As you will be aware we are expanding at a rate of knots here at theappwhisperer.com to ensure that our readers are fully aware of as many opportunities as possible relating to their photography and art. One of our new areas will bring you details of creative grants and residencies available throughout the world for artists.

We previously mentioned Getty Images’ Creative Grants with an Additional Award of $20K for works that focus on enpowering women and girls, if you missed that please go here.

Today, we’d like to bring to your attention another wonderful photo opportunity. Photoworks are partnering FotoDocument and BioRegional to commission ten public space photo essays launching during Brighton Photo Biennial 2014 and to remain in situ for ten months.

Each of the ten essays will be themed on one of the principles of One Planet Living and works will be installed in a corresponding key public space in Brighton & Hove, UK.

Zero Waste – Waste House, University of Brighton (tbc)
Sustainable Transport – Brighton Railway Station
Sustainable Materials – Emmaus, Portslade
Local and Sustainable Food – Open Market, London Rd
Sustainable Water – Seafront
Land Use and Wildlife – Foredown Tower
Culture and Community – Dome, Café-Bar
Equity and Local Economy – The Amex Community Football Stadium (tbc)
Health and Happiness – Sussex County Cricket Ground
Zero Carbon – venue tbc

The exhibitions will collectively form an ‘arts story trail’ around the city and be accompanied by a map and literature to illustrate the route and significance.

Each selected photographer will receive a fee of £2.5k to include travel and subsistence. Further funds are available to cover printing and installation costs.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website— TheAppWhisperer.com— 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 - TheAppWhispererPrintSales.com 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. Please contact her at: joanne@theappwhisperer.com
