Late last month, Apple announced a photography challenge that’s open to all iPhone users across the globe. Called the Shot on iPhone Challenge, iPhone photographers were tasked to capture the most remarkable, most creative photos with the world’s most popular camera.
And now we have the winners. The 10 selected winners will be featured on billboards in select cities, in Apple retail stores and online. Apple said the winning shots came from a range of models, from the iPhone Xs Max to iPhone 7.
The top 10 winners came from countries including Germany , Belarus, Israel and the US, as well as Singapore, the only winner from Asia.
The photos capture colourful city scenery, curious animals, creative reflections, the beauty of the ordinary and more.
The esteemed international panel of judges comprised Pete Souza, Austin Mann, Annet de Graaf, Luisa Dorr, Chen Man, Phil Schiller, Kaiaan Drance, Brooks Kraft, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, Jon McCormack and Arem Duplessis. More about the judges here.

Completed in 1984, the #hdb #publichousing estate of #potongpasir has several blocks with a distinct #skislope roof that have become iconic and synonymous with the town. Here is a #reflection of one of the blocks on the Basketball court of the community club that had just been washed. The bird as always, is a bonus. . . . #vernaculararchitecture #vernacular #sgarchitecture #singaporearchitecture #archdaily #archivingsg #architecture #architecturesg #architecturelovers #architecturephotography #architectureporn #sglandscape #sgcityscape #cityscape #iphoneonly #shotoniphonexsmax
