Mobile Photo Awards: November 30 is the Final Day for Submissions

Submitted by on November 29, 2011 – 5:40 pm One Comment

November 30 is the final day for submissions for entries for the Mobile Photography Awards. That would be tomorrow today.

The Mobile Photo Awards is a competition designed to celebrate the explosive growth of cell-phone photography and art. The photo contest is also an open call for a traveling gallery exhibit featuring the winners of 25 categories.

Learn more about the MPA, including how to enter after the jump. >>>

One of the goals of the MPA is to bring the art of mobile phone photography from the virtual into the physical world. To that end, images entered into the MPA become eligible for display in the three brick and mortar exhibits to be held next year. The exhibit will visit a minimum of three prominent galleries in North America including a month long engagement at San Francisco’s prestigious ArtHaus gallery in April of 2012.

The MPA has already become one of the most popular mobile photography contests in the short history of mobile photography. And the panel of judges reads like a Who’s Who of mobile photography.

One lucky winner will receive a grand prize of a $500 Apple Store gift card while winners in all 25 categories will receive pro memberships and an online portfolio courtesy of the popular photo sharing site 500px.com.

Submissions are accepted through tomorrow today November 30, 2011. The contest is open to mobile photographers using any mobile phone platform. To enter, upload your photos at www.mobilephotoawards.com.  Submission fees are $20 for 3 images and $30 for 5.
