iPhone Photography Awards 2015 winners announced: see all the amazing images


The annual iPhone Photography Awards (IPPA) results are out, revealing the winners from one of the well-respected mobile photography competitions out there with categories spanning from portrait to buildings, animals, nature, and a lot more.

The interesting thing about the iPhone Photography Awards is that they have evolved to be more about the photographer and their work as a whole rather than just about a particular image. Naturally, it is a single image that is highlighted from each photog, but you also get links to their Instagram accounts to explore more of their images and get yourself immersed in their vision of the surrounding world.

We've picked the best images from a few categories to show you the very finest ones iPhone photographs from 2015, but you can also learn more about the photographers at the link right below.

Apple are competing in their own league without inviting the 3rd parties, and amusingly they are claiming they are the winner. LOL

Are you mental? Its a competition against the largest smartphone camera users on the globe lol. Like saying Lamborghini having a racing tournament and awarding a winner without inviting Ferrari hah. Butthurt fanboy is butthurt

Yes sure if apple was really competing with other brands they would not have won! Pureview phones would have killed iphones, and some pics are not raw they have been adjusted!

iPhone camera is great with a good color mixture of output and even it has 8mp it doesnt matter it can still beat your bogus camera with 16mp, 20mp, 40mp and up

The photos won awards for the environment but if you talk about the quality of the photo it's just poor .....

Say what you want, it's an excellent camera. I point and shoot and its 99% chance of getting the shot perfect in one click

Hey android, where is your photography awards ceremony? Samsung only releases 20 phones a month. Maybe they will get the camera right some time and they will be honored with a photography award?

lol Apple is pathetic. This is so typical of their marketing. Someone beats you at something fair and square and you do everything you can to convince the world that you're still on top. Only stupid sheep will fall for it. Looks like we have a few in here. The smart ones know the truth. The rest of you chose to believe EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT truth be damned.

Why so mad? It's for iPhone users to show their pics off. What does this have to do with android (apart from your own insecurities ) Also, I have a gs5 active and while it's a good phone it's just not for me-do you hate me now because of that?

I always enjoyed taking over saturated pictures with my Bloat 4. The higher mp count always proved to be gimmicky garbage

Samsung should just grab their own like award ceremony and call it "Photogs of the Galaxy" or something like that.

Haters can hate all they want to, but the iphone camera is one of the very best.

IPhone photography contest was good but pictures were not. My 8mp Xiaomi Redmi 1s camera can take pictures as good as the IPhone's, or I can make the most from it. Believe me the HDR is mind blowing guys and landscape photos come amazing. Just It falls back in low light photography. I would love to have a Global Photography contest with all companies as contenders. ✌✌

nothing spectacular there, my 1020 would improve on every one of those pics by a factor of 20%
