MPLS Mobile Photo Juror Results!

We are delighted to publish the juror results of the MPLS Photo Center call for entry. Karen Divine the Juror expressed… ‘It’s very exciting to have the opportunity to Juror the Mobile Photo Competition for Mpls Photo Center.  As those of us know who have been playing with Mobile Photography for years, it can mimic any kind of photographic process from alternative to multi-layers as in Photoshop, to beautiful single image street photography and portraits.

We received a wide variety of imagery and techniques so I decided to select work that represented different genres and styles, from single images to heavily apped work. The submissions were wonderful, revealing great talent in the world of Mobile Photography and talent as artists.   Mobile Photography is capable of so much creativity, only limited by our imagination. Congratulations to all who submitted their work and shared their visions with me. For those selected, bravo on capturing and expressing some wonderful moments and for those not selected just know that competitions are just that, competitive, subjective and is not designed to discourage you in any way.  Instead I highly recommend you continue to learn and grow as an artist always challenging yourself to express work that is meaningful and speaks to yourself first”.

Promotion of mobile artists and the art form as a primary medium in today’s art world, has become her life’s focus.

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.
