Huawei is among the leading pioneers of smartphone photography and it has proved this time and again with its P Series. Despite the hurdles due to the executive order passed by the U.S. President last year, Huawei has been launching new flagship phones, although in select markets. It launched the Huawei P40, P40 Pro, and the P40 Pro+ last month with a horde of exciting camera features which make it a desirable phone for many photography enthusiasts. Huawei is now hosting a global photography competition and the winners will win a Huawei P40 Pro and cash prizes up to $10,000.
