WE HAVE A WINNER!

Our congratulations and a Sony Ericsson K700i handset go to mikey for this fabulous photo. Well done mikey, and well done everyone else who took part, some excellent photos from you all.

The theme of this moblog competition is "fourteen days", take your own meaning from that, and send something strong and vital in from your future phone, something to stand alongside images taken by celebrities like Irvine Welsh and Helena Christensen, who are also taking part. moblogUK is happy to be working in association with href="http://www.theartofimaging.com" target="_blank">the art of imaging site in bringing you this competition.

The best entries win tickets to the opening night on the 16th of September at Camdens' Proud Gallery, and a Sony Ericsson K700i. Send us your best entry! And tell your mates, anyone can join in.

Remember to put your name in the title/subject field so we know who you are if you aren't already a member of moblog.co.uk - Above all, enjoy!

Okay: 14 different views of the same day, courtesy of the newspaper stand in
Marks & Sparks and a little cut 'n' paste.

The resolution of each cover depends on how good I think their "journalism"
is, achieved by taking each shot from a different distance - hence the
Independent and the Gruniad look best, with the tabloids an indistinct blur.
(Cue a debate on politics and media which I'd rather not deal with?
Hopefully not.)

Granted, it only really works if we include the copy of NOW magazine, since
the sixteen-bayed paper stand had several duplicate copies. I was
planning to buy them all and arrange them a little neater, but capturing
them in situ seemed a little more moblog-y, and it would have cost me
seven-ish quid.

This is as pretentious as I get - no more "projects", promise. And sorry
about the size.

yeah! that's cool. not sure whether it counts, as it's been photoshopped, but it's still cool.

Carry on posting 'projects' if you wish, I for one am greatly enjoying them.

Yeah, I meant to ask about elligibility - and that is a can of worms I'd be willing to open.

Is this art form of phonecam'ing/moblog'ing only applicable to "pure" images straight from the phone? Proper origami only allows folding, no cutting or tearing, yet more complex creations can be made when the medium is given greater reign.

I'm not saying that this sort of post-processing is "real" moblog'ing, but I do think it's a derivation of the same sort of stuff. I'd guess that Joe cropped this entry" to focus on the part he wanted - is that valid?

"Real" photography is often a case of selection, grading and adjustment - couldn't the same apply to phonecam work? I'd certainly be willing to see an expansion of this new art form into different means of displaying, using and merging bits of phonecam work. And since the K700i itself has built-in panoramaifying technology, would that count as "proper" phonecam stuff? Might it eventually get to the point where the sort of cut 'n' paste in this piece was possible directly from a phone? Would that m ake it right?

I think this sort of debate is healthy, especially since we live in a fast-moving technology environment. (Was this competition open to video and audio entries, for example.)

Same here. I'm not sure how I feel about their elligibility, but the projects have been most entertaining so far.

Nice work!
