The Mobile Photography Awards has published its tenth annual selection of the best works of international photography captured on mobile devices. Founded in 2011, it is the longest-running international competition for photos shot and edited exclusively on smartphones and tablets.
The judging panel, which you can see here, selected the winners of various categories from over 5,700 total submitted photos from more than 75 countries. The Mobile Photography Awards features 20 themed categories including Landscapes, Portraits, Black & White, Photojournalism, Nature, and Wildlife.
The grand prize winner, and recipient of the $3,000 cash prize, was awarded to Dan Liu, a photographer from China, for his photo series below, all captured on the iPhone 11 Pro Max:
“The winners of the 10th Annual Mobile Photography Awards are a testament to another year in the rapid evolution of mobile phone cameras.” says MPA founder Daniel Berman, a photographer, and filmmaker based near Toronto, Canada. “The iPhone is still the most widely used by our entrants but this year we saw a larger variety of camera phones than ever before. Each competition we hold sees the quality of the submitted photos grow by leaps and bounds.”
Below are the winners of each of the other categories (of note, Liu’s “On Inle Lake” above also won the Silhouettes category):
The Mobile Photography Awards says that it annually sees entries from more than 75 countries and since 2011 has produced over 35 gallery shows produced across the world. The MPA offers photographers and artists opportunities for exhibits, fine art sales, and annual cash prizes.
