Mobile Photography Awards Sixth Annual Awards – Results!

Share

We’re delighted to reveal that the Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) 2016 Results have now been announced. As always we (I speak as a member of the Jury) were succumbed by the wealth of talent displayed across our screens. We’ve had more entries to this competition than ever before and the quality of submissions has been totally outstanding across all the categories. Personally, it was an honour for me to be asked to be a key member of this jury for the 5th consecutive year by founder of the Mobile Photography Awards, Daniel Berman and also to serve with James Bacchi, Annette Schutz, Evgeny Tchebotarev, Jen Pollack Bianco, Brendan O Se, Susannah Perlman, Stefano Fantoni, Sheldon Serkin, Andy Butler and Christopher Wahl.

Many congratulations to all the 2016 MPA category winners and honourable mentions and of course, a special shout out to the grand prize winner Giles Clarke. A professional photo journalist, born in London in 1965, he began taking pictures seriously in Berlin in the mid 1980’s. In 1995, he moved to New York City where he began an intense year in the Richard Avedon studio. A decade long career producing television for Channel 4 UK in Hollywood was to follow. In more recent times, Giles began the serious work & dedication of activism starting with a 6-week stint in Bhopal, India where he filmed & photographed the victims of the Union Carbide gas tragedy that still continues to haunt the inhabitants of that city. He scoops the grand prize money of $3,000.

I have listed every first prize winner, with their winning image as well as each and every runner up for all sections of this competition below. Huge congratulations to you all!

I have been crying this morning as I created this showcase of all your messages and tributes to Ajan van der Horst. A wonderful man first and foremost and secondly, a wonderful mobile photographer, who we sadly lost last week. I created the facebook group ‘Memorandum of Sympathy and Sorrow on the Death of Arjan van der Horst’ and used all the images and tributes from that to build this showcase.  Thank you all…

Streets Ahead Interview: Heline Lam – Mobile Street Photography

Share

This week, the Women’s Street Photography Collective (Streets Ahead) is pleased and honoured to feature Heline Lam in our interview segment.

Heline’s street photography shows her ability to hone in on moments around her, capturing the essence of whatever city she happens to be in.

Her surreal images are different sides to her body of work. They combine her love of architecture and geometry with the human element that she captures on the street. You can see some of her work here:

http://www.thephoblographer.com/2014/07/15/surreal-world-heline-lam/#.VCB-h7EazCR

Heline’s work has been featured in The App Whisperer’s Flickr group showcase as well as the Streets Ahead column, Mobiography, Art of Mob, EyeEm, The Phoblographer and We are Juxt-1000 words IPA. She exhibited at the Berlin Fotofestival 2013 – Berlin Calling Mobile Photography Award in the month of July 2013 (http://berlin-fotofestival.de/exhibition/heline-lam-2/), both as part of the main exhibition and a separate solo exhibition of her ‘Integration’ series. She also had a solo exhibition in Singapore last year (28 October to 15 November) where she exhibited her ‘Integration’ and ‘Onward’ series. Her photo, ‘One in a Million,’ was selected and exhibited at the Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) “Shadow Stories” exhibition in New York in May 2014.

I highly recommend a visit to her galleries
