The competition is the first, as well as the longest-running, competition for folks who take photos with their iPhones (or iPads).

Kenan Aktulun, the founder of the awards, told In Sight why he created the event:

“I started the awards as a hobby when I got my first iPhone. I’ve been doing photography and working in the user experience design field for long time. I was fascinated by changing user behavior with the introduction of the iPhone. Almost every iPhone user I observed was using the camera for capturing moments. They were not necessarily thinking about photography but taking snapshots of the moments that meant something to them. My idea was to create a platform to celebrate the creativity of the iPhone users.”

Tim Cook Tweeted to congratulate the winners.

Other winners include Alexandre Weber from Switzerland, Huapeng Zhao from China, and Zarni Myo Win from Myanmar.
