Mobile photography has acquired an enormous following over the last few years and it is now considered by many an alternative and valid form of visual art, on par with traditional photography. Thanks to the diffusion of mobile devices, even amateurs with no previous experience and with no background in photography are given an easy and accessible form of expression.
The Mobile Photo Awards are addressed to all mobile photographers out there. To take part in the contest, an entry fee of $20 for three images and $30 for five images is required; every image submitted is allowed for inclusion to up to three categories. Categories span a broad spectrum of photography genres, from Architecture to Digital Art & Collage. Specially sponsored app categories offer even more possibilities and hints to get creative. A Jury composed by renown names in the world of mobile photography will be judging all the images submitted. Note that any photo taken/processed with a mobile device is eligible for entry, regardless of the specific medium and software used.
The first placement will be awarded a $500 Apple Store gift card. Other prizes include more gift cards, 500px pro accounts, MacPhun’s desktop photo software and more, not to forget a feature on a tour gallery exhibit.
