The 2021 IPPAWARDS, better known as the iPhone Photography Awards, recognize the best photos taken with an iPhone or iPad. In this edition, the best photo of the year was 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 in terms of photography.

IPhone 7 as winner of IPPAWARDS 2021

The winning photographers of this 2021 edition are already available for consultation. The winner of the Grand Prix is ​​the Hungarian Istvan Kerekes, with the cover photo. We see two shepherds in Transylvania, Romania, each holding two lambs. 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.

First Prize for Best Photographer, by Sharan Shetty.

The most striking thing about this photo is not the frame, but the iPhone with which it is taken. Kerekes used an iPhone 7 to capture the scene, an iPhone that will have five years of service in September. This is one more example than a good photo, what matters is the photographer and not so much the camera or the camera.
