That arty shot you took in the early hours of the morning at that festival last year? The one where the sun's rays just catch the line of flags in a way that makes your arm hair go all tingly? The one that got you the most amount of 'Likes' you've ever had from a single Facebook post?

Yeah, that one. It's crap. 

At least, it is compared to these snaps - the winners of the ninth (yep, that's how long iPhones have dominated our pockets) annual iPhone Photography Awards.

A panel of judges have cast their collective gaze over thousands of photos submitted from 139 countries, picking out winners for 19 categories (they bloody love giving out awards). 

Here are the best of the bunch.
