Apple Announces The Best iPhone ‘Night Mode’ Photos Competition Winners For 2020


Last month, Apple opened the digital gates to submissions in search of the best ‘Night Mode’ photos out there. Users of iPhone 11s, iPhone 11 Pros, and iPhone 11 Pro Maxes were all eligible to be in the running for international recognition, in addition to actually being paid for it. 

Now, a total of six winners have been announced with each of their twilight snaps potentially to be used for Apple’s future advertising campaigns, and perhaps even being displayed in the stores themselves all across the world.

The winners are

  • Rustam Shagimordanov (Moscow, Russia) – iPhone 11
  • Konstantin Chalabov (Moscow, Russia) – iPhone 11 Pro
  • Andrei Manuilov (Moscow, Russia) – iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • Mitsun Soni (Mumbai, India) – iPhone 11 Pro
  • Ruben P. Bescos (Pamplona, Spain) – iPhone 11 Pro Max
  • Yu Zhang (Beijing, China) – iPhone 11 Pro Max

In terms of the judges this time around, Apple recruited some high-profile individuals to scrutinise the submissions and select the subsequent winners. 

This included Jon McCormack (TIME, UNESCO), Malin Fezehai (New York Times), Darren Soh, Tyler Mitchell (LOEWE), as well as Apple’s own executive, Phil Schiller, and many more.
