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.
