The Mobile Photography Awards has just announced the winners of its 12th annual competition which recognizes talented smartphone photographers. This year a record number of entries were received from photographers all over the world but surprisingly hardly any of the winning images were shot on the latest camera phones such as the iPhone 14 or Google Pixel 7

First place was awarded to Australian photographer Glenn Homann for his stunning portfolio of work which featured colorful architectural shots, a dreamy slow shutter capture of a waterfall, and a striking portrait of a bearded old man (among others) . His mesmerizing photos were taken on an iPhone 12 but it was the vivid colors, dramatic lighting, and compelling compositions that won Homann the $3,000 cash prize and the title of Mobile Photographer of the Year.
