Mobile Photography & Art Challenge – One Day Odyssey

We are launching a new Challenge today that is relevant to all genres of mobile photography and art. This is a Challenge like no other!  It is for one complete day, at least seven hours and we want you to submit a minimum of ten and no more than fifteen images. The idea of this project is that you take yourself on an journey and spend all day taking mobile photographs and/or creating mobile art.

We want you to dedicate a whole day to photography and art because you deserve it.  So, please mark a day on your calendar and spend that day taking and creating mobile images.

We don’t mind what type of photography you do, you may prefer to walk off into luscious landscape, if you do, perhaps you will want to arrive at sunrise and walk all day until sunset.

You may prefer to have a day taking portraiture images, this could be a prearranged shoot, or you may prefer to take some group portraiture in the streets.

You could go all out and settle on street photography, perhaps try and visit as many towns as you can in one day to photograph.

Whilst on this odyssey, consider collecting some non photographic items/momentos from your trip and including these in the images you create, such as a bus/tube/subway ticket.

This Odyssey will run from 30th May 2017 – 30th June 2017

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.

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.
