One of the best new features on the iPhone 4 is its 5-megapixel camera. With a 1/3.2-inch backside-illuminated CMOS sensor, the iPhone 4’s camera is the equivalent of an entry-level point-and-shoot. But the iPhone has an advantage over other compact cameras—it’s always with you and ready to capture any unexpected moments.
Judging: Photographs will be judged by our editors based on quality, composition, personality, and how well they capture a moment. Editing is allowed, but keep in mind that a retro filter doesn’t automatically mean a better image. Take advantage of the Camera app’s built-in tools, like the new HDR feature and tap-to-focus. If you’re looking for inspiration, check out these great reader images from last year.
Prizes: One first place winner will receive a Vibe Plus, iEP515 Earphones, and an iPhone 4 case from iLuv. Additional iLuv prizes will go to the 3 second place winners, and 5 third place winners.
Deadline: The deadline for entries is October 29th, so start snapping! Winning images and honorable mentions will be featured on Macworld.com November 9th in a slideshow. You retain all rights to your submitted images, we will only ever use them in the contest slideshow.
