We have some tremendous prizes ready to be sent out to these recipients, very well done to Maurizio Zanetti, Rita Colantonio, Brendan O Se, M. Cecilia Sao Thiago, Himanshu Roy and Liliana Schwitter.
As you know we are currently running a fabulous mobile photography competition with a huge array of incredible prizes, to help you get even more out of your art. To enter this competition, all you need to do as add this hashtag on Instagram #theappwhisperer_portraitcam to your images, that way we can find them!
This competition is hosted in conjunction with BrainFeverMedia, highly accomplished app developers, with their brand new app, PortraitCam Ultimate Camera. We are also most grateful to the support of our sponsors for this competition, including Olloclip, IK MultiMedia Joby and Rhinoshield.
PortraitCam Ultimate Camera app enables the photographer to create stunning depth of field lens blur with their iPhone (with dual camera). You can recreate DLSR-quality focus and bokeh, with simple controls. Choose focus mode, bokeh-shape, and set blur level in a few easy steps. Finalize your photo with stunning flares captured from real lenses to give your photo a professional look.
This competition is hosted on Instagram and we are extending the final entry date to 31st January 2018!
Merry Christmas! This Grand Flickr Group Showcase of 2017 represents our top favourited images from our Flickr Group – Mobile Photography & Imagery. Each week we have produced a showcase and we have selected images from all of those showcases to bring you this epic finale of the year of 2017! I want you all to enjoy this showcase, each one of you, some I know more than others, but all I recognise and am in awe of your talents.
Whether you celebrate Christmas or not, enjoy this mobile photography and art showcase with untapped emotion and tenderness. We have the chemistry just right, with meaningful dialogue throughout, this is a journey almost as extraordinary as 2017. Let it blow you away, breathe, relax, enjoy!
(Please note that we have included many many artists within this showcase, it is not possible to include every single artist and for that we apologise in advance).
Lights, Christmas, Action…

In the UK we have a literary award of which, it is of no honour to win. It is the Bad Sex Award and each year since 1993 an author is honoured who has, in the opinion of the judges, produced an outstandingly bad scene of sexual description, in an otherwise good novel. The results of which, I always find interesting to read, notwithstanding the reviews too. Is it wrong to find it laudable? This year one author and writer for The Guardian, Rhiannon Lucy Cosslett claims the thought of being awarded the bad sex award has inspired her to work harder, she writes, “Many women are acutely aware of what bad sex feels like because, I’m depressed to say, lots of us have experienced it first hand, and reading scenes where a female character is in raptures the minute the tip of a penis makes contact will always lead to raised eyebrows.”. The irony of this award is that it is actually getting harder to award it, many have said that the awards handed over this year for bad sex are actually not ‘too bad’. The best thing about this is that it is actually possible that male authors are paying more attention to the female experience and what a great thing that is, for all of us. This week Mobile Photography and Art Flickr Group showcase is the opposite of a Bad Sex Award, there’s no self-doubt evident here, the result of this multimedia display is a groundbreaking thrust in the face of engaging the real world in new and surprising ways. Enjoy!
