Jashim Salam - Bangladesh, Grand Prize Winner, Photographer of the Year


Its been 10 years since Steve Jobs unveiled the iPhone and things have never been the same. Uber, Whatsapp, and countless other apps which we cannot imagine spending a day without all owe their genesis to the iPhone. In the past decade, the iPhone has also completely revolutionized the photography industry, starting with the original iPhone which packed a humble 2 megapixel camera to the current dual lens 12 megapixel camera on the iPhone X which is touted as a DSLR replacement. Started in 2007, the iPhone photography awards have been showcasing talented photographers and inspiring others that you do not need an expensive camera set up to shoot a great photo.

For the 2018 iPhone photography awards thousands of photos were submitted from 140 countries. The above photo was the grand prize winner, shot with an iPhone 7 by Jashin Salam it shows the Rohingya children watching a film about health and sanitation in Bangladesh. Here are the 58 best photos from across the 16 categories, its interesting to note that the majority of winning photos were not shot on the iPhone X but on the iPhone 7S and 6S.
