After a month of your votes, and hours of furious debate amongst the Stuff team and our panel of judges, a clear winner has emerged.

We are pleased to announce Charles Liban Jr. as the Overall Grand Prize Winner of the 2017 Stuff Smartphone Photography Awards powered by Honor, and the new title holder of Stuff‘s ‘Super Snapper’ for 2017.

Our judges concluded that his photo entitled ‘The Dream’ showed a strong understanding of smartphone photography, capturing the subject matter in a candid moment whilst utilising the lighting of the environment to maximum effect for a powerful final image. Your numerous votes in support of his entry backed this up.

“This photo has a story; I wanted to take a photo of the car on the best possible angle and I noticed that a guy was about to pass by so I waited and by great chance he suddenly glanced at the car. Viola! ‘The Dream’ was conceptualized.” said Charles when we asked him about the impetus behind taking the winning photo.

Congratulations again the Charles, who walks away with a prize package worth over AED8,000 including an Honor 7X smartphone.


We’d also like to congratulate Joicelle Vergara who has nabbed the top honours in the Honor’s Choice category and wins herself an Honor 7X smartphone.

Her photo ‘Beautiful Meringue’ was shot on an Honor 7 and caught the eye of our judges thanks to its excellent composition and use of colour. Well done, Joicelle!


And, of course, all your furious voting over the last 30 days has not been for naught. Every vote cast entered each of you into the running to win an Honor 7X smartphone and we are pleased to announce that the prize goes to Jamal V. Congrats Jamal, we’ll be in touch to let you know how you can pick up your prize.
