    Each year, the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPA) highlights the best photographs captured with an iPhone over the course of the year. This year's winners were announced yesterday, with the winning photographs selected from thousands of entries submitted by iPhone photographers from more than 140 countries.

    The Grand Prize Photographer of the Year Award went to Jashim Salam, who submitted a photograph called "Displaced," captured in Bangladesh.

    Apple CEO Tim Cook took to Twitter this evening to congratulate the award winners.


    Apple's iPhones are popular photography tools, and Apple has maintained a long running "Shot on iPhone" ad campaign to showcase photos and videos captured with the iPhone. IPPA award winning photos were captured using a range of devices, from the iPhone 5 to the iPhone X.

    All of the winning photographs from 2018 are displayed on the IPPA website.

    The iPhone truly is an amazing camera.
    The portrait mode depth features can create amazingly compelling photographs all from the power of this slim piece of glass in my pocket.

    I often say it’s not fair how well the iPhone can take photos, rivalling the output of something like my Canon 6D.

    And of course as they say, sometimes the best camera is the one you have on you.

    In another news, the first pic of a fully assembled iPhone 11 leaked online should get an award by Macrumors fans.

    If it’s rivalling the output from your 6D, you’re doing it wrong.

    Wonder why Google doesn’t do the same thing with their Pixel phone.

    Well that's true and since iPhone has a good camera the vast majority of time it is the only camera I have with me.
    I love taking pictures with my DSLR, but since I've become a father I found out there is too much you need to carry around for the baby and a DSLR is really inconvenient when you travel. I sometimes take portrait of her at home or in the garden and they're way better than the one I can shot with portrait mode on my 8+, but many of my favourite pics are taken with the iPhone because I simply didn't have the DSLR with me to capture that moment.

    For that grand prize picture, do you think that's either heavily cropped or used a lens? I don't a lot about photography but I think that would be a wide lens that would capture subjects like that?

    Or the photo doesn't gain much from the extra power of a large DSLR? This is a weirdly narrow and dismissive comment.
