India’s Holi Festival Paints The City In An Explosion Of Color

Spring has its fair share of holidays and festivities—St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Chinese New Year—yet no event captures the vibrancy and color of the changing seasons like Holi, India’s magical “festival of color.” The Holi festival takes place each year after the full moon in March (though some regions celebrate earlier). While the event’s meaning has changed over the centuries, it is generally thought to mark the end of winter and welcome the arrival of spring.

Cell phones have come a long way over the past decade.

Whether you’re taking selfies or Snapchatting your lunch, many of today’s phone cameras rival professional ones. It is because of these great advances that the iPhone Photography Awards were born. Though not as polished as professional photography contests, these image entries are impeccable in their own right.
