“Style is a simple way of saying complicated things.” —Jean Cocteau

That makes it pretty clear, doesn’t it?

Okay, the judges are judging the beach/water images for the July issue of iPhotographer Magazine, as I write this! I do not envy their task.

Announcing the next Cover Contest for iPM: Fashion, as in all things personally fabulous, stylish, glamorous, unique, cool, hot, and, dare I say it, awesome, or alternatively, epic!

Time to dress up people: your friends/children/lovers/pets or YOURSELF and take some pictures! We will get to your stylish bedroom another day!

And one last thing:

This time we are going stipulate that images should be in portrait mode. They don’t have to be, but remember, we are using the winner on the cover. If a square or landscape image can be cropped well for portrait alignment, fine. We strongly suggest keeping this in mind as you assemble or shoot your entries.

Submission cost is five pictures for ten dollars.

Submission period opens June 24, 2015 and runs to August 15.

First Place Prize is $500, plus cover of the issue with mini-feature on you.

Second Place Prize is a hand-painted painting on canvas of your winning entry, approx. 18″x24″ from


Third Place Prize is a signed copy of David Scott Leibowitz’s great book, Mobile Digital Art.


Twenty-four runner-ups will be featured in a gallery in the magazine, linking to your website, Instagram, or Flickr feed (wherever you want).

All twenty-seven winning images will be featured in iPhotographer Magazine.


Theme for our November issue will “Animals.”

In January, the theme will be “Country Life.”

Stay tuned for details.

And … one more thing … I couldn’t resist!
