The iPhone Photography Awards was founded by photographer and designer Kenan Aktulun in 2007 when the first iPhone appeared. Aktulun enjoys the authenticity and emotion captured in spontaneous iPhone photos and created the contest to facilitate the sharing of these genuine moments.
Mobilographers from more than 140 countries submitted their best images this year. The grand prize winner is an image entitled ‘Displaced’, taken by Jashim Salam from Bangladesh, shows a group of children at a screening about health and sanitation.
The contest is open to everyone, not just professional artists or photographers. Amongst this year’s winners, there were graphic designers, architects, a historian, an engineer, and a software analyst. Entrants are not allowed to use desktop editing software, like Photoshop, but IOS software can be used to edit the images.
Have a look at some of our this year’s favorite finalist.
Entries for the 12th Annual iPhone photography contest are accepted until March 31, 2019.
