The MPA is an international open call for photographs and images created on mobile devices (phone and tablet). The Mobile Photography Awards are open for entry to photographers and artists worldwide with a Grand Prize of $3,000 and much more!
Over the course of three years, the Mobile Photography Awards has become the world’s largest annual event & competition of it’s kind and has produced nine successful exhibits in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, Toronto, Collingwood, and Melbourne. The MPA offers artists opportunities for exhibits, open gallery calls, fine art sales, and annual cash and prizes of more than $15,000.
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.
