Due June 1, 2014
Call for Entries: Camera phones are ubiquitous, and photographers continue to take full advantage of this tool as another device for digital image capturing and editing. The Texas Photographic Society is now accepting images taken with a cell phone camera for its latest competition, “Cell Phone Photography III: Moving Past the Camera” which is open to all levels of photographers internationally. Images must be captured with a cell phone camera and can only be manipulated with a cell phone application.
Juror: Nate Larson is a contemporary artist working with photographic media, artist books and digital video. He holds an academic appointment at the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore and chaired the 2014 national conference of the Society for Photographic Education. His recent project GEOLOCATION, in collaboration with Marni Shindelman, tracks GPS coordinates associated with Twitter tweets and pairs the text with a photograph of the originating site to mark the virtual information in the real world. They recently created site-specific public artworks for the Atlanta Celebrates Photography Public Art Commission, the Indianapolis International Airport, and the DUMBO Business Improvement District in NY. The project has received media attention from Wired Raw File, The Picture Show from NPR, Hyperallergic, Gizmodo, Vice Magazine, the New York Times Lens Blog, Utne Reader, Hotshoe Magazine, the British Journal of Photography, Marketplace Tech Report, The Washington Post, among others. GEOLOCATION is featured in the final issue of Aspect: The Chronicle of New Media Art.
