The America I Know

In collaboration with The Aspen Institute, we’re very happy to announce a new category: The America I Know.

As America grapples with its self-identity, we want to see your understanding of this vast and varied land. Whether you’ve lived in America your whole life or you’ve only seen it in the movies, your unique perspective is requested. Are we healing or hurting, rising or falling, together or divided? What is the America you know, right now?

Open to participants worldwide. This year two selected winners will receive a trip to the thirteenth annual Aspen Ideas Festival at the Aspen Institute’s campus in Aspen, Colorado for 3 days from June 22-July 1, 2017. The winners of all categories will be exhibited during the festival.

IPPAWARDS pay tribute to the stunning imagery that can be captured with even the smallest of cameras, reminding us that the person behind the lens plays a significant part in the making of a picture.

Dozens of amateurs and professionals became award-winning photographers [...] for images they snapped on their iPhones, iPods or iPads. —Stav Ziv

The informal global contest has always attracted a swarm of amateur shutterbugs, but this year, some pros also got in on the game. —Caitlin Dewey

The winners of the iPhone Photography Awards [...] — won by stunning images all taken from the phone’s tiny camera. —Andrew Griffin

Per l’ottavo anno consecutivo l’IPPAWARD, [...] torna a ricordarci che insieme al soggetto inquadrato, è la persona che sta dietro all’obbiettivo l’ingrediente indispensabile per realizzare una bella foto, e non la macchina fotografica che usa.
