ProCamera launches “Uncharted” iPhone Photo Competition
From the press release from ProCamera, here’s a new call for submissions.
The award-winning iPhone camera app ProCamera and iPhoneArt.com have just launched â€œProCamera Contest: Unchartedâ€, an iPhone Photo competition.
The contest is open to all iPhone photographers. Prizes include an iPad 2, iTunes gift cards, museum-quality mounts, iBal mobile color balance filters, and entries in art exhibition. The submission period is open from April 18th to May 7th, 2011. For more details, visit the contest page on iPhoneArt.com.
The purpose of the contest is to provide a platform for artists and developers to meet â€” to see how far they can push the emerging field of iPhoneography â€” to encourage everyone to move onto uncharted ground â€” to learn from one another â€” to discover new techniques â€” and present a unique vision to the world.
â€œThe partnership between ProCamera and iPhoneArt is the beginning of a new kind of online community. One where artist and developers can come together on equal footing, and help each other begin to understand the potential of this new medium. We admire the arts and treasure feedback from the artists.â€ Said Jens Daemgen, CEO of Daemgen.net and ProCameraâ€™s creator.
â€œPaul Strand once said, â€œThe artistâ€™s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.â€ Never has this been more true than it is today. So letâ€™s find out whatâ€™s possible!â€ said Daria Polichetti, iPhoneArtâ€™s co-founder.

Disclosure: Both ProCamera and iPhoneArt.com advertise on the blog. This did not effect my decision to run this story. It’s presented for what it is — a call for submissions for an iPhone photography contest with some pretty good prizes and a chance for iPhoneographers to gain additional exposure.
