Cell phone cameras have come a long way in the past decade, and today many are capable of producing amazing images. Today, most people take pictures with their cell phones, and even some professionals are getting into the mix.

The World Photo Organisation recently held the 2015 Sony World Photography Mobile Phone Awards, and put together a list of the top 20 shots. All of these pictures were taken with a cellular phone — no SLRs allowed.
