    For this week's photo contest, we're going to celebrate the new design and makeover given to the iMore forums by updating our avatars with some killer photos -- and giving away over $140 in prices! Although self-portraits are extremely popular for people to use as their avatar, this is not a requirement. Pick a subject that reflects you, get creative, and capture that awesome image that translates into the perfect avatar.

    Huge congrats to Catastrophology for winning the iOS 6 panorama photo contest!

    The prize: Olloclip Lens System, Glif tripod mount, and $50 iTunes gift card

    The rules

    The rules of entry are very simple. The photo 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 CS6! If you have external lens accessories, 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!

    [B]Additional Rule: In addition to the normal set of rules, this contest also requires that you set the photo as your iMore avatar and share the photo in this thread.[/B]

    The contest begins now and ends next Monday, October 15 at 5p Pacific.

    As I like Anonymity this Photo is not of my Face ;-p but it describes me well. "Cream Egg" is because my Birth date is @ April, Coffee Machine is because I love Coffee (my Aliases on the iNet. I am some form of Coffee, even Purchased Billing & Postage), "Costa Coffee" because it's my specific Coffee House, on a Wooden surface because I'm a very Natural Person. :-)

    Taken on iPhone 4S, App Camera+ Photo & Edit (DOF Effect)

    I was thinking for a long time!
    The avatar contest was in the back of my mind. A constant Flickr, a low hum, reminding me to enter. And then, inspiration struck! With a little bit of the iterate (not happy nation) logo design sprinkled on...
    Original shot in iPhone 4S, edited in snapseed and text added in Tiled

    Original:
