Apple’s best Night mode photos of 2019

In January, Apple announced(opens in a new tab) a contest for the best photographs shot on with Night mode on the iPhone 11, 11 Pro, and 11 Pro Max.

On Tuesday, the company revealed the winners, chosen by a panel of photography experts and Apple execs, including Phil Schiller.

There are six winning photographs, and all of them are a testament to what can be achieved with Apple’s Night mode — from a serene, snowy night scene taken by Russia’s Konstantin Chalabov(opens in a new tab) to the mesmerizing outline of an art installation in Spain against an orange sky, taken by Rubén P. Bescós(opens in a new tab).

Other winning photographers are Andrei Manuilov(opens in a new tab) from Russia, Mitsun Soni(opens in a new tab) from India, Rustam Shagimordanov(opens in a new tab) from Russia, and Yu “Eric” Zhang(opens in a new tab) from China (featured at the top of this story).

The winning photos will be featured in a gallery on apple.com as well as on Apple’s Instagram account and global billboards, the company said.

A similar contest from Apple in January of last year proved controversial as, originally, Apple offered no compensation to the winners — a decision the company later reversed. For this latest contest, Apple made clear from the get-go that it will “pay a licensing fee to the five winning photographers for use of such photos on Apple marketing channels.”
