The 8th annual Mobile Photography Awards attracted over 7,000 entries from smartphone photographers in more than 65 countries. Images entered into one of 20 different themed categories must have been entirely created on a smartphone or tablet. Editing or post-production on an entered image can only be undertaken using apps on a mobile device. The competition categories include landscapes, portraits, black and white, photojournalism, nature and wildlife.
The Mobile Photography Awards were founded in 2011 to recognise and celebrate the talent and imagery of the mobile photo & art communities. Alongside an annual competition there are themed exhibits with international open calls throughout the year.
This year's winning photos demonstrate just how far smartphone photography has evolved, with a stunning array of world class images. Cult of Mac report that approximately 75 percent of all entries were created on an iPhone with 10 first-place winners recorded their winning image on Apple devices.
The grand prize winner was Dominika Koszowska, a graphic designer and fine art photographer from Poland.
