These are the winners of the 2018 iPhone Photography Awards

Grand Prize Winner, Photographer of the Year
The iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS), was founded in 2007, making it the longest running iPhone photo competition in the world. Now in its 11th year, the winners of the IPPAWARDS have just been announced, and looking at the winning image it should be pretty clear that you don't always need a DSLR and big lens to capture outstanding photographs.
The Grand Prize winning image is called “Displaced" and shows Rohingya children watching an awareness film about health and sanitation near Tangkhali refugee camp in Ukhiya, Bangladesh. It was captured by photographer Jashim Salam on an iPhone 7.
Swiss photographer Alexandre Weber's contribution "Baiana in yellow and blue" was captured on an iPhone 6S in Salvador de Bahia, Brazil and was awarded 1st prize in the Photographer of the Year category.
