BiiAM Belgitude iPhoneography Exhibition – Call For Entries

Sean Hayes one of our wonderfully talented and creative contributors and tremendous iPhone photographer is organising, in collaboration with fellow shooters Thérèse Cherton and Robert Buckley, the ‘BiiAM Belgitude iPhoneography Exhibition’.

This exhibition is calling for artists to submit images celebrating eccentricities and icons of Belgium, (chocolate springs to mind, although I have to admit, it’s never too far away). Submissions are due no later than July 30, 2012. All formats are considered, this does not just mean portrait, landscape, 6×6 etc but also mobile platform format. The title for this exhibition is a little misleading but i if you use an Android or other smartphone device you are very welcome to enter. The only rule is that you must take the image with the smartphone and process it on the smartphone.

All accepted images will be printed for the exhibition on A4 photographic paper. Please post your submissions on the BiiAM Facebook site with the title ‘Belgitude Expo’.

If you are not already a member, please visit the BiiAM site and apply. Only three entries will be considered for selection. Please clearly indicate on your submissions 1, 2 and 3.

The artists that have been selected will be contacted and you will be asked to send the image by email in high resolution for printing. The vernissage will be held at The Jonas Gallery in Brussels on Thursday 30th September 2012.

Good luck everyone, we will be following this event closely, we want to see you best submissions.



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. Her experience as a jurist for mobile art competitions includes: Portugal, Canada, US, S Korea, UK and Italy. 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. These include The Times, The Sunday Times, The Guardian, Popular Photography & Imaging, dpreview, NikonPro, Which? and more recently with the BBC as a Contributor, Columnist at Vogue Italia and Contributing Editor at LensCulture. Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK. She is currently writing several books, all related to mobile art and is always open to requests for new commissions for either writing or photography projects or a combination of both.
