The Mobile Photography Awards were founded in 2011 to recognize and celebrate the talent and imagery of the mobile photo & art communities. Alongside the annual competition (October-December), they produce themed exhibits with international open calls throughout the year.
If it’s true what Henri Cartier-Bresson says that their first 10,000 photos will be their worst, then it’s safe to say that mobile photography has given people an historic opportunity to get past 10,001. The MPA is a showcase for photographers and artists who have embraced this decisive moment.
