I-phone Winner and Photographer of the Year Award

The iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS) have announced the winners of this year’s competition, and the Grand Prize Winner in the category of Photographer of the Year went to 23-year-old Gabriella Cigliano of Napoli, Italy.
One of the judges called the 2019 winners “off the charts great” and said the work “pulls the planet together through photographs.”
Gabriella Cigliano of Italy takes home the Grand Prize Winner and Photographer of the Year Award for her photograph Big Sister, taken in Zanzibar on an iPhone X.
Big Sister, Gabriella Cigliano Last year I spent a month in Wasa, Tanzania, teaching a class of young, curious and amazing guys. Before heading back to Italy we stopped in Zanzibar, where this photo was taken. I still wonder how could I capture that exact moment in all its beauty. I was just observing, a few meters from them, but they were probably more curious about me than I was about them, and that’s probably why the girl was looking at me. We couldn’t talk much, except for a few words in Swahili I had learned in the previous weeks, but those kids could definitely talk with their eyes. It was one of the most beautiful things I’ve seen in my life, and I’ll keep it in my memories forever. The best part was showing them and their mums the photos, for some it was the first time they were seeing their faces, and their excitement was unexplainable, unfortunately my iPhone was in their hands and I couldn’t capture that!
