They say 13 is an unlucky number, but the 2020 iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) proves the theory wrong. The 13th annual competition winners have been announced, and they’re absolutely gorgeous. I always love seeing winners of this contest because they prove what I often say – gear doesn’t matter, it’s all about the photographer.
The Grand Prize Winner and Photographer of the Year Award went to street photographer Dimpy Bhalotia from the UK for her image Flying Boys. First, Second and Third Place Photographer of the Year Awards go to Artyom Baryshau from Belarus for the photo No Walls, Geli Zhao from China for an untitled image of sheets catching wind on a cloudy day, and Saif Hussain from Iraq for the photo Sheikh Of Youth.
Top-three winners in an additional 18 categories were awarded to photographers from all over the world. The categories are as follows:
- News & Events
- Still Life
