10th MPA – Street Photography Winners & Honorable Mentions

The Mobile Photography Awards has published its tenth annual selection of international photography’s best works captured on mobile devices.

The Mobile Photo Awards is the longest-running international competition open exclusively to photographs shot & edited on all mobile phones and tablets. Founded in 2011, it recognizes and celebrates the talent and imagery of the mobile phone photo & art communities. Alongside the annual competition (October-December), it produces themed exhibits with international open calls throughout the year.
If it’s true what Henri Cartier-Bresson says, that our first 10,000 photos will be our worst, then it’s safe to say that mobile phone photography has given people a historic opportunity to get past 10,001. The MPA is a showcase for photographers and artists who have embraced this decisive moment.

The MPA Exhibits are a feature for the winning images from the annual competition. They are chosen from thousands by a jury of twenty photographic professionals, journalists, teachers, artists, and leaders of the photography, mobile photography, and art worlds.
The Mobile Photography Awards has 20 photo categories including a Photo Essay. All category winners receive MPA prize packs and are included on the exclusive MPA Exhibit Tour, with further opportunities for fine art sales.

The Grand Prize Winner Dan Liu has received $3000 (US)

The Photo Essay winner Juliet Cope has received $500 (US)
