In addition see video updates on some of last years Mobile Masters and uncover many resources and tutorials to improve your work and get a complete understanding of the current state of the mobile arts.

The selection of artist for this new edition was by a notable jury of 3 traditional Fine artist and 3 Mobile Artist. Eric Shiner, Director The Warhol Museum, Stephen Perloff, Founder of the oldest fine art photo journal The Photo Review, Donna Ferrato, Photojournalist, Koci Hernandez, Visual Storyteller and Mobile Master, Karen Divine Fine Arts Photographer and Mobile Master and Dan Marcolina, Founder of The Mobile Masters.

By employing a balance of world class fine arts and mobile photography judges, the goal of this exhibit was to objectively identify and showcase the world’s top artists who are breaking new ground in mobile image discovery and invention. To PROVE the unique results from the form and function of mobile photography has crossed the threshold of acceptability and is a distinctive new movement in the history of the art form. The Mobile Movement.

Mobile Masters created by Dan Marcolina is a 2 year old venture to reveal the best art and tech of this new underground mobile photo movement. This year along with another epic Macworld workshop we decided to do an open call for entries into the eBook. This created a way to gather a more diverse and undiscovered group of work. Dan says “For me it was less of a contest and more of a collection and curation process with a minimal fee to support the creation of this show and folio.”
