Mobile Photo Awards on Display in San Francisco

The Mobile Photography Awards were recently invited to display a gallery of images for the Mobile Photo Connect Conference in San Francisco on October 15th at the beautiful Terra Gallery and Event Venue. The one day event attracted nearly 200 attendees and featured more than 40 speakers including representatives of Kodak Alaris, FujiFilm, Eyeem, Nokia, Samsung, Canvas Pop, Polaroid Fotobar and dozens more. We especially enjoyed chatting with the folks from Tiffen, Polaroid, Samsung, iProLens, and the Layrs app.

There were panel discussions and presentations throughout the day from some of the impressive innovators in the technical space surrounding mobile photography.

As the finer points of the tech were bandied about, the conference attendees and speakers were treated to what the fruits of all this labor and innovation look like in the hands of some of the many great artists who have submitted to the MPA. A dozen images were on display, framed and double matted, as well as three large format metal prints provided by Ink361. The response was fantastic.

We were immensely gratified to hear the MPA repeatedly referred to as the gold standard of mobile photography and art by many of the presenters, organizers and attendees at the event. The dude from Kodak was like “…hey, did you hear them all up there talking about your show??” Yeah! We did! We loved it!

We would like to thank the Mobile Photo Connect Conference and Suite48 Analytics for the opportunity to exhibit the MPA during the event. Please check out the conference website for more information. The success of the event ensures an encore next year, so stay tuned…and, of course, you may enter this year’s MPA right now through December 3rd, 2013.
