Photographic art is no longer confined to those who splurge on big, fancy and expensive cameras and equipments. Now, the power of creation lies in everyone's hands, limited only by the imagination. Mobile phones and tablets are unprecedented tools to capture and create artwork anywhere anytime. The fleeting moment is just a click away.
The GoPix Awards celebrates creative use of mobile cameras and tablets for photographic art. We are seeking the world's best. The GoPix Awards will run as an annual competition that will be split up into two semiannual rounds. Each round is organised similar to a mini-competition resulting in Grand Nominees who will then vy for the prestigious title of TZIPAC International Mobile GoPixer of the Year. The competition will be judged by none other than Sarah Jarrett, winner of the 2013 International Mobile Photographer of the Year.
The GoPix Awards is opened to any photographer with access to a mobile phone or tablet with inbuilt camera. Any post-processing work can be done in-camera or on a computer. Collages and montages are also eligible, provided all elements in the final artwork have been captured with a mobile phone camera.
The competition will not distinguish between professionals and non-professionals.
How it works
The GoPix Awards will run throughout 2013, in two semiannual rounds with closing deadline at the end of each 6-months period. Each round will be juried by the TZIPAC Editorial team and our specially invited Juror(s) whose scoring will determine the category winners, Finalists and GoPix Grand Nominees, among whom the ultimate GoPix Grand Winner will be selected and awarded the title of “2013 TZIPAC International Mobile GoPixer of the Year”.
In every semiannual round, the entry process is split into two stages.
Stage 1 entry fee is just $1 per image with the judging being carried out by the TZIPAC Editorial team. The very low entry fee is designed to encourage a broader community of Mobile Pixers (artists) to participate, in the hope of discovering a multitude of marvelous artworks from budding undiscovered artists as well as established professionals, without geographic boundaries or limitations. Achieving a status of Stage 1 Accepted will allow you to promote your artwork with our official E-badge.
All Stage 1 Accepted images will be invited for ongoing submission to Stage 2 at a cost of $5 per image, with the total fees capped at $75. Stage 2 will be judged by our specially invited Juror(s) whose scores will determine the Finalists, Category Winners and GoPix Grand Nominees who will vy for top honours in The GoPix Awards.
TZIPAC look forward to seeing and showcasing the diverse and numerous artworks that will be submitted and the passionate flares and creativity of participating Mobile GoPixers.
