Don’t assume you have to buy the most expensive camera equipment to take award-worthy shots — the iPhone Photography Awards just announced its 2020 winners, and the images are breathtaking.
The competition, which started in 2007, gives awards for the best images taken on an iPhone or iPad each year. The photos cannot have been published previously (except on personal social media accounts), and must not be edited in Photoshop, though the competition states that iOS editing apps are fine to use.
The competition announces a Grand Prize winner every year, as well as winners in 19 other categories, including Photographer of the Year, Abstract, Architecture, People, and Nature. Each winner receives a gold bar from a private gold mint.
This year, the Grand Prize-winning photograph came from a photographer from the UK, Dimpy Bhalotia, who took a stunning shot of boys jumping into the Ganges. Another incredible win, in the People category, came from Omar Lucas, a Peruvian photographer who used an iPhone 4 to take an image of three women knitting.
The full list of awards can be found on the iPhone Photography Awards site.
