Winners announced for the 2016 iPhone Photography Awards
Every year, professional and amateur photographers around the world compete for the annual iPhone Photography Awards. This year's competition was the ninth annual event. Participants use cameras found on iOS devices only, and can use certain apps to enhance the pictures. While the use of Photoshop is disallowed, other third party apps like VSCO and Lightroom can be employed.

Out of the thousands of pictures entered in the contest from 139 countries, the grand prize photo was taken by a Chinese photographer named Siyuan Niu. His photo, "Man and the Eagle," showed a 70-year old man staring at his golden eagle with the Tianshan Mountains in the background.

Poland's Patryk Kuleta of Poland finished first, while second and third place went to Americans Robin Robertis and Carolyn Mara Borlenghu. They will each receive an award announced at a later date, Meanwhile, 18 photographers were given gold bars for finishing first in specific categories like Nature, Lifestyle, News and Events, Panorama, Series, Still Life and others.
