First, we’d like to extend a huge “Thank You!” to everyone who participated in our contest! You thrill and inspire us, and also make our job a lot of fun!
We received over 300 entries to our Phone Photography Contest. We are absolutely blown away by the quality of the photographs and inspired by your creativity! It was incredibly difficult to choose our favorites and almost impossible to narrow it down to just three winners of a GorillaMobile for iPhone 4/4S. Over the past week, our judges debated, deliberated and fought for their favorites. Now for the winners!
GorillaMobile for iPhone 4/4S—the fabulous prize for our contest winners—takes in San Francisco
First Place: Human Rides by Piyasil Kalayanakoul
From the photographer: I took this image from a bus when I was in Vienna for leisure. The app I used is QuickPix with the burst snap.
Second Place: Trying to Beat the Ocean by Eelco Roos
From the photographer: I shot this with the native iPhone 4 camera app, used crossprocess app with the basic settings, over to snapseed app to adjust colors and contrast. Used the “selective adjust” function in snapseed to highlight the boy a bit.
Third Place: Critters by Ninotchka Beavers
From the photographer: Unplanned shot, as some of the best ones tend to be; kids were splashing in the inflatable pool on a hot summer day and playing with my collection of creepy animal masks.
Honorable Mention: Aftermath—Tsunami Tohoku, Japan by Remo Camerota
From the photographer: This photo was taken one year ago while I was in Tohoku, Japan just after the earthquake. This is what is left of Kesennuma train station, holding a Freighter 4km inland. Being armed with my phone camera I documented the devastation that went on as far as the eye could see. The feeling to be at ground zero is indescribable.
Honorable Mention: Cemetery by Chris Heath
Here are a few more images that inspired us.
