There are a couple of ways in which we can get more mature in our photography, apart from learning the ‘craft’ itself.  One way is to enter some competitions and the other is to get your photos publicly exhibited.

I’ve personally had my works exhibited in public galleries and I can tell you that I had gained a lot experience from it, not to mention more exposure.

The ‘Arts and Mobile‘ (or in its native tongue – Arts et Mobiles) is a conference that is jointly organised by the International Conference Mobile Creation and a French Photography blog – Photophores.

The conference will take place on the 4th and 5th of December 2014 at the National Institute of Art History (INHA) in Paris.

They are calling for your entries which will be curated and exhibited via video projection during this 2-day conference.

The goals that they want to get from holding this mobile photography conference are three-fold:

  1. To show that artists have taken control of the mobile device, a new tool for artistic and photographic creativity.
  2. To illustrate the diversity of mobile photographic art, from street photography to selfie, through architecture, black and white, to experimental approaches combining photography and digital painting.
  3. To question whether photography through mobile creation has its place in a prestigious place like the National Institute of Art History.

Here are the rules for the entries

  • No Entry Fee – i.e. the entries are FREE!
  • You can submit a maximum of 3 photos.
  • No themes restrictions.
  • Photos must be taken with mobile devices (including drone apparently)
  • Deadline is the 23rd of November 2014.
  • Send your photos to the following email address: [email protected] and includes the following info:
    • Your Last Name/First Names or your Instagram account name.
    • Description for each photos (if there is one).
    • Title your photos as follows: lastname_title_1.jpg

For more info please check the following blog post.

As I said in my previous post, this year more and more people, communities, and institutions seem to begin to realise the power of Mobile Photography as a tool of ‘curating our daily life’ as well as ‘an expression of our humanity’.

Again I urge you to show the world our passion 🙂

Good luck!
