The iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) has announced the winners of its 2022 contest. Believe it or not, the competition is celebrating its jubilee this year: It’s been almost 15 years, just like the iPhones. I feel a little old now.
However, the 15th annual contest received thousands of submissions from around the world, and selected the best of the best. Italy’s Antonio Denti won the Grand Prize, but there are many other stunning photos among the category winners. So, let’s check them out!
Antonio Denti was declared Composite Photographer of the Year for his image Child of Mosul. It shows a “moment of tenderness in the dusty rubble of war”. In addition, many of this year’s winning shots depict human relationships in various forms. I think we are all fed up with isolation, diseases and wars.
First Place Photographer of the Year Award goes to Rachel Seda from Sweden for her image anti social distance, This interesting image turns into an act of theater. The second place award goes to Kelly Dallas of America and her image girl with violin, And the Third Place Photographer of the Year award goes to Glenn Homan of Australia for his photograph, Ruined,
The top three winners in an additional 16 categories were awarded to photographers from almost every corner of the world. But apart from shooting with an iPhone, they have one thing in common: They captured suggestive moments in their photos.
