Each one was chosen from thousands of entries submitted from around the world for the iPhone Photography Awards 2017.
This year, amateur and professional photographers from more than 140 different countries sent their photos in to be considered by judges.
The winners have now been chosen, and here are their favourites.
Winners were chosen from nineteen categories, including people, The America I Know, abstract, travel, news/events and portrait.
The grand prize was awarded to Sebastiano Tornada from New York City, who photographed young children in Qayyarah, Iraq, standing amid the backdrop of a burning oil well that had been set alight by Islamic State militants.
The runner-up in the same category went to Brenda O Se of Cork, Ireland, for his image entitled ‘Dock Worker’.
Second place went to Yeow-Kwang Yeo of Singapore for his photograph called ‘The Performer’, and third went to Kuanglong Zhang of Shenzhen, China for his image ‘The City Palace’.
Other stunning photographs included Juan Carlos Castañeda who won the first place in the category of The America I Know.
The image was taken on December 5th, 2016, at Standing Rock in North Dakota during a protest against the eviction of the Sioux tribe while a snow storm hurtles around the protestors.
Juan said: ‘Everyone there stood until it was physically impossible to continue. Shortly after that picture was taken everyone had to go back to camp and the officers on the other side of the bridge had to leave as well.
‘It was a great reminder of who truly was in charge.’
The winner of the ‘People’ category, Dina Alfasi from Israel, took an image of a man sitting on public transport.
Alfasi said: ‘At first, to pass the time, I was just observing them and trying to guess where they’re going, what they are dealing with, or what their story may be.
‘Along with this observation, I noticed intimate moments and so I started to take photos, and I was surprised with the result.’
First place for the ‘News/Events’ category was Samuel Nacar, from Spain, with the photograph ‘The nomads of Europe’, depicting the eviction of refugees from the Jungle in Calais.
Nacar said: ‘The eviction took place during a week, but on Wednesday 26th of October the camp was set on fire, and thousands of migrants had to leave. Some of them were relocated, but others kept on being nomads.’
Other winners were chosen from the categories of panorama, animals, trees, still life and sunset.
First place in the ‘Children’ category was Szymon Felkel from Poland with the image ‘Children’s curiosity’.
Szymon captured the image of a girl looking under a skirt in New York in August 2015.
Francesca Tongutti’s image of a horse looking at the camera won the ‘Animal’ category.
Tongutti, from Italy, said it was important that this image took a more traditional form and captured the moment without using too many filters to tell a story.
First place for the category of ‘Abstract’ was Christopher Armstrong, originally from South Africa, with the photograph taken in Looking Glass Bay in Australia.
He said that he wanted his iPhone photograph to connect the viewer to notions of beauty and the sublime through the use of light.
Armstrong added: ‘I hope to touch the viewer with simple beauty but also to connect the history of art making as I reference and am inspired by other practitioners.’
This is the tenth annual awards for the iPhone Photography Awards and the winner was gifted an iPad Pro.
Creator of the iPhone Photography Awards, Kenan Aktulun, said: ‘We are amazed to see how IPPAWARDS has grown from a small circle of people and friends of friends into a truly global audience with thousands of participants.’
