Best of the iPhone Photography Awards_Part_1

Don't diss your iPhone camera. It's packed with power. Power to make compelling images that put many cameras to sodden shame. Power to evoke jaw-dropping, breath-stopping reactions. Power to win awards.

Running since 2007, the iPhone Photography awards - which have no connection to Apple - have 16 categories: Animals, Architecture, Children, Flowers, Food, Landscape, Lifestyle, Nature, News/Events, Others, People, Seasons, Still Life, Sunset, Travel and Trees. Anyone with an iPhone can enter to be in with a chance of winning one of 16 gold bars and three iPads on offer as prizes.

 Julio Lucas won the award for Photographer of the Year at the IPP awards for this incredible image of a mountaineer. Julio, from Florida, said: 'I want my photos to take on a more traditional form and grant the capture moment to tell the story rather then a manipulation of the moment by use of too many filters'

 Runner up for Photographer of the Year went to Jose Luis Barcia Fernandez for this shot of a man walking. Jose specialises in colourless photography, stating: 'I am interested in black and white street photography, photomontages and minimalist photography. I try to capture emotions and moods through an ever-present subjects in all my photographs.'

 Jill Missner captured this picture of a dalmation blending into the snow. Jill was awarded third place in the overall Photographer of the Year award, and won an iPad Air 

 San Francisco based photographer Michael O'Neal came top in the 'Animal' category at the awards. He explained: 'While driving up to Colter Bay Beach in Wyoming, I had a memorable encounter with this little guy. I turned the corner and saw him next to stopped pickup truck in the middle of the road, the departing snowmobilers told me that he was friendly. I parked, and swiftly grabbed my iPhone and DSLR. I sat in the road for 10 minutes with him, he was so curious! No cars, not a soul around, just me and this red fox. The iPhone shot turned out the best that day!' 

 This picture, captured by Yilang Peng, was judged the best in 'Architecture' category. The annual competition is in its seventh year, with thousands of entries coming in from 17 countries 

 Coco Liu's vertigo-inducing picture of a plane flying between two skyscrapers came third in the Architecture category. There were 16 categories to compete in: Animals, architecture, children, flowers, food, landscape, lifestyle, nature, news/events, people, seasons, still life, sunset, travel, trees and others. 

 Danny Van Vuuren's black and white image of children playing with their father won the 'Children' category. The television producer, from South Africa, said: 'Most of my snaps are of my family but I also love to capture a beautiful African sunset or an old building, basically whatever inspires me in that moment because that is what all these pictures are: Moments of our lives and proof that we were part of those moments' 

 This close-up of a translucent plant, submitted by Amsterdam-born Jenny Anderson, was the winning entry in 'Flowers'. Amateur iPhone photographer Jenny uses natural lighting or a strange angle to capture her subjects and layers filters from different apps to enhance the objects

 Professional photographer Alexa Seidl, from Washington DC, came top in the 'Food' category for this shot of growing asparagus

First place in the 'Landscape' category went to Elena Grimailo for this shot of mountains against the night sky. Winners receive a gold bar and certificate, with the top three photographers given an iPad to continue their photography
