The PHmuseum 2020 Mobile Photography Prize is now open for submissions at phmuseum.com/m20.
The 2nd edition of the open call is dedicated to a single theme: INSIDE – Home, Family, and Community in a Historical Collective Moment. Mobile devices are indeed the main vehicle through which we document our everyday life. We aim therefore to explore this collective crisis through the images you have felt natural taking in these months. Images that together can define our collective memory and become an inspiration for the world after the crisis and the generation to come.
The open call offers $5,000 in cash for the mobile photos of the year, inclusion in our second 200-image photobook on mobile photography, and feature in a physical exhibition in Italy. Also, many publications will support us in promoting the work of applicants. BuzzFeed News will publish a gallery of photos from the call; both Yogurt Magazine and GUP Magazine will feature 3 photographers’ portfolios with GUP also offering a yearly paper subscription; How To Spend It will publish another selection of images; C41 Magazine will feature 5 online photographers’ portfolios.
To participate, you are invited to enter one or more images taken with a mobile device. You can upload photos from your desktop computer, phone gallery and Instagram library. Submissions will be reviewed by a panel comprising of Francesca Marani (Vogue Italia), Kate Bubacz (BuzzFeed), Piero Percoco (Photographer) and Sarker Protick (Artist and Curator). The deadline is set for 11 June, while there is a free entry option until 12 May.
