The iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) is proud to announce the winners of our 15th annual competition. Chosen from thousands of submissions from all over the world, many of this year’s winning shots depict beauty rising out of isolation and honor photography’s ability to build bridges across lost connections.

We especially congratulate this year’s Grand Prize Winner, Antonio Denti of Italy, who receives the Photographer of the Year Award for his image, The Kid of Mosul, a moment of tenderness in the dusty rubble of war.

The First Place Photographer of the Year Award goes to Rachel Sela of Sweden for her image, Anti-Social Distancing, which turns masking up into an act of theater.

The Second Place prize is for Kelley Dallas of United States and her image Girl with the Violin. And the Third Place Photographer of the Year Award goes to Glenn Homann of Australia for his photo, Wasted.

Top-three winners in an additional 16 categories were awarded to photographers from almost every corner of the world, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Egypt, France, Greece, India, Italy, Japan, Netherlands, San Marino, Poland, United Kingdom, United States.
