The iPhone Photography honors came into existence 11 years back when the popularity of taking pics making use of an iPhone begun to augment.
Every year, the competition obtains hoards of entries.
Photographers can place their entries under 20 different sections, comprising news and incidents, landscape painting, still life and journey. Besides the frontrunners selected from those sections, the reviewers also honor two “photographer of the year” awards comprising grand prize and first place.
The rivalry is the initial and longest-running rivalry for people clicking pics making use of their iPhones (or iPads).
Kenan Aktulun, the originator of the honors, told media people why he created the event, “I started the awards as a hobby when I got my first iPhone. I’ve been doing photography and working in the user experience design field for long time. I was fascinated by changing user behavior with the introduction of the iPhone. Almost every iPhone user I observed was using the camera for capturing moments. They were not necessarily thinking about photography but taking snapshots of the moments that meant something to them. My idea was to create a platform to celebrate the creativity of the iPhone users.”
2018’s grand prize for photographer of the year got honored to Jashim Salam, and first position was honored to Alexandre Weber.
Jashim, a graduate of Pathshala, the South Asian Media Institute, is a well known documentary photographer who is based in Bangladesh,.
