The annual Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) organizers have announced the winners and runners-up of their 10th annual competition. MPA is the longest-running international competition that recognizes and rewards photography captured on mobile phones or tablets.
Over 5,700 images were submitted from 75 countries. Participants entered their work into a broad range of 20 categories including Transportation, Street Photography, Photojournalism, Black & White, and Digital Fine Art. Dan Liu, a mobile photographer from China, won the title of MPA Photographer of the Year and a grand prize of $3,000 cash.
”The winners of the 10th Annual Mobile Photography Awards are a testament to another year in the rapid evolution of mobile phone cameras,’ says MPA founder Daniel Berman, a photographer and filmmaker based near Toronto, Canada. He adds, ‘…the iPhone is still the most widely used by our entrants but this year we saw a larger variety of camera phones than ever before. Each competition we hold sees the quality of the submitted photos grow by leaps and bounds.’
Since its founding in 2011, the competition has produced over 35 gallery shows around the globe. All winning and finalist galleries, including Photo Essay winners, can be viewed here. MPA is currently accepting entries for its 2021 competition through December 11th.
