Glasgow-based artist Charlotte Prodger won the prestigious Turner Prize for short films in London, on Tuesday, for her work titled simply “Bridgit“.

The film explores class and gender identity, among other themes and includes footage shot on Prodger’s own iPhone over the course of a year.

According to The Guardian, Prodger used the iPhone to shoot her film on “because of the ease of use and the way you can use it while you are going about the world. For me, everything is in there.

As Prodger traveled a lot across the Scottish countryside, where most of the shots were taken, she preferred her iPhone to a bulkier camera. The chance she took paid off, as she was not only congratulated by Tim Cook himself via Twitter, but she also received a prize of £25,000.
