Open Call to Mobile Photographers: Deadline June 2 | Commanding Vision

Attention all Mobile Photographers! 

I am pleased to spread the word about the open call to mobile artists for an upcoming exhibition in Corvallis, Oregon in August. The deadline is fast approaching on June 2, 2014. Details below. 

What: Call for photographs made with mobile devices (phones or tablets)
WhenAugust 21 – September 28, 2014
Where: The Arts Center, Main Gallery, Corvallis, Oregon
Deadline to Apply:  June 2, 2014
How to Apply:  Online  

Artists have embraced technology as an art-making process since photography became available in the 1800s. Each new technological advance increased the tools available for creativity and artistic expression through photography and mobile photography is no exception.  This method of image making has the potential for the greatest widespread influence of any type of photographic innovation. People who would never have considered themselves an artist, or even creative at all, now have the means to be just that with mobile device camera technology at their fingertips.

We are looking for the full breadth and depth of what mobile photography has to offer. While the chemical darkroom allowed some latitude for expression, the digital darkroom increases the possibilities for manipulation of images even more dramatically. Mobile devices have a myriad of programs and apps–all on the device itself–that give the photographer an incredible opportunity for creative expression. Mobile photography ranges from the representational to the abstract, from street photography, still lifes, portraits and landscapes to fully abstracted impressions. We hope to see examples of all these approaches, highlighting how mobile photography contributes to the expanding artistic vision of photography.

  • The Call is open to all individuals using a mobile device to create images.
  • All images must have been created in the last two years.
  • Work previously exhibited at The Arts Center will not be accepted or presented to the jurors.

Terms and Parameters:
  • The original image must be created and edited in its entirety on a mobile device, either phone or tablet.
  • The submitting artist must be the owner of the image.
  • All submissions must be via digital image uploaded via the online submission form
  • The $10 application fee must be received by the deadline. Applicants may submit up to 5 images for this amount.

  1. I hope we see lots of amazing entries! Thanks for posting the call to artists, Geri.

  2. I hope so too - the entry fee is reasonable so that shouldn't be a deterrent.
