Oppo has just launched the Oppo Imagine IF Photography Awards with one of the biggest prizes for mobile photography competitions. Not only will the winners take home a cash prize of CNY160,000 ($18,000) but they will also receive expert training and get to take part in an international photo exhibition. 

The Chinese tech manufacturer is responsible for the flagship Oppo Find N2, a foldable flip phone with a 50MP camera and the Oppo Find X5 Pro which combines two 50MP Hasselblad cameras. Oppo’s Moto is "inspiration ahead" and by launching a photography competition aimed purely at camera phone photographers, the company is empowering those who don’t have access to more expensive mirrorless cameras.
