As millions of users across the globe capture their everyday lives with the sophisticated cameras on their iPhones, the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPA) offers a stage for the most creative to shine. Though not an official Apple event, the IPPA has been celebrating the art of iPhone photography since 2007.

Participation Criteria: A Worldwide Call

IPPA extends its call to iPhone and iPad photographers around the globe. While the competition accepts photographs from personal archives, they should not have been previously published, with the exception of those shared on personal Facebook or Instagram accounts.

Submission Guidelines: Celebrating Authenticity

The IPPA emphasises authenticity, allowing minimal alterations using only iOS apps. Photos edited with desktop image processing programs such as Photoshop are not acceptable. iPhone add-on lenses, however, can be utilised to enhance image capture.

Rewarding Excellence: A Trove of Prizes

The competition offers an array of coveted prizes. The grand prize winner will be awarded an iPad Air, while the top three winners will receive an Apple Watch each. Moreover, the first-place winners across the 14 categories stand a chance to win a gold bar from a highly renowned private gold mint. Runners-up are not left behind either, with second and third-place winners receiving a platinum bar from the same mint.

Diverse Categories: A Platform for Every Passion

The competition encompasses a broad range of categories, including Abstract, Animals, Architecture, Children, Citylife/Cityscape, Landscape, Lifestyle, Nature, People, Portrait, Series (3 images), Still Life, Travel, and Other.

Registration Details: Open Till March 31, 2024

Participants are required to pay an entry fee per image, which ranges from $5.50 (roughly ₹470) for a single image to $135.50 for submitting 50 images. The submission deadline is set for March 31, 2024, allowing ample time for aspiring participants.
