Thinking you need a fancy and expensive camera to take great photos? You’re wrong! Many iPhone users around the world who participated in the 2016 iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) can prove it.
Recently, the 9th Annual IPPAWARDS winners were announced and the best photos of the competition are absolutely brilliant. These amazing pictures remind us that the person behind the lens plays the most important part in photography.
“The iPhone is like a pen in our hands. Good or bad, the pen itself will never write poems, but the poets will,” said this year’s The Grand Prize Winner Siyuan Niu from China.
The iPhone Photography Awards were founded in 2007, the year the phone was launched. The photos in this competition must have been taken on an iPhone, iPad or iPod, and can be edited using only apps on iOS (no desktop software is allowed).
Take a look at this year’s best pictures below and maybe they will inspire you to take an amazing photo with your own smartphone too!
