The MPA Weekly Showcase for May 20 – June 6 (PART I)
Welcome to the Mobile Photo Awards Showcase for May 20-June 6, 2012.
We have two week’s worth of images to feature for this showcase and will therefore publish two separate posts to make sure we share all of our favorites. Today we share the first half – by the weekend the second post will be live. In all, we were stunned by the depth and breadth of work submitted. Thank you for sharing your art with the MPA so that we in turn may share with our readers!
This week’s selection once again features a range of genres and styles. At the MPA, we try and celebrate both “captured” images and “fabricated” images. We try our very best not to have a bias one way or the other. While it’s true that some in the mobile community tend to favor one style over another, we remain impartial and impervious to genre. A good picture is a good picture whether it’s a street shot or a collage. So, please continue to submit and know that we are simply looking for images that are original, compelling and tell a story. The debate over “what is photography” is, for us, nothing but idle chatter. The bottom line is that we are thrilled to share this beautiful work with you.
You will find a link to the submission page at the bottom of this week’s entries. Thanks for sending and keep the images coming!
If we haven’t yet featured one of your pieces please keep submitting, we are always on the look-out for new work.
We hope you enjoy this week’s showcase.
