Someone once said that “The best camera in the world is the one you have with you at the time.” These days most people have a camera with them all the time via their telephone. 

For the last 7 years the iPhone Photography Awards (known as the IPPAWARDS) are given in a range of categories for photographs taken with a phone camera. This year’s awards, the eighth such presentation, covered submissions from 17 countries.

The categories are Animals, Architecture, Children, Flowers, Food, Landscape, Lifestyle, Nature, News/Events, Others, People, Seasons, Still Life, Sunset, Travel and Trees. Photos need to have been taken with an iPhone, iPod or iPad and cannot have been edited on any way by desktop software.

The complete awards list and winning photographs for every year can be viewed at:
