Following the success of the 2011 iPhoneographySA exhibition held in Johannesburg, iStore and friend of BandwidthBlog, MarcForrest.com have partnered again to host this years event. Due to the popularity of iPhoneography in South Africa and the interest from different regions, this years iPhoneographySA Exhibition will be held in both Johannesburg and Cape Town.
“Based on the exceptional response to the 2011 iPhoneographySA exhibition, we are looking forward to seeing the entries from Johannesburg and Cape Town this year. We encourage anyone with an iPhone to enter the exhibition, as the user-friendly iPhone camera and availability of thousands of photography apps, makes it easy for even the most amateur photographer to take great photographs.” says Andrew Mundell, iStore CEO.
iPhoneography has quickly become a popular trend amongst iPhone owners, as well as professional photographers who have recognised the intuitive photographic capabilities of the iPhone. It has an incredible camera, with great resolution and many easy to use features. In addition to the user-friendly camera, an iPhone travels with the owner everywhere, making it convenient to take photographs. Whether capturing the family pet or spontaneous moments while traveling, everything becomes a photo opportunity. Over and above portability and a great camera, there are countless photography apps available from the iTunes App Store to edit and share photographs.
iPhoneographySA 2012 kicks off with an exhibition in Johannesburg on the 11th October followed by Cape Town on the 23rd October. Each exhibition will display the photographic artwork selected by the judges, and be available for purchase at the artists discretion. Entries for iPhoneographySA 2012 opened on the 27th August and will remain open until the 26th September for Johannesburg and the 8th October for Cape Town. Each entrant may submit up to 5 photographs which can be edited using any iPhone photography app.
Great prizes are up for grabs for the winners chosen in Johannesburg and Cape Town. The winners in each province can look forward to a new iPad and second and third place winners will receive a variety of accessories from iStore to make future capturing even more inspiring.
“I am thrilled to be involved in iPhoneographySA again this year. The popularity of last years event and an increased interest in iPhoneography resulted in the exciting partnership with iStore for a second year. We look forward to judging the entries in both Johannesburg and Cape Town and hosting both exhibitions”, says Marc Forrest, founder of the iPhoneographySA exhibitions.
