Brand New ‘Assignment’ Section at TheAppWhisperer.com

Share

We are very excited today to launch a new section to TheAppWhisperer.com. We are offering an opportunity for mobile photographers and artists to enter into a monthly assignment on a subject matter that we have individually crafted. This new section is another ground breaking topic within our community. Like so many of the sections within TheAppWhisperer, this has not been done before, in this way.

Photographic images have reflected and shaped culture since the inception of the medium and this is non more so apparent than shown within mobile photography and art. The power of mobile art today is inevitably entangled with the diverse tolerances that cultures have in relation to photographs and the vast divergence within different cultures too. Over the past ten years of mobile photography and art we have all experienced great controversies in the world and still, they ensue. Mobile photography is inextricably linked to personal accountability and each member of our mobile community represents a force to relation to our continually changing cultural values, whether by challenging them or reflecting them; photography is co-creating them.

At the end of each month, we will gather the images that have been contributed and select one for an immersive critique. I will personally write this with over 1000 words. Each critique will identify the elements, contextual meaning of these elements, interpretation and conclusion. Each critique will then be published not only on TheAppWhisperer, the world’s most popular mobile photography & art website but also throughout our vast social media channels. At the end of the year, we will publish a book featuring all of these critiques. As you can appreciate each critique will take some time to create well, so we ask, if you would like to take part to donate £10 per image that you submit (there is no limit to the number of images you submit), we feel this is fair. To do this, just select the appropriate allowance at the bottom of our donation section at the end of this post.

Our Assignment for January 2019 is entitled ‘Reflection’ – this can be interpreted both literally and figuratively, all entries are welcome. This assignment window will close on 15 February 2019, when we will announce the new one. To take part please send your image(s) to my email address – joanne@theappwhisperer.com and/or to Instagram with this hashtag #tawreflectionassignment.
