Apple announced the iPhone Night mode photo challenge that will be held around the world.

You can publish your works until January 29. By March 4, 2020, a special panel of 10 experts will select the five best shots received from participants who are over 18 years old. The winning photo will be published in a gallery on Apple Newsroom,, and Apple Instagram account(@apple). They may also appear in digital campaigns, at Apple Stores, on billboards, or in a third-party photo exhibition.

Candidates can share their photos on Instagram, Twitter and Weibo using hashtags #ShotoniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge, as well as send them to the mailbox.

Apple emphasized that winners will get a cash reward in the amount of a license fee for using a photo. Earlier in the previous photo contest, the company did not initially promise winners money for the victory. Still, after criticism from professional photographers, the company added a cash prize for the winners.

Apple offers some tips for using the 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.
