Apple keynotes.

Only 10 photos will be selected by the panel, and these selected photos will be featured on billboards (selected cities only) as well as in Apple retail stores and online. Good luck!
