The winners of the eighth-annual Mobile Photography Awards were announced today and it is likely there are some members of the jury still losing sleep over the selections.

First place is awarded in 19 categories followed by a slew of honorable mentions most stunning enough to hold down top honors.

The jury slogged through more than 7,000 images from 65 countries.

Two interesting figures for steadfast iPhone photographers: About 75 percent of all entries were made with an iPhone; 10 of the 19 first-place winners recorded their winning image on an Apple handset.

The pictures posted here are those 10 winners, the category in which they won and their iPhone model. But take time out of your day to view all the honorees on the MPA website.
