Apple has revealed the winners of its global ‘shot on an iPhone’ contest.
This January, the tech giant asked participants to submit images to social media using the hashtag #ShotoniPhone.
Now the top ten images to impress the judging panel – which included the official White House photographer during the Obama administration – have been announced.
The winning shots, ranging from captures of stunning mountains ranges to colourful urban spots, will be featured on billboards in select cities, in Apple retail stores and online.
Scroll down to see the photos, which Apple says ‘capture colorful city scenery, curious animals, creative reflections, the beauty of the ordinary and more’…
This photo by Alex Jiang was shot on an iPhone XS Max in Hong Kong. The judges said of the shot: ‘The narrative in architecture. There is actually life behind the surface of an average apartment building in an unknown city. Vivid colors and a perfect composition with the basketball board right in the middle! Great eye’
