The Mobile Photography Awards have announced the winners of the 2020 edition, the tenth of this particular competition entirely dedicated to shots taken on smartphones.
As mobile photography becomes more and more popular and asserts its full potential, the MPAs are the most recognized international award in this field and illustrate what a good photographer is able to accomplish with (seemingly) little means.
The 2020 Grand Prize winner and 2020 MPA Photographer of the Year is Dan Liu, who also won the Silhouettes category. Liu is a freelance photographer and artist who explores the human condition and landscape photography. Shot with an Apple iPhone11 ProMax, his images show his subjects in the middle of a story.
