For those not in the know, “Xiaomi photography challenge” is a contest organized by the Chinese phone maker where users send in images taken with any Xiaomi phone for a chance to go home with as much as $10,000. The brand held its first photo contest back in 2017 which had up to 13,000 entries from Xiaomi phone users from around the world contend for the total prize of $30,000, and that was subsequently followed by a more robust contest that had users contend for up to $50,000.
The featured image which was taken with the Redmi Note 6 Pro captioned “Natural look” by Zoel Cholid from Indonesia clinched last year’s first price of $10,000.

We would have to wait for the official kick-off date as well as contest modalities, we would definitely keep you abreast.
