The 8th Mobile Photography Awards – The Winners in Pictures
19 February 2019
Photographer Dominika Koszowska has been crowned the overall winner of the eighth annual Mobile Photography Awards (MPA) with a portfolio of images that the judges described as ‘a playful exploration of scale that bestows a sense of majesty and wonder to her subjects’.
Dominika, a graphic designer and fine art photographer from Poland, beat 7,000 other entries from photographers from more than 65 countries to receive the Grand Prize.
‘The advantage of mobile photography is that I always have my phone with me. I can quickly edit and share it…I can easily blend in with the crowd without being paid attention. The cost of taking a picture is really non-existent,’ said Dominika.
Started in 2011, MPA recognises and celebrates the talent and imagery of the mobile photo and art communities. It runs an annual competition from October to December and themed exhibits with international open calls throughout the year.
This year’s main contest featured 20 categories, including landscapes, portraits, black and white, photojournalism, nature and wildlife. See more of the winning images below…
