The Winners of the 11th Annual Mobile Photography Awards


The Mobile Photography Awards have announced its 11th annual selections for the best works of international photography captured with smartphones.

The Mobile Photography Awards, founded in 2011, is the longest-running international competition for photos shot and edited exclusively on smartphones and tablets. The judging panel selected winners from over 5,500 submissions from over 90 countries across 12 themes including Landscapes, Portraits, Black & White, Visual FX, and Street Photography. Each category winner will receive a cash prize of $500, with the Grand Prize winner taking home $3,000.

“The 11th Annual Mobile Photography Awards stand as a testament to another year in the ongoing story and evolution of mobile phone cameras,” says The Mobile Photography Awards founder Daniel Berman, a photographer, and filmmaker based near Toronto, Canada.

“The iPhone is still the most widely used by our entrants but this year we’ve seen a huge variety of camera phones used for our winning photos. The work we see each year always gets better.”

Grand Prize Winner Liu KunKun

This year’s grand prize winner has been awarded to Shanghai-based amateur photographer Liu KunKun using an Apple iPhone 12 Pro Max.

“I try to dismantle the original order of the landscape, and then restack and reorganize, with a simple visual language to express new abstract imagery and explore the boundaries of photography,” KunKun says of his work.

“He has a great mastery of geometry and perspective and taken together with color and minimalism he transmits a
photographic, personal style into his own voice,” Mobile Photography Awards jury member Rodrigo Rivas said about KunKun’s work.
