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.
The first place award went to Alexandre Weber for his shot of a woman wearing a colorful skirt in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil, while second place went to Huapeng Zhao for a photograph of a boy with a fish.
Along with the overall winners, IPPA also chooses winning photographs from a range of categories that include abstract, animals, architecture, children, floral, landscape, lifestyle, nature, news-events, other, panorama, people, portrait, series, still life, sunset, travel, and trees.
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 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.
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.
