iStore iPhoneography competition now open

The iStore’s iPhoneography competition is back and you can enter now. Apple has launched two campaigns to showcase the camera prowess of the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The first was photographs and the second was, released a few days ago, videos. This competition continues on this and you can be part of it.

The competition is adjudicated by iStore and it is now in its fifth year. Entries are opened now and will close on 28 August 2015. That means there is still plenty of time for budding photographers to take photos, as many as you can until you find the one’s you think are fit for a competition.

The competition’s mandatory rule is that images have to be taken with an iPhone and with additional camera add ons like lenses and iPhone photography editing software to be eligible for selection.

Over the years, the competition has unleashed some really good photographs. Taking place in both Johannesburg and Cape Town and with exhibitions in both cities, it has become a chance for iPhone users to take images that will be exhibit.
