The IPPAWARDS 2021, better known as the iPhone Photography Awards, reward the best photos taken with an iPhone or iPad. In this edition, the best photograph of the year has been taken with an iPhone 7. A model who has been behind him for almost five years, showing that he still has a lot to say on the photographic front.
The iPhone 7 as the winner of the IPPAWARDS 2021
The winning photographers of this 2021 edition can already be consulted. The winner of the Grand Prize is Hungarian Istvan Kerekes, with the cover photo. In it, you can see two shepherds in transylvania, Romania, holding two lambs each. They are in a frozen wasteland with several factories in the distance and a power line to the right, playing on the contrast between the traditional and the modern.
The most striking thing about this photo is not the setting, but the iPhone with which it is taken. Kerekes has used an iPhone 7 to capture the scene, an iPhone that will be five years old this September. service. It is one more example that for a good photo what matters is the photographer and not so much the device or camera.
Next up are Sharan Shetty from India, Dan Liu from China and Jeff Rayner from the US. Each has used an iPhone X, an iPhone 11 Pro Max, and again an iPhone X, respectively. Again, equipment that is not the latest model.
