Mobile Symphonies Online Exhibition and Gallery Announced

We are delighted to announce the launch of our Mobile Symphonies Online Exhibition and Gallery today. This is the culmination following our original call for entries to the Mobile Symphonies Competition announced in late May 2020. This competition was focused on the influence music has upon mobile artists works. We had an overwhelming volume of entries and after much debate the winners were announced in mid September 2020.

The jurors involved with this competition included Peter Wilkin, Jane Schultz, Lorenka Campos, Clint Cline and myself.  The twelve winning works were awarded to Armineh Hovanesian, Carlos Paz, Carol Wiebe, Dale Bradshaw Botha, James Ellis, Joyce Harkin, Kathleen Magner Rios, M. Cecilia São Thiago, Maria De Guzman, Mariette Schrijver, Sarah Bichachi and Tanya Solonyka.

In addition, we announced three special categories of awards and winners. These included:

Gold Record – Sarah Bichachi

Best Pairing – M. Cecilia São Thiago

Best Score – Armineh Hovanesian

All of these winning entries are now available to view and purchase from our online gallery, here. Each purchase supports the individual artist and also the community itself. TheAppWhisperer Print Sales is a professional online gallery specialising in prints for discerning collectors of unique, previously unseen and not available for sale elsewhere, mobile photography and art. We ship from our professional labs in London to clients in the UK, US, Europe and Far East.
