Mobile Symphonies Exhibition – Results of this Epic Competition

After a great deal of deliberation, we are thrilled to announce the twelve selected images for our Mobile Symphonies Exhibition.  Each one of these images demonstrated excellence in their representation of iconic musical pieces or artists in extraordinary mobile artworks.  These images can been seen online in our Mobile Symphonies Facebook group and are to be exhibited in TheAppWhisperer’s prestigious online gallery this fall.

We thank each of you who submitted their work. Given that the standard of artwork was so incredibly high, the selection process was truly difficult. There were so many truly wonderful entries.

Many thanks also to the jurors, Peter Wilkin, Jane Schultz, Joanne Carter,  Lorenka Campos and Clint Cline for all their hard work during the judging process and sincere thanks to every single one of you who responded to our Mobile Symphonies Call.
