Shoot and share. Showcasing the creative edge use of mobile technology in visual arts; photography and moving image. Locally. Globally.

The use of mobile phones in the creation and distribution of creative content in the hands of both amateurs and professionals is rapidly growing. In New Zealand, at the forefront of this new art form is MINA (Mobile Innovation Network Aotearoa), brining together a collective of mobile content creators both locally and internationally.

MINA at Fringe presents a combination of a mobile visual showcase and “pop-up” public screenings around the Wellington Fringe Festival Festival 2012.

Content is exclusively created on mobile devices, primarily from iPhone, Android and Symbian platforms and includes photography (“phoneography”, “iPhoneography”) and moving image (“micromovies”, “mobile-mentaries”).

Artists from New Zealand and around the world can submit their mobile films and photography content to be shown at MINA at Fringe showcases and pop-up screenings.

For this occasion MINA curated a mobile photography show-reel including 34 mobile photographers from around the world

Mobile photography and mobile films can now be submitted till the 20th February 2012.
To submit your mobile photography or film, simply email them to participate@mina.pro within the specified time-frames.

For MINA at Fringe, MEA Mobile have added a special MINA portal within their vintage 8mm film iPhone app “iSupr8”.
Users of the app can directly submit any of their iSupr8 videos for show at MINA at Fringe.

Fringe-goers and participants can use their mobile devices to shoot and upload their own experiences during the Festival.
Submit your mobile work and be part of Wellington Fringe 2012!
