If you own an iPhone, there's no doubt you'll use its camera function to snap memories and inspiring moments. Thus, early this year, Apple made an open call for the Shot on iPhone Challenge. Interested participants then posted their best photo taken with their iPhones on Instagram or Twitter with the #ShotOniPhone hashtag to make an entry. The prize? 10 selected winners will be featured on billboards in select cities, in addition to Apple retail stores and online.
An international panel of judges—Pete Souza, Austin Mann, Annet de Graaf, Luísa Dörr, Chen Man, Phil Schiller, Kaiann Drance, Brooks Kraft, Sebastien Marineau-Mes, Jon McCormack and Arem Duplessis—have made their verdict; picking out photos that capture colourful city scenery, curious animals, creative reflections, the beauty of the ordinary and more. From the list of winners, there's only one entry from Asia (Singapore!). See the image below.

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
