Aside from an updated lineup of judges, this year’s VISION+ Mobile PhotoAwards will introduce more categories across three groups, including the Open Group, Youth Group and a new Professional Group. vivo encourages smartphone users to identify the categories they are most passionate about and show-off their creativity.

The Professional Group includes three categories: News, Creative and Documentary Projects, encouraging professional photographers to interpret and express their feelings on modern culture, social trends and the defining moments of the year. The Open and Youth Groups emphasize the beauty of daily life, human emotions and memories. The Open Group includes six categories: Portraits, Night, Sports, Nature, Life and Places. The Youth Group is a Special Feature that focuses on the subject of Surroundings.

The competition will feature 33 awards across all categories and winners will receive awards and creative support from vivo. Apart from general awards such as cash prizes, smartphones and certificates, vivo will also collaborate with industry partners to provide winners with opportunities in commercial photography, urban outdoor exhibitions and the publication of photographic works. vivo’s goal is to empower the long-term development of winners and aid in the discovery and appreciation of exceptional mobile photography.

Anyone can be a creator with human-centric, professional photography capabilities

Smartphones are making photographs easier to capture than ever before. vivo, as a pioneer in mobile photography innovation, is continuously analyzing and responding to the changing needs of its 400 million users worldwide. vivo has collaborated with ZEISS, our global imaging strategic partner, in pursuit of this goal. By combining vivo’s understanding of its users with ZEISS’s expertise in optics, we are enhancing the mobile imaging experience for the general public, including replicating the Biotar portrait style on the vivo X60 series. Moving forward, vivo and ZEISS will continue to strengthen joint research and development efforts to launch even more intuitive and easy-to-use imaging functions, helping people everywhere capture life’s precious moments.

It is vivo’s firm belief that the defining photographs of an era should not be created by a single group, but by users around the world and from all walks of life. While solidifying our strengths in professional imaging, vivo also hopes to invite more people to join us in using their phones to capture human-centric photos full of warmth, energy and meaning. Let’s all join hands to celebrate the joy of humanity through powerful images, and help more people enjoy the creative process in an era when anyone can be a creator.
