Just about everyone uses their phone to take photos now-a-days. It’s no wonder that their are entire competitions built around mobile photography. The most noted is iPhone Photo Awards (IPPA) which has just accounted the 2016 winners. The rules to enter are as follows, “All images must be taken with an iPhone, iPod or an iPad. The photos should not be altered in Photoshop or any desktop image processing program.

The use of any iPhone/iPad App is permissible. iPhone add-on lenses can be used. In some cases we may ask the original image to verify that it’s taken with an iPhone, iPad or iPod. The photos that can not be verified are disqualified.” Think you have what it takes? Head over to the website to enter, or view the winning photos below.
