We are very excited today to announce our Ultimate Christmas Mobile Photography & Art Competition here at TheAppWhisperer.com. This competition is hosted in conjunction with BrainFeverMedia, highly accomplished app developers, with their brand new app, announced today – Depth Effects. We are also most grateful to the support of our sponsors for this competition, including DxO, IK MultiMedia, Joby and Scriba.
The Depth Effects app enables the photographer to apply striking depth of field effects to any image. Essentially, giving you bokeh effects in the palm of your hands. The results are exceptional and we can’t wait to see your images!
We have some tremendous prizes up for grabs too! Including a DxO One camera, this camera attaches to your iPhone or iPad. Once it is connected, the iOS device’s Retina display immediately transforms into the camera’s viewfinder, allowing you to compose the image and adjust every setting. This prize alone is worth $500/£400! and will be couriered directly to the winner of this competition.
We have more phenomenal prizes too, including an IK Multimedia iRig Mic Field, a phenomenal ultra compact device, allowing you to record professional sound recordings in the field, making it ideal for mobile videography or simple sound recordings. This product retails for $125. We also have an IK Multimedia iKlip Grip Pro a fabulous professional multifunction iPhone stand worth $70 and that’s not all! We are also giving away from Joby a GripTight PRO Phone premium clamping mount worth $42, a GripTight POV Kit – this is a handgrip with remote control for mobile phones, worth $50 and a Joby PowerBand, this is a portable charger for smartphone batteries, worth $41 and there’s one more thing – a Multi Award Winning Scriba Stylus – this is a brand new Kickstarter successful project that is about to launch. This Multi Award Winning Scriba Stylus is a wonderful way for mobile artists to create and edit their images. It includes a flexible body with dynamic squeeze motion, responsive to your touch. Ergonomics are ingrained in Scriba’s design, making it so much more than just a stylish accessory. Contoured around the natural movements of the hand and made from comfortable, lightweight materials. Scriba supports both left-handed and right-handed users and is sculpted for a variety of grips. Uniquely tactile, Scriba’s flexible body bends in response to your every touch. Scriba detects this movement enabling you to continuously and fluidly adjust brush thickness, or access app functionality.

Rules for Entry
We are hosting this competition in conjunction with BrainFeverMedia to find your very best images using this brand new app – Depth Effects. We want to see your images reflecting the use of depth of field and we can’t wait!
This competition will be hosted on Instagram, we would like you to add this hashtag #theappwhisperer_deptheffects to each image you would like to include (that way we can find them). The competition will run from today – 15 December 2016 until 16 January 2017.
The overall winner and other finalist images will be in the opinion of myself, Joanne Carter, Founder and Editorial Director of TheAppWhisperer.com, to have captured images that represent the true aspects of the Depth Effects app developed by BrainFeverMedia.
The prizes are as stated below and no alternatives or substitutes will be provided. All prizes will be delivered by courier directly to the winners of the competition, once they have provided their physical address and telephone number, to me directly.
NB: There may possibly be a delay with the delivery of the IK Multimedia iKlip Grip Pro (part of the second prize), due to current unprecedented demand but we will keep you informed of this.
The overall winner of this Depth Effects Competition will win a DxO One Camera, worth $500. Take a look at this video below made by a colleague I used to work with, Joseph Linaschke, entitled ‘Getting Started with your DxO One Camera’.
The second prize winner of this Depth Effects Competition will win one IK Multimedia iRig Mic Field and one IK Multimedia iKlip Grip Pro. The iRig Mic Field combines high-quality components and unparalleled portability with a unique form factor. iRig Mic Field packs a 24-bit audiophile-grade A/D converter, a 44.1/48 kHz sampling rate, a 115 dB maximum SPL rating and a low-noise/high-definition pre-amp into an enclosure that’s small enough to slip easily into your pocket. Now you can get that high-quality stereo sound anytime and anywhere. With iRig Mic Field, you can get a mic that’s half the price of comparable microphones that cost and weigh twice as much and lack the flexibility of audio and video support.
