iPhone Photography Awards 2014

You know that really good photo you took with your phone? That one you've shown your mates several times in the hope they'll ask "You didn't use a DSLR?". The arty one. With good lighting. Impressive though it may be, it wouldn't have stood a chance in the iPhone Photography Awards 2014.

The winners of the 7th annual contest have been announced - and we're still not quite sure how they managed to take these with a device whose primary purpose is to make phone calls. It would be like painting a master work with a comb (which has probably happened, knowing modern artists).

The first place winners of each category took home a rather special prize of a gold bar. We've picked out our favourites from amongst the winners, but you can head over to the IPPA site for the full gallery of winners and runners up.
