The iPhone Photography Awards 2013 contest has just ended with Scotland-based Holly Wesley as the Photographer of the Year 2013.
When the iPhone first became official, a bunch of people noticed that this type of smartphone was going to be the greatest of them all. Modern mobile devices are fun to use and they get better each year.
iPhone Photography Awards 2013 photo contest winners revealed
The iPhone has shaped the world of smartphones like no other, but it has also brought a huge contribution to the world of photography. And so, the iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) has been founded in 2007.
It is dubbed as the longest and most prestigious iPhone-related photography contest. This year, it has reached its sixth edition, while amassing thousands of photos submitted by iPhoneographers worldwide.
Going through all pictures is not easy, but the judges have finally announced the winners of the 2013 edition.
Holly Wesley is the iPhone Photographer of the Year 2013
As one would image, all pictures must be captured with an iPhone. Well, this is exactly what the winners have done, but the best of them has been Holly Wesley, who is based in Argyll, Scotland.
Holly is now the iPhone Photographer of the Year 2013, thanks to an impressive close-up shot of a horse and a great background dominated by a cloud and a field.
Second place has gone to Brolin Roney from Orem, US, who has captured a photo at the Festival of Colors, while third place has been awarded to Bob Weil, thanks to a beautiful shot of a lady in red walking in heavy snow.
