I published this post earlier as news of the the IPPAWARD winners was published to their site. It seems that this was a mistake, on their part, they did not intend to publish this when they did. So, therefore, the information that you see below may not remain/be current and may also not be accurate as the final official announcement – according to the organisers. As soon as the official announcement is made, we will let you know…

 

The iPhone Photography Awards™ (IPPAWARDS) is proud to announce the winners of the 8th Annual Awards. They were selected from thousands of entries submitted by iPhone photographers from 120 countries around the world.

The three Photographers of the Year Awards go to Michal Koralewski of Poland, David Craik of the United Kingdom and Yvonne Lu of the United States.
