With the advent of ever-improving smartphone camera technology, the digital SLR’s exclusive dominance in the world of quality photography is slowly crumbling. Smartphone users around the world are proving that a good photographer’s eye is far more important for taking a good photograph than your photographic hardware, so the IPPAWARDS (iPhone Photography Awards) were created to recognize their efforts.
The photos in this competition, which was organized by Apple, need to have been taken with an iPhone, iPod or iPad and cannot have been edited on any way by desktop software (device-based apps are allowed).
