    Whether you live in the city or the country, we see abandoned structures all over. Whether it's a half torn down barn or a city building that hasn't been used in years, there is no denying that they make awesome subjects for photos. This weeks' challenge is to get out there and find them!

    As a side note, please be mindful to property you do not own and don't ever do anything to put yourself at risk. In other words, don't go breaking into any buildings just for a photo. Photos from safe distances without putting yourself at risk is what we're asking for.

    The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, October 15th at 10 p.m. Eastern time.

    The prize: A $30 iTunes gift card

    Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, we'll be giving the winner of this week's contest a $30 iTunes gift card to help them stock up on the photo editing apps of their choice, or any other apps they'd like!

    The rules

    Submitted photos must have been taken with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

    We'll check the EXIF data of the original file to verify and any edits must have been done with an iPhone or iPad app. No Photoshop, Lightroom, or other external editing programs! If you have external lens accessories such as an Olloclip or other snap-on lens, you are more than welcome to use them.

    You can submit as many photos as you'd like, but remember, this is a contest, so make sure you submit your best work!

    Resources

    Now, before you run off to take your photo, remember that it's not technical skill alone that will claim this prize. Even if you're not the best photographer (yet!), a great eye and a great subject can still get you the win.

    However, a little help can never hurt, so make sure you check out our iPhone photography series for some tips.

    How to submit

    To enter the contest, just post a reply to this thread with your photos attached. That's all there is to it!

    I call this picture Broken Beauty.

    I was walking down the street to the post office when I saw her. Abandoned and alone. Unlivable but still offering so much. I wish I could fix her up and live there. Soo beautiful. So lost.

    Ok, here goes. An abandoned mill in my hometown of Fredericksburg, VA. This crumbling edifice, half covered in ivy, is the perfect submission for the Halloween season - it's right out of a Lovecraft story. And re: remaining safe by not entering. Are you f'in kidding me? Dude, I am familiar with all horror movie traditions. Wild horses couldn't get me into this place. Anyway, here it is:

    This is a building I saw from the people mover in Detroit. Pretty sad what's happened to a once great city.
