Lucas shot the photo with an iPhone 4 which Apple launched back in June, 2010. In terms of specs, the iPhone 4 has a 5-megapixel rear camera with HD video recording and LED flash. It sports a 0.3-megapixel front camera for selfies. If we compare it to any smartphone right now the iPhone 4 is way behind in almost every aspect.

The IPPA is not to be confused with Apple's Shot on iPhone competition. In fact, the IPPA takes place without any participation from Apple as a brand. There's a total of 18 categories and three winners are picked for each category. The grand prize winner of this year's IPPA is UK-based Dimpy Bhalotia for her photo of three boys jumping into the Ganges River. The photo titled ‘Flying Boys' was taken with an iPhone XS.

There's actually a variety of iPhones featured in the awards list. Some of these include the iPhone 6, iPhone 7 Plus, iPhone 6s, and iPhone 6 Plus as well.
