Now in it's 9th year, the annual iPhone Photography Awards offers the opportunity for amateur and professional photographers to put their smartphone prowess to the test and send in their best snaps for a chance of acclaim.
The only stipulations? That all photos must be taken with an iPhone, iPod or iPad, and that none of the images are altered using desktop software. In keeping with spirit of the competition though, iOS apps are obviously allowed.
The winning results are genuinely brilliant. Let it never be said that your iPhone isn't a real camera.
