Submissions are open to photographers and artists worldwide.

“Landscape photography is the supreme test of the photographer…” Ansel Adams

A field of poppies with eye-popping color. Tiny figures at the edge of a vast canyon. Horses in motion, a sun drenched forest, a subtle detail from flowers in a vase, a misty morning oceanfront…Mobile photographers create some of the world’s most compelling photographs of the natural world. The best work engages the aesthetics, craft, and tradition of landscape photography while embracing the advantages of the camera phone.

The Pocket Vistas jury seeks to curate a set of 40+ images of Landscapes, Nature & Wildlife to showcase the diversity, breadth and talent in the mobile photo and art communities.

Jurying takes place between July 29th and August 4th, 2014. A final selection will be announced prior to August 12th, 2014.

The photographs chosen for exhibit will be on view at the BMFA Arts Centre in Collingwood, Ontario from September 3rd through 28th, 2014. All selected images are printed on archival exhibition fibre paper, matted, and framed.

Entry fees are $15 for 1 image, $30 for 3 images, $50 for 6 images, and $100 for 15 images.

MPA Featured on SGNL by SONY

When we were in San Jose in April at the Silicon Valley Contemporary Art Fair, Discovery Digital Networks shot a segment about Mobile Photography on behalf of SGNL by Sony. They did a wonderful job featuring street photographer Roger Clay, landscape man Paul Marsh, and our founder Daniel Berman. Even Petapixel ran an article on the piece with some insightful commentary! The video is below. Hope you enjoy it.
