To recognize and celebrate the talent of the mobile photo & art communities, Mobile Photography Awards was founded in 2011. The competition is held every year from October to December. Smartphone photographers can submit their entries to win a $3000 grand prize.

The 9th Annual Mobile Photography Awards is now accepting entries in several categories.

Taking a good picture was inconvenient before the smartphone. A photographer would have to buy a fancy camera, a desktop computer, a software editor. He would have to invest some serious time to get the perfect shot.
