    Texture is all around us and in almost everything we touch and see. From paint peeling off a brick wall to a knotted oak desk. Textured surfaces not only make things around us more interesting, they make for great subjects in photos. This week your task is to go out with and capture something that shows off texture. Everything has it so it may seem easy but don't be fooled! The prize this week will go to the person that can showcase it in the most creative and beautiful way!

    The contest begins today and ends Tuesday, August 20th, at 10pm Eastern time.

    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!


    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.

    The prize: iStabilizer Dolly for iPhone

    Aside from a thumbs up from the entire iMore crew, this week will be giving away an iStabilizer Dolly for iPhone which will help you capture sweeping panoramas and cinematic video shots like the pros. The iStabilizer Dolly will allow you to use any flat surface to stabilize your iPhone in order to create great looking movies or panos with less room for error.

    Not only does it fit virtually any iPhone, but any other smartphone and even some professional cameras as well.

    How to enter

    To enter simply attach your photos as a post in this thread. That's all there is to it!

    Good luck!

    Here are a few entries for the texture contest.

    I loved the texture of this sawed off tree when I visited a local park. I added a leaf to it to create the still life scene.

    Every time I try to submit my photo ill click on the picture and then it loads and takes me back to the top of the screen. Very frustrating. Anyone have any reasons why it's doing that
