Call for Entries – National Association of Digital Artists

We are proud to sponsor the National Association of Digital Artists competition ‘Images of Resilience’. This is an international fundraising competition created to offer support to one of mobile arts most astounding artists, Meri Walker, aka iPhoneArtGirl. During September of this year, Walker lost her home and entire contents as seas of fire tore throughout her residence and land in Talent, Oregon, United States.

This competition will see the entire proceeds gifted to Meri Walker in order to help her to rebuild her life. There is also a gofundme campaign and you can view it here.

The theme for this competition is Resilience and we have detailed the competition categories below. Each category offers a cash prize.

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.

Her professional photography has also been widely exhibited throughout Europe, including Italy, Portugal and the UK.
