MPA Results Roadmap
First of all, thank you for entering the Mobile Photo Awards – the world’s largest competition and gallery call for mobile photography and art. The sheer volume of amazing images from nearly 40 countries proves that our community is extremely talented and truly global. The quality of entries this year was really staggering.
For nearly a month now, our jury has been assessing, studying and selecting images from the thousands of entries we received. We thank you for your patience!
Our process for awarding each category is as follows:
1) the lead judge for each category narrows his/her images down to shortlists of between 15-30 by scoring each photo and then selecting the top images (the shortlist number changes depending upon the quantity of entries.)
2) Each judge is joined by two other members of the panel where a top 5 is determined. That top 5 consists of a winner, a runner-up and three honorable mentions. The winner and runner up will both be included in the gallery exhibits.
The shortlists of 15-30 for every category will be published as clickable thumbnail galleries on Friday January 25th – this will include the announcements of our winner, runner up and three honorable mentions. You will be able to see all of the images as thumbnails which then open to fullscreen. A link will be sent to you via email – the link will also be prominently displayed on our Facebook page, Twitter, the Mobile Photo Awards submission site and right here on the MPA Blog.
The MPA Photographer of the Year and the ArtHaus Photo Essay will be announced in early February, approximately 10-14 days after the category winners are revealed. More info to follow…
Cheers and good luck!
Daniel and the MPA Team
