This is the Winning Smartphone Photo from the 2015 Sony World Photo Awards

This photo, titled "A Day on the Beach," has been selected as this year's best mobile phone photograph in the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards. Italian photographer Turi Calafato captured the image on a beach in Sicily in July 2014.

"It is usual to see scenes like this because people spend all day alone at the beach," Calafato writes. "All kind of people are seen, and it is a pleasure to contemplate at the same time so much of humanity enjoying and relaxing under the sun."

Photography School Launches Camera Phone Course

Camera phone photography has been exploding in popularity in recent times -- pretty much every new phone is equipped with a camera nowadays, the iPhone is the most popular "camera" on Flickr, photographer Chase Jarvis has launched a mini-empire around the slogan "The Best Camera Is The One That's With You", the sensors for mobile phones are approaching absurd numbers of megapixels, etc... -- so it's not surprising that a UK-based photography school has launched a course dedicated to cell phone photography.
