With alot of people walking around with an 8 megapixel camera embedded into their smart phone, it’s easy to think you’re something of an Annie Leibovitz or a Mario Testino.
Or at least try to be.
Now 54 people are being recognized for the photography skills they have managed photographers behind their iPhones.
Now in its seventh year, the iPhone Photography Awards (IPP AWARDS) have selected finalists from 17 countries – Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Mexico, Romania, Russia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, United Kingdom and the United States – with a winner to be announced on June 15.
Thousands of submissions are sent in every year and winners of three separate categories are selected by a jury, and it costs $3.50 to submit a photo.
The finalists that were selected represent the best of different categories, such as architecture, art, flowers, children and, ofcourse, food.

The finalists that were selected
represent the best of different categories, such as architecture, art,
flowers, children and, ofcourse, food.
The IPPA awards are not affiliated with apple, but the contest has been around almost as long as the iPhone itself.
The contest is divided in 16 categories: animals, architecture, children, flowers, food, landscape, lifestyle, nature, news/events, people, seasons, still life, sunset, travel, trees and others.
All entries will compete in one of the categories, as well as in the overall contest.
All entries compete for the prestigious IPP Photographer of the Year Award title, and the top 3 will receive a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad Mini.
The top entry from each of the 16 IPP categories will win a Gold Bar from the most recognizable private gold mint in the world.

I almost didn’t read/look at the article after the beginning sentence, as there was a GLARING misspelling …. it is A LOT, DM, NOT ALOT.(I had a middle school English teacher who would make anyone who misspelled A LOT as one word stay after class and write A on one board and LOT on another, 100 times. I think the author of the article needs to do the same!)

I have said this every time DM shows us photo contests: I am so glad I never have to choose a winner. I am unable to. They are all so good. Really great pics.

This is fantastic proof that a great photographer can take really good pictures, even with a mediocre camera. ———- While these shots are very good, when looked at closely they all show signs of graining, colour hue and saturation being off, lighting problems, etc…. But despite the limitations of the camera, the pictures are great. ———— MUCH better than the Sony contest shots posted last month.

No. 10 would have made a great album cover from the ’70s!

I took that exact carnival-ride one, albeit in color, at my local fair.
