Back in January, Apple kicked off a worldwide photo challenge, encouraging iPhone 11, iPhone 11 Pro and iPhone 11 Pro Max users to share their photos taken with Night mode.
Apple today announced the winners of the contest, noting its panel of judges (which included executive Phil Schiller) have picked the winners. Thousands of submissions were sent to Apple via Instagram, Twitter, and Weibo using the hashtags #ShotOniPhone and #NightmodeChallenge.
Check out the winners below:

The judges picking the winners were: Malin Fezehai (US), Tyler Mitchell (US), Sarah Lee (UK), Alexvi Li (China), Darren Soh (Singapore), Phil Schiller, Kaiann Drance, Brooks Kraft, Jon McCormack and Arem Duplessis.
Interestingly, no winners were from Canada or the USA and three of them were from Russia.
“All iPhone 11 models feature a new Wide sensor with 100 percent Focus Pixels that enables Night mode, delivering low-light photos captured in indoor and outdoor environments never before possible on iPhone,” explains Apple.
