Calling All iPhone Photographers: Apple’s Night Mode Photo Challenge Could Land You In Their Next Campaign
By Leah Freeman-Haskin
If you’ve ever dreamed of seeing your photographs in a major campaign, this could be your chance. Now through January 29, Apple has put out a call for submissions for your best night mode images taken on an iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.
According to Apple.com, “iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max offer a best-in-class camera experience and bring major advancements in photography to the world’s most popular camera.” The phones come with an impressive list of camera features including a breakthrough dual-camera system, a new wide sensor with 100 percent Focus Pixels that enables Night mode, next-generation Smart HDR, and upgraded Portrait mode experience.
A panel of select judges will evaluate submissions to reveal five winning photos on March 4. The winning photos will be celebrated in a gallery on Apple Newsroom, apple.com and Apple Instagram (@apple). They may also appear in digital campaigns, at Apple Stores, on billboards, or in a third-party photo exhibition.
Share your top Night mode photos taken on iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #ShotoniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge to participate in the challenge.
If you are ready to put your photography skills to the test, here are a few tips from Apple for shooting in night mode:
- Night mode automatically comes on in low-light environments. If the yellow Night mode icon is showing, you’re shooting with Night mode.
- Night mode determines capture time based on the scene and displays this time in the Night mode icon. You can tap on the Night mode icon and adjust the slider to Max to extend the capture time.
- Try propping up your iPhone or using a tripod for a longer capture time at the darkest time of night.
