This category is about sharing those gritty, personal documentary family photos made with your phone at home, on the street or at work. For the vast majority of us, the phone is actually our most used camera, whether we want to admit it or not. Good photographs are not about the camera but rather the photographer’s eye and this category is about celebrating just that.
