The winner of the smartfofofest “Connections” competition, run in association with Mobiography and Mobile Photography Awards has been announced.
A note about the judges and process.
After a lot of deliberation and discussions, the judging panel, made up of Mobiography’s Andy Butler, Dan Berman of the Mobile Photography Awards, iPhoneographyCentral’s Nicki Fitz-Gerald and iPhone photographer Elaine Taylor, have selected the final 30 images that will appear in the SmartFotoFest Exhibition this June at the Dánlann Gallery at NUI Galway.
The judging process involved several rounds of selections and discussions in order to agree on the final 30 images. All photos were reviewed and judged anonymously and were chosen based on their own merits in the context and spirit of the exhibition theme of Connections.
These photos perfectly demonstrate the high standard of photography and artistic expression that can be achieved with today’s smartphones.
The winning image by Grand Jury Prize Winner Dina Alfasi and the runner up images can be viewed on the Smartfotofest website here
They will also be on exhibition in An Dánlann Gallery in NUI Galway for the month of June. The exhibition will be launched on the 5th June, the evening before Mojofest begins.
