Since the launch of the iPhone line in 2007, Apple started the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) to celebrate the creativity of its users. Over the years, iPhones have featured amazing cameras, making user experience quite fancy.

The latest versions of the iPhone, especially the iPhone XS have amazing cameras, and with the right photographer, a whole photoshoot can be done in no time. For real.
The annual awards were held this week, with the winners in various categories announced. Accolades were given to both the photos and the photographers, and I must say, those pictures were all amazing. There will always be just one overall winner, and the grand prize went to “Big Sister”, a picture taken by Gabriella Cigliano.

Her picture was taken on the iPhone X in Zanzibar. According to her, she didn’t even know the two kids from Adams, but when they saw the picture she took of them, they were in glee.
I’m sure you must be thinking that it is guys with the latest iPhones that will win most of the categories. Well, that is what you would logically expect, since the newer versions have improved cameras. However, a winner with an iPhone 6s won the News/Events category. So, it’s not only about the camera, the creativity of the photographer is one factor to consider.
