Who said you need a fancy camera to take a great photo? Whoever did, they clearly didn’t see the winning shots of the 2016 iPhone Photography Awards (IPPAWARDS).

The 9th annual recognition event for those photographers loyal to Apple has come to a conclusion with 24 winners selected out of hundreds of contestants. From landscape shots to portraits these photographers showed that good photos are not about the equipment, it’s about how you use it.

Some shots could even trick you that they were made with pro grade cameras, showing us how far the technology has come in only a decade.
