Mobile Engage photo contest winner announced!

01/03/2013

Here’s the winner for the Mobile Engage photo contest, along with two honourable mentions

Over the last two weeks, we've asked our members to help us celebrate the mobile majority by sending your best images taken on your mobile phones.

It’s a fact: these devices are our maps, our phones, and yes, our cameras. With apps that create great effects, most people can take pictures that were only the preserve of professional photographers just a decade ago.

Kristin Brewe, the IAB’s Director of Marketing & Communications, commented, “The images submitted by our members were of such high quality; it was definitely hard for everyone to pick a winner. It will be great to see all that creativity come together at Mobile Engage, when all the photos are combined into an amazing, artistic mural.”

A few themes in terms of photographic subjects emerged across submissions - pets, babies and booze seem to stimulate mobile phone photography, as do strange sightings and travel. The winner and our runners up reflect these themes very well.

After whittling the submissions down to the final three, the winner of the ticket to our Mobile Engage conference is Laura Tannenbaum for her image of a Spiderman toy found on Brick Lane. Congratulations Laura!

“The winning shot illustrates why we all love our phones - for capturing the wonderfully absurd, the pop culture we love - all while we’re walking around. To steal a few things from the old Spidey tune, our phones spin a web, any size, and capturing action, our day to day lives, is its reward. Now that’s the mobile majority.” stated Kristin.

Don't forget, today is also the last day to book Mobile Engage tickets with our special early bird 10% discount. Book here.
