Beyond the Box Hosts iPhone Photography Contest

If you’re an iPhone owner and loves taking pictures, Beyond the Box has started a Street Photography Contest just for you.

Titled as Tap to Focus: An iPhone Street Photography Contest, Beyond the Box is challenging photographers to capture meaningful photos using only your iPhones.  Entries must feature captivating scenes from the streets and submitted photos will be judged by street photography enthusiasts Allan Florendo, Ateneo Sta. Ines, Jasper Tejano, and popular duo Ryan & Garovs Vergara of Everywhere We Shoot.

The criteria for judging are as follows:  50% for Creativity, 30% for Originality, and 20% for Relevance to the Theme. To maintain the quality of untouched photos, participants are prohibited from using add-on lenses and any image processing programs.

Ten will be chosen from the entries and get to win prizes. The entry with the best photo will win the grand prize of 15,000 PHP in cash and one (1) premium item from Beyond the Box. The 2nd place prize is 10,000 PHP in cash and one (1) premium item from Beyond the Box. The 3rd place prize is 5,000 Php worth of cash and one (1) premium item from Beyond the Box. The seven (7) remaining entries will win consolation prizes. Plus, winning photographs will be featured in an exhibit at Uptown Mall in Bonifacio Global City alongside the works of the contest judges.

To submit entries, participants must like Beyond the Box on Facebook fanpage, follow the Beyond the Box Instagram account, and send their entries to with their name, contact number, title & description of their photo. They must also upload their photographs on both Facebook and Instagram, tag @beyondtheboxph, and use the appropriate hashtags: #BeyondtheBoxPH & #BtBTaptoFocus.

There can only be one (1) entry per participant. Entry submission started last July 15, 2016 and the deadline of submissions is August 10, 2016. Winning entries will be announced on Beyond the Box’s social media accounts on August 15, 2016.
