mDAC Call For Artists – ‘Art in Isolation’ Exhibition

I am very proud to announce the launch of the prestigious mDAC 2020 Mobile Art & Creativity Exhibition. I am one of two judges for this exhibition based in Silicon Valley, California, United States, along with highly accomplished digital artist Lisa Cirenza. mDAC 2020 celebrates the very best of mobile art offering the opportunity to have your work seen by media, industry leaders and peers – all leading to a boost in your exposure to potential art collectors, galleries and client inventory.

The potential of art to accurately capture the human subject bears witness to the theme ‘Art in Isolation’.  Our resolve is to champion the role of digital creativity at a time when so many around the world are facing overwhelming challenges. The mDAC 2020 ‘Art in Isolation’ Exhibition will publish a plurality of art capturing fleeting moments of joy, time, fragmentation, incarceration, fear or mourning, transforming personal experience into creative expression.

When considering which art to enter into this years mDAC 2020, try to ensure it is work that will make an impact on the judges. Lisa and I are seeking work that is technically excellent (mastery of composition, image quality, interpretation of the theme) and viscerally emotive: art that stands out  from the crowd. Quiet, bold, or anything in between, if your work hits the right note it will be selected.. Follow your instincts—no cliches, no superfluous cleverness—submit art from your heart expressed to the best of your ability.

The top 100 images will be showcased on the official mDAC online gallery and the Top 10 will have the opportunity to be part of our internationally renowned TheAppWhisperer Online Gallery  —available for global purchase.
