Apple’s New Shot on iPhone ‘Color’ Campaign Including Jill Lian

I was so delighted to receive a wonderful message a few days ago from the very talented mobile photographer Jill Lian. One of her images is to be featured in Apple’s new Shot on iPhone series with the emphasis on Colour.

The campaign — entitled Colors, by the Apple creative team — can be found in what has got to be one of the broadest-reaching art exhibits in the world, splashed across billboards in the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, Russia, UAE, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Japan, Singapore, Hong Kong, India, Korea, China, Malaysia, New Zealand and Thailand.

Apple explained that this campaign has been built to showcase bright and vibrant colours allowing viewers to see around them on a daily basis.  

Huge congratulations to Jill Lian and thank you so much for your kind message, which I have attached below. These are the messages that I truly love to receive, thank you!

I have listed below the locations that this image will be posted to.

This is Jill’s message to me:

“Hi Joanne – I thought you’d be interested to hear that one of my iPhone photos was chosen for the new Apple Colors campaign that was just released. It will appear on 6 billboards in the U.S. And 19 others internationally.

Thanks for all the support you give me, through The App Whisperer. It gives me needed confidence!”
