About the iPhone Photography Awards
As the first and longest running iPhone photography competition, iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) was founded in 2007 to celebrate the creativity of iPhone photographers since the iPhone first began to inspire, excite and engage users worldwide. Every year since then, IPPAWARDS has carefully selected the best captures among thousands of entries received from proud iPhone photographers. With participants frommore than 140 countries across the globe, the jury implements a multi-step process to announce The Photographers of the Year Award. The shots captured by the iPhone photographers bring to life powerful worldviews, from vast landscapes to a single tree, from city streets to remote desolation, from toil and hardship to a private moment in the sun.
