We are pleased to announce the winners of the BBC News website's recent mobile phone competition where we invited readers to send pictures of their changing world in South Asia.
The judges decided that the choice of subject matter and picture composition was more important than high-quality finishes, given that so many mobile phone cameras still have low resolutions in terms of pixels.
FIRST PRIZE: RAVINDER KUMAR GUPTA, Gurgaon, India
Ravinder wins a Sony Digital Handycam for his photo of a workman trying to get to grips with the profusion of wires in Gurgaon, the rapidly expanding mini-city outside of Delhi that is the centre of much economic development.
"I'm very excited to learn that my picture won the first prize, it's really just unbelievable. It is very surprising for me... one day I read about the bbcnews.com contest, sent some pictures taken from my Nokia mobile and I never thought at that time that I would win."
SECOND PRIZE: VIPUL KHATTAR, Kanpur, India
Vipul wins second prize of a digital camera for this photo of a workman suspended high up as he works on a building wall.
"It was quite a fluke by which I came across the poster in my college bulletin board [for the competition]. Nevertheless it struck my eyes at once owing to the uniqueness of the concept... a lot of people prefer mobile cameras over the normal ones these days."
THIRD PRIZE: UMAIR H MIRZA, Karachi, Pakistan
Umair wins third prize of a Worldspace satellite radio for this photo of flood chaos in Karachi.
"This photograph is taken from the basement of my office. The rain resulted in a disaster for the city, many people died and I had to stay in my office that day.
"I got home after being stuck in a horrific traffic jam for 3 hours."
Consolation prizes of DVD players have been awarded to the first two photos in this gallery.
The other photos, not all of which were taken with mobile phones, also caught the judges' eyes.
