Best of the iPhone Photography Awards_Part_2_Last

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.

 Brandon Kidwell, from Florida, came top in the 'Lifestyle' competition for his picture of rowers 

 Rhonda Dent's picture of children playing on swings at a merry-go-round came second in the 'Lifestyle' category 

 Newer iPhones have a 'panoramic' photo setting, which enables the photographer to get an entire 360degree landscape in one picture. Journalist Kyle G Horst's entry won the 'Panorama' group. On his inspiration for taking pictures, Kyle explained: 'I want future generations to be able to see a photo and feel as if they were in it' 

 Lauren Smith, who was named top in the 'People' category, explained that she felt it was easier to shoot subjects from an iPhone than a DSLR, because they were more aware of actual cameras, and so the 'truth' was often lost 

 Coco Liu, who also came third in 'Architecture', came top in 'Seasons'. The photographer, from Chicago, prefers taking pictures on a phone because he is 'more focused on the moment and story' in front of him 

 Sofija Strindlund, from Sweden, had the winning submission in 'Still Life' with this perfectly composed picture of the sun shining on a set table

 Book editor Little Su's image of came top in the 'Sunset' category, the breathtaking picture was snapped in Taiwan

 The only UK winning entry from the UK was from London-based Adrienne Pitts in the 'Travel' section. She explained her passion for iPhone photography: 'This little device I carry in my pocket is a constant reminder to me to always be shooting, to always have my eyes open, and to always try and become better at what I do.' 

 The winning entry in 'Trees' came from Aaron Pike in San Francisco with this submission. The published, award-winning, composer is inspired by photography that encourages people to 'get up and go'.
