As you know I will be presenting at The Photography Show in ten days time about mobile photography/art and the photographers and artists behind it all – I’m so enthralled by your talent, I can’t wait to show what you can do. One way of doing this is to create a ‘contest’ – this is not really a competition contest, it’s a place for you to show your very best work.
I would like you all to submit ‘The Best of You’ – your best image to our dedicated Flickr Group for the show (see here). Please only submit one image and I would like it to be a new work of art, not one that has been submitted elsewhere previously. I will curate this set and present a Flickr Group Showcase on stage at The Photography Show, demonstrating the high level and strength of your creations.
All entries must be submitted by 18th March, 2015 and no entries will be considered after that date.
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: email@example.com
i look forward to seeing everyone’s work for this show, The Best of You!
D’oh! I haven’t made any new images in ages (well, something that hasn’t been seen yet, that is). You are going to do great presenting, Joanne, and will do us all proud! 😀
Hats off to our very own iPhoneography ambassador!
