Share

I am very pleased to announce the new MIRA Mobile Prize Competition is open for entries.  This is the second year of this popular competition and I am delighted once again to have been asked to join the Jury.

This competition is purely for mobile photography and the theme is ‘Street Photography of the World’ – there should be some fabulous entries and we’re expecting many from our popular Streets Ahead column.

The rules are straight forward, you may enter a maximum of three photographs, the deadline is 15 March 2015 and there are no fees to be paid.

The overall winner will receive a week in Porto (six days, five nights, including accommodation and food) and a return trip from any European capital.

Full details can be found in this link.

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.

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.
