Here are the 20 most beautiful photos taken with an iPhone in 2017

Today, one can be a photographer and not own a camera strictly speaking. And yes, a good one smartphone does the job well when it comes to taking pictures, even in an artistic setting. The communication campaign Apple which takes pictures taken on the iPhone by users to display them in the subway are a good example.

It is within this framework that theIPPAWARDS (iPhone Photography Awards) which aims to reward the most beautiful photos taken with the iPhone. A contest that exists for 10 years and who just revealed a few days ago his laureates, that we list you below. A Grand Prix, three photographers of the year and the best photos by category. Magnificent !

Precision : difficult to know if Apple is behind this contest in one way or another. It is obviously a huge advertisement for the iPhone so it would not be surprising.
