Alex Jiang (U.S.), iPhone XS Max

Judge Annet de Graaf states: “The narrative in architecture. There is actually life behind the surface of an average apartment building in an unknown city. Vivid colors and a perfect composition with the basketball board right in the middle! Great eye.”

Blake Marvin (U.S.), iPhone XS Max

Phil Schiller states: “The stolen glance between this raccoon/thief and photographer is priceless, we can imagine that it is saying ‘if you back away slowly no one has to get hurt.’ A nice use of black and white, the focus on the raccoon and the inside of the hollow log provides an organic movement frozen in time.”

Darren Soh (Singapore), iPhone XS Max

Chen Guy states: “Distortion and reflection at a strange angle—this photo creates a fantastic feeling.”

Nikita Yarosh (Belarus), iPhone 7

Austin Mann states: “I love how accessible this image is: You don’t have to travel to Iceland to capture something beautiful, it’s right under your nose. The way the lines intersect, the vibrant color, the sense of old and new … this is just a great image.”

Dina Alfasi (Israel), iPhone X

Sebastien Marineau-Mes states: “Love how the heart-shaped water puddle frames the subject, capturing a glimpse of the world as the subject hurriedly walks past.”

Elizabeth Scarrott (U.S.), iPhone 8 Plus

Brooks Kraft states: “A portrait that captures the wonderment of childhood in a beautiful setting. Great composition that shows both the personality of the child and the experience in the surroundings.”

Andrew Griswold (U.S.), iPhone XS

Jon McCormak states: “This image is very well thought through and executed. The background pattern holds the image together and the repeated smaller versions of that pattern in the water droplets create a lot of visual interest. The creative use of depth of field here is excellent.”

Bernard Antolin (U.S.), iPhone XS Max

Kaiann Drance states: “Looks like a simple scene but a good choice of using black and white to elevate it with a different mood. Helps to bring out the dramatic contrast in the clouds and the surrounding landscape.”

LieAdi Darmawan (U.S.), iPhone XS

Luísa Dörr states: “I feel like this landscape was treated like an old portrait. The texture of the mountains evokes an old wrinkled face. Portraits and landscapes are the oldest way of creative representation by humans. There’s something about it that belongs to the realms of the subconscious mind, and this is mainly what appeals me of this picture; the part that I’m not able to explain.”

Robert Glaser (Germany), iPhone 7

Kaiann Drance states: “Gorgeous dynamic range. There’s detail throughout the photo in the meadow, trees, and clouds. Beautiful deep sky and pleasing color overall.”
