After a month of your votes and hours of furious debate amongst the Stuff team and our panel of judges, a clear winner has emerged.
We are pleased to announce Anna Turai as the Overall Winner of the 2016 Stuff Smartphone Photography Awards powered by Huawei, and the new title holder of Stuff’s Super Snapper for 2016.
Our judges concluded that her photo entitled ‘No Fear’ showed a strong understanding of smartphone photography, capturing the subject matter in a candid moment whilst utilising the lighting of her environment to maximum effect, for a powerful final image. Your numerous votes in support of her entry also backed this up.
"Technology and social media are the future and these days your smartphone camera that you carry around all day can capture and share magical moments instantly. I took this shot after a job interview in Index Tower, DIFC, Dubai and although I did not get the job, this picture became the winner of the competition which I am very proud of. I love to take pictures and share them on Instagram, all you need is some creativity and to be in the right place at the right time." - Anna Turai on her winning photo
Anna walks away with an awesome prize package including a Huawei Nova Plus smartphone, Huawei Watch, an overnight stay for two at the Villa Rotana Dubai, an Xbox One and much much more.
