The Latin American Mobgrafia (mobile photography) Festival, FLAMOB, is an unprecedented initiative in the image world which aims to promote visual production on mobile platforms.
mObgraphia Cultura Visual produces in 2017 the 4th Festival edition at MIS – Museu da Imagem e do Som de São Paulo the most important visual arts venue in the country and during 45 days, displaying the exhibits as part of the official museum program.
This year on Latin American Festival, mObgraphia Cultura Visual at first will prioritise visual narratives in a more comprehensive way, and participants could explore themes showing stories they want to tell in a visual format: an essay.
Subtitles and short texts about the essay are welcome. “What’s your story?” opens diverse opportunities for visual storytelling.
This is an important shift in the path of festival award, focusing on building sets of stories, whether real or imaginary, that shows the current moment in mobgrafia (mobile photography as we call in Brazil) production, in addition to separate images so commonly found in social networks.
All other categories (except for essays), will have images submitted through participants open Instagram accounts with specific tags. (Street, bw, portrait, documental, arts and landscape).
Submissions closes on 2 April 2017.
