The iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) is an international photography contest for images captured with an iPhone. The award was founded in 2007, the same year the first iPhone was released. The contest is held annually, with one grand prize winner and three overall winners, as well as three winners for each of 20 subcategories, , including news and events, landscape, still life and travel. In addition to the winners chosen from those categories, the judges also award two “photographer of the year” prizes: grand prize and first place.
Every year since 2007, IPPAWARDS has selected the very best shots among thousands of images submitted by iPhone photographers from more than 140 countries around the world. Winners are selected by a jury in a multi-step process and “The Photographers of the Year” are then awarded.
The Awards select winners across a range of categories from photos that are submitted from all over the world. In addition to a Grand Prize, First Place, Second Place, and Third Place overall winners, 16 other categories feature top three winners that award photographers from almost every corner of the world including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, The Netherlands, San Marino, Poland, United Kingdom, and the United States.
