The Mobile Photography Awards has announced France's Cedric Blanchon as its grand prize winner. The DIPTIC/MPA photo essay first place winner is Cesar Rodriguez-Becerra of Mexico. With more than 7,000 images, this year's competition received a record number of entries from nearly 75 countries.
The winners and honorable mentions offer “…a rare opportunity for viewers to see the best from all of the leading genres in mobile photography," says Daniel Berman, the founder of the annual awards. "From our Street Photography finalists to our Visual FX stylists, the images are, in many instances, the world’s finest examples of the kind of ground-breaking creative opportunities afforded by these amazing devices.”
Premiering in April, the winning images will be available for viewing and purchasing as limited editions at gallery exhibits and fine art fairs throughout 2014. If you can't make it to one of the exhibitions you can also see them now on mobilephotoawards.com.
