Entering its 10th anniverssary, The Terry O’Neill Photography Award is one of the most prestigious photography prizes. The award attracts thousands of entries each year from all over the world. It features distinguished judges, including Terry O’Neill himself and Lord Puttnam.

Finally it promises cool prizes, which includes not only cash but also opportunity to be exhibited at a London gallery and published in a national media.

Last year the Award entered a new chapter by including Mobile Photography in its format category, and this year is the same. All mobile photographers are welcome to submit their best!

The winner from Mobile format (irrespective of categories) will be awarded with a maximum cash prize of £500. The winning photo will be exhibited at the Strand Gallery and published in the Guadian newspaper (they’ve changed partner from last year’s Sunday Times magazine).

Last year Mobile format winner was none other than our dear friend and fellow IGers, Richard Gray A.K.A @rugfoot whom will also be judging this year . Here is some of his winning entris ‘The Person Opposite‘:

Final Thought

I think it’s quite refreshing to see that Mobile Photography has started to get the recognition and exposure it deserves from the ‘big guys’.   I am really happy that Mobile Photographers is beginning to be taken seriously for its wonderful creations.

Let’s take up the challenge and show the world what we can do.

Good luck!
