The EYE’EM AWARD is a global competition celebrating creative excellence in mobile photography. It is our mission to create a unique showcase of the scene’s most admired shots and present them to a wider audience. All winning images will be exhibited in an exclusive AWARD EXHIBITION in Berlin. Moreover, the finalists will be published in the EYE’EM Annual, a book dedicated to mobile photography. EYE’EM announces an international jury including some of the worlds leading mobile photographers, creatives and designers from America, Asia and Europe.
The EYE’EM AWARD 2010 is dedicated to a new generation of photographers. With the increasing quality of in-built cameras, more and more mobile phone users discover their passion for photography. Capturing both, people and context, situations as they happen, these photographers become voyeurs of the everyday and document the world as they see it.

“To take photographs means to recognize — simultaneously and within a fraction of a second — both the fact itself and the rigorous organization of visually perceived forms that give it meaning. It is putting one’s head, one’s eye and one’s heart on the same axis.” – Henri Cartier-Bresson

There is already an exclusive crowd out there who have proved themselves worthy of carrying on the mission of Cartier-Bresson, the point and shoot legend of the 1940s. EYE’EM features remarkable mobile photographers. The global mobile photography movement has been gaining momentum for years. EYE’EM is convinced that the time has come to push forward a new form of art. Mobile Photography is rising and ready to conquer the global art scene. And EYE’EM provides the stage for it.
