These are the stunning winning images of a photography contest with a difference – they were all shot on mobile phones.
The eighth Mobile Photography Awards attracted over 7,000 entries from photographers in more than 65 countries.
The contest featured 20 themed categories including landscapes, portraits, black and white, photojournalism, nature and wildlife.
The grand prize winner was Dominika Koszowska, a graphic designer and fine art photographer from Poland.
Jury Member Alon Goldsmith, an LA based photographer and educator, says about Koszowska’s work: ‘[Its] playful exploration of scale bestows a sense of majesty and wonder to her subjects. She invites viewers to bare witness and linger in magical spaces that are all the more magnificent for having been seen.’
The awards founder, Daniel Berman, a photographer from Toronto, said: ‘The iPhone is still the most widely used by our entrants but this is year we’ve seen a wide variety of other camera phones used for our winning photos. The work we see each year always gets better.’ Scroll down to see the some of the amazing winning entries…
