It’s amazing to see the stories we’re now capable of telling with a device that fits in our pocket containing a camera about the size of a dime (or maybe it’s even smaller now, I’m running out of currency/technology scale comparisons). One of the primary champions of photography taken with iPhones is the iPhone Photography Awards which just announced the winners of their 2014 competition. This is the 7th year of the IPPAWARDS, a global contest for photographs taken only with iPhones. This year includes 54 photographers hailing from 17 countries who competed in 17 different categories. Seen here are the top three winners and some of my own favorites, but you can see much more on their website. (via Tim Cook)
