New Prizes Announced For Our Streets Ahead Mobile Photography Street Challenge

A few days ago, we announced wonderful prizes for our brand new mobile street photography group, StreetWise, if you missed that, please go here.  Today, we are also rolling out these prizes to cover our fabulous women’s only mobile street photography group, Streets Ahead.  We recently published a new Challenge to Streets Ahead – Patterns on the Street – asking artists to submit images with this theme to our Flickr Challenge Group – to find out more about this challenge, please go here.  Now there’s even more reason to submit your images to this challenge group because for this Challenge we are delighted to be working closer with Thomas Hurst, Founder of COVR Photo. Hurst has created an incredible iPhone case with built-in lens that allows you to ‘shoot from the hip’, giving you the advantage of capturing some fabulous street photography. We have a selection of iPhone 5 cases to giveaway (each worth $55.00) to three runners up for this contest and for the main prize winner we will send a COVR 6 (worth $74.95) case to you.

The COVR 6 cases are in manufacture right now and samples are shipping soon.  We will have more details on this in another post.

Joanne Carter, creator of the world’s most popular mobile photography and art website—— 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 - 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.
