Apple Announces iPhone 11 Night Mode Photo Challenge

Apple is kicking off 2020 with an all-new Night Mode photo challenge, inviting users around the world to share their best Night Mode photos captured with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max.

iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro models turn on Night Mode automatically when the camera detects low-light situations. A crescent moon icon at the top of the display turns yellow when the feature is active.

Apple will accept submissions from today through January 29. A panel of 10 judges will evaluate submissions and reveal five winning photos on March 4. You must be 18 years of age or older to participate, and Apple employees are not eligible. Apple has shared a PDF with full rules and eligibility details.

Apple says photos are allowed to be edited with Apple's Photos app or third-party apps and software. If edited, you must state what apps or filters you used in the image caption or comment. Any photo shot with the iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro, or iPhone 11 Pro Max in Night Mode since September 20 qualifies.

The winning photos will be shared on Apple's website and on its Instagram, Twitter, WeChat, and Weibo pages. They may also appear in ads and on billboards, at Apple Stores, or in a third-party photo exhibition. Apple says it will pay a licensing fee to the winning photographers for use of such photos in its marketing.

To participate in the challenge, share your Night Mode photos on Instagram and Twitter using the hashtags #ShotoniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge. Weibo users can participate using #ShotoniPhone# and #NightmodeChallenge#. Apple says to note which iPhone model you used to capture your image in the caption.

High-resolution photos can also be emailed to shotoniphone@apple.com, using the file format "firstname_lastname_nightmode_iPhonemodel."

Apple ran a similar Shot on iPhone photo challenge last January.

Love a good photo contest, but the fishermen/cormorant pic is a tourist attraction and has been done to death.

Can we get an album in our photos app that shows all pictures that were taken via night mode?

I thought the Apple Night Mode Challenge™ was figuring out if your photo used night mode.

Ugh, where's the delete button on this post? Apple doesn't owe you anything...
ugh, the richest company on the planet can't afford to pay $10k to winners for their photos? That they will later use for marketing? Really?

That was the problem last year, and people were rightfully outraged.

My girlfriend makes me take photos when we're out now because her phone “sucks.” Took a ton over Halloween, like this.
