Adorama, one of America’s premier photography and consumer electronics resellers, announces that they are launching the APPOS, the first annual iPhone App Awards for Photography as well as an iPhone Photography Contest. The annual APPOS Awards are designed to spotlight the rapid rise in popularity of the iPhone as a new platform for digital point-and-shoot photography and to recognize developers of outstanding photo Apps.
An esteemed panel of judges includes Photoshop Guru Scott Kelby, Nikon shooters Joe McNally and Moose Peterson, Canon shooters Eric Meola and Syl Arena, plus popular WFAN radio personalities, former football quarterback Boomer Esiason and commentator Craig Carton. Winners for both the photo contest and the first ever APPOS Photo App Awards will be announced during the month of March.
“We were amazed to see what our customers were accomplishing with their iPhones,” said Ahron Schachter, Adorama spokesperson. “They were getting photographic results that no ordinary digital camera could accomplish without the use of image editing software normally found on a desktop computer. But they were doing everything on their iPhones! We believe the Apple iPhone is changing the way people think about their photos; there’s no doubt it is changing the picture-taking habits of even novice photographers.”
