Frame A Story Photo Contest
One story in one frame by International Mobile Film Festival
We realized that there is a crossover in creatives who use the smartphone camera to share stories and we followed the iPhone photography movement back in 2010 when the iPhone 4 came out. Being already a mobile film festival, we were always aiming to bring smartphone photographers into our smartphone film and video community.
Today, everyone from grandma to a toddler is shooting photos with smartphone cameras…but do their photos tell a story? That is the challenge!
We invite you to participate in our smartphone photo contest and join our global growing community at the International Mobile Film Festival.
One of the judges for this contest is Ant Pruitt of “Hands On Photography.” Listen to episode 133 of the SBP Podcast Mobile Filmmaking with Ant Pruitt as a guest:
