Apple Agrees to Compensate Winners of ‘Shot on iPhone Competition’

Share

Many of the Mobile Photographers within TheAppWhisperer community have not only submitted their images to Apple’s ‘Shot on iPhone Competition’ but have also won and their photographs have graced billboards around the world in earlier years. Apple has faced criticism though for not compensating winners, suggesting perhaps that they felt exposure should be enough. However, Apple have now backtracked and will compensate winners with licensing fees. A direct quote from Apple reads:

Apple believes strongly that artists should be compensated for their work. Photographers who shoot the final 10 winning photos will receive a licensing fee for use of such photos on billboards and other Apple marketing channels”.

The contest is open now until February 7 2019 – so hurry to enter if you haven’t yet. To enter, tag your image on Twitter and/or Instagram with #ShotoniPhone

Judges this year include Peter Souza – Obama White House Photographer, Austin Mann – one of our contributors, Luisa Door, Annet de Graaf, Chen Man, Phil Schiller, Kaiann Drance, Broooks Kraft, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, Arem Duplessis and Jon McCormack – the leader of Apple’s camera team.
