I got a couple of emails this year about entries to a competition called SmartFest but the entries cost about £5 unless you bought lots in which case it was probably £4.50 each. Needless to say I didn’t even post about it.

The results are now out and I have to say the chosen photos are pretty amazing. Don’t think I could have competed with these. Who needs a DSLR!!

Amazing images. I recognise some of the names from other comps.

Yes that was the Irish one wasn't it. Linked into Mobiography? I had some emails about that too, bit expensive. The judges are familiar but the winners aren't. Although I do know Brendan OSé the last image on the list.
The quality is fantastic, apart from the naked boy with wires around him :confused: As usual I'd love to know a little more about the equipment and editing details.

Wow. There are some incredible iMages in this contest. Like John I would love to know what they used and how the iMages were edited: if at all.

Great detective work Ted, seems the X is dominant. Not sure what that really means i.e. is it the best camera or just the most popular?
Would have liked a Pixel to have popped up there but hey!

I was surprised there weren't more Androids in the batch. We know the cameras are good enough, so maybe the word didn't get out?

My guess on the iPhone X: A lot of photographers upgraded to the X when it came out because of the dual cameras in the slimmer form factor but being more interested in photography than in gear, they didn't feel any need to upgrade to the similar Xs when it came out.

We also know there are far more photographic apps on Apple than Android, I'm sure that's a factor.

Wow Ted! We are looking for good detectives if you ever think of becoming a cop ;)
I didn’t see any of that info on their site. I was looking on my iPhone so Safari might not offer as much info. Fascinating spread of devices

Thanks, Ann - just had a nice browse! Some lovely images in that lot. And thanks Ted for the equipment info. Hopefully this comp will grow year to year.
