The winners of the 2013 iPhone Photography Awards have been announced recently, showing the best of human creativity and the amazing capabilities of your smartphone to take mind blowing pictures. From towering architecture, to stunning vistas, and some haunting portraits to boot, these award winners are shaking the 'hipster' image of iPhone snaps.
Phone photography characteristics are present in the grainy quality of some shots, and the heavy use of filters. Apps like Instagram were fair game for use during the competition; but luckily, no photos of breakfast were present.
So just sit back and enjoy, as you look over these beautiful photographs taken merely by the likes of the smartphone you have in your pocket. If you're feeling confident. head over to the IPPA website for more info on how you can be a part of next year's competition.
