If you’ve got a smartphone, chances are you’ve documented some part of your life with it. Maybe it was a meal, maybe a sunset, maybe a trip to Edinburgh or San Francisco or Cape Town—some place where the scenery and the lighting and the beauty of our planet trick you just long enough into thinking, “Hey, I’m pretty good at this, maybe I could take photos for a living.” These people are here to remind you that you’ve still got some work to do.
The iPhone Photography Awards annually honors the best of the best photos shot by iPhone owners around the world (sorry, Galaxy owners). Accepting entries from over 140 countries, the winners are divided up into categories such as still life, animal, architecture, and more. This year’s grand prize went to Jashin Salam of Bangladesh for his entry, Displaced. The first, second, and third place awards went to Alexandre Weber of Switzerland (Baiana in Yellow and Blue), Huapeng Zhao of China (Eye to Eye), and Zarni Myo Win of Myanmar (I Want to Play).
