Mobile Photography Awards 2020
The Mobile Photo Awards is the longest running international competition open exclusively to photographs shot & edited on all mobile phones and tablets. Founded in 2011, we recognize and celebrate the talent and imagery of the mobile phone photo & art communities. Alongside our annual competition (October-December), we produce themed exhibits with international open calls throughout the year.
If it’s true what Henri Cartier-Bresson says, that our first 10,000 photos will be our worst, then it’s safe to say that mobile phone 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.
The MPA Exhibits are a feature for the winning images from the annual competition and are chosen from thousands by a jury of twenty photographic professionals, journalists, teachers, artists and leaders of the photography, mobile photography and art worlds.
The Mobile Photography Awards has 20 photo categories including a Photo Essay with it’s own prize of $500. Every image entered may be placed in up to two (2) categories. All category winners receive MPA prize packs and are included on the exclusive MPA Exhibit Tour, with further opportunities for fine art sales.
The Grand Prize Winner receives $3000 (US)
The Photo Essay winner receives $500 (US)
Images shot and edited on any mobile phone or tablet including iPhones, iPads, Android phones and tablets, Windows Phones, and the iPod touch are eligible for entry.
