Hey PhotoPillers!

We’re super happy to announce that we’ve brought the PhotoPills Awards to PhotoPills 2.2!

For the first time, you can get inspired following the competition from the app. And why not? Also participate and become a Legend...

Note: Remember that if you're an Android user, you can join our Android notification list here. We'll send you an email when PhotoPills is available on Google Play. Hopefully by the end of this year :)

We created the PhotoPills Awards because we know the huge amount of time, energy and love you put in your photos. And because we want to HONOR them, SHOW them to the World, and REWARD you with up to $6,600 in cash prizes every year. Period! :)

And now you can comfortably submit your photos directly from the new Awards button available in PhotoPills (menu My Stuff).

How it works

It’s easy and Free!

Unlimited photos and past photos allowed!

First, store your photos in your iPhone/iPad. Learn how to do it here!

And second, submit your best photos in 3 categories directly from the Submit button in your PhotoPills app (Awards):

  • Night: Proof your skills under the dark sky. Send us your Milky Ways, star trails, meteor showers, planet conjunctions, Iss, northern lights, lightpainting photos...
  • Moon: It’s all about the moon! Send us your full Moons, thin Moons, Supermoons, Moon Silhouettes, Moonrises, Moonsets, lunar eclipses...
  • Sun: Any photo that does not involve the Moon or the night sky. Send us your sunrises, sunsets, golden hours, blue hours, twilights, solar eclipses, sun silhouettes or any photo where you carefully planned natural light.

No matter if you’re in landscape, astro, night, travel, portrait, architecture, wedding, product or fashion photography. Imagination has no boundaries. We want to see them all!

You’ll find all the image requirements here.

Temporarily, you can also submit your photos via email. Just send the image, location, exif (camera, focal length, aperture, shutter speed, ISO) and a short description to Soon, this option will not be available. It’s easier and more comfortable for everyone to participate via your PhotoPills app.
