The cameras that we have in our devices have evolved at a dizzying rate. The quality of the sensors and lenses make amateur users able to make incredible images. What’s more, many users already prefer to have a more powerful camera on their mobile instead of buying an external camera. Every year an international contest called iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) that began its journey in 2007. A few hours ago, the winning images of the thirteenth edition of both the general category and the 19 subcategories of the contest were published.

These are the winners of the 13th iPhone Photography Awards

Today, we proudly announce the winners of the iPhone 2020 Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS). This year the 13th annual awards ceremony is held with presentations by thousands of photographers from around the world. Dozens of winning photographs reflect powerful worldviews, from vast landscapes to a single tree, from city streets to remote desolation, from work and hardship to a private moment in the sun.

From the official headquarters of the iPhone Photography Awards in New York, the jury and the team behind the contest have announced the winners of all categories. Among them are images captured with an iPhone 6, a device that is far from other winners who used an iPhone X and an XS Max. That is why the jury not only values ​​the terminal with which the images are captured, but the technique, the composition and the lights. These are the winners of this thirteenth edition:

  • Dimpy Bhalotia, United Kingdom: Grand Prize Winner. Photographer of the year. Flying Boys. Location: Banaras, India. Shot on iPhone.
  • Artyom Baryshau, Belarus: 1st Place, Photographer of the Year. Without walls. Location: India. Shot on iPhone 6

  • Saif Hussain, Iraq: 3rd Place, Photographer of the Year. Sheikh of Youth. Location: Baghdad, Iraq. Shot on iPhone X

The award-winning images in the rest of the subcategories can be found on the official website of the IPPAWARDS in the ‘Winners Gallery’ section. In addition, it must be remembered that each of the winners of the subcategories takes a gold bar, literally, of the most recognizable private gold mint in the world. On the other hand, those who are in second and third place in these subcategories will win a platinum ingot.
