$1,000 iPhoneArt Grants Program

THE iPhoneArt GRANTS program is designed to offer recognition to the best Mobile Artists around the world as iPhoneArt and iPhoneography lead this underground movement into the light.


iPhoneArt’s FIRST grant will be awarded to the artist with the best work uploaded before December 1, 2010. The top 10 artists will be determined by votes cast by other members. All members are eligible to vote and to win. The top 10 most voted for artists will then be reviewed by the iPhoneArt Panel who will select the final recipient.

Any work created with an iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch is welcome. Create your art on a different mobile device? Upload your work as an iPhoneArt Challenge – you are still eligible to win. Simply check the iPhoneArt Challenge box when you upload your work.

Each member is allowed to vote as many times as he/she likes, but will be restricted to only one vote per image per day. In other words, you may vote for many different images on any given day, but you will not be able to vote for the same image more than one time per day.

As our grant program develops, the winners will be invited to join the iPhoneArt Panel in determining future recipients.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— TheAppWhisperer platform has been a pivotal cyberspace for mobile artists of all abilities to learn about, to explore, to celebrate and to share mobile artworks. Joanne’s compassion, inclusivity, and humility are hallmarks in all that she does, and is particularly evident in the platform she has built. In her words, “We all have the potential to remove ourselves from the centre of any circle and to expand a sphere of compassion outward; to include everyone interested in mobile art, ensuring every artist is within reach”, she has said. Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus. She has presented lectures bolstering mobile artists and their art from as far away as the Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea to closer to her home in the UK at Focus on Imaging.

And her travels pioneering the breadth of mobile art includes key events in: Frankfurt, Naples, Amalfi Coast, Paris, Brazil, London. Pioneering the world’s first mobile art online gallery - has extended her reach even further, shipping from London, UK to clients in the US, Europe and The Far East to a global group of collectors looking for exclusive art to hang in their homes and offices. The online gallery specialises in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen signed limited edition art. Her journey towards becoming The App Whisperer, includes (but is not limited to) working for a paparazzi photo agency for several years and as a deputy editor for a photo print magazine. Her own freelance photographic journalistic work is also widely acclaimed. She has been published extensively both within the UK and the US in national and international titles.
