TOP TEN Finalists


These are your TOP TEN finalists for the Big Prize – the MPA Photographer/Artist of the Year. After an initial narrowing to 35 artists, our seven member Grand Prize Jury has chosen our final list of ten. We present a selection of their work below in no particular order. Our winner will be announced this Friday, February 15, 2013. You may read more about the jurists at the bottom of this page.






Hello and welcome to the 2013 Mobile Photo Awards winners site!
Congratulations to all of the worthy winners, runners up and honorable mentions. You guys are all incredible and did a fantastic job! Thank you for making the Mobile Photo Awards the world’s biggest competition for mobile photography and art!
The competition was a huge success this year with a record number of entries – the quality was extremely high and the jury worked long and hard to determine a slate of winners and runners up. We know that we will never please everyone – we realize that even judges disagree on an image so it’s obvious that entrants and viewers of this site will also take issue with certain choices. That said, every winning image and runner up along with the honorable mentions are chosen with careful thoughtfulness. We hope you enjoy browsing the many amazing images we have on display for you.
