The 4th annual Mobile Photography Awards is ending this month as winners will be announced. A $3000 grand prize will be released, $500 for best photo essay, and $10,000 in total cash and prizes.
The MPA were founded in 2011 to recognize and celebrate the talent and imagery of the photo and arts community. The requirements for the MPA are that the photograph must be taken and processed on nothing but a mobile phone.
These awards are awesome because they bring mobile photographs to the level of fine art, allowing others in the art world to build a greater respect for mobile photography.
