The Mobile Photography Awards has announced its choice for Photographer/Artist of the Year as Sarah Jarrett. Jarrett is a UK-based artist and iPhoneographer who uses both an iPhone and iPad to create her painterly illustrations.
"We are absolutely thrilled to award such an original, talented and technically brilliant artist with our most prestigious prize," said Daniel Berman, founder of the annual awards. "Sarah’s work is truly remarkable in it’s own right and like all great artists, her chosen medium, an iPhone, is merely a tool she bends to serve her vision as an artist and photographer."
The MPA Grand Prize Jury includes Joanne Carter (publisher of mobile photography and art web resource The App Whisperer), Daria Polichetti (the co-founder of mobile photo and art community iPhoneart.com), Misho Baranovic (photographer and author of e-book iPhone Photography – How to Shoot, Edit and Share Great Photographs), Star Rush (the co-founder of Lys Photo Magazine and an instructor at the Cornish College of the Arts), Andy Royston (photographer, and a regular lecturer on mobile photography and art at the Museum of Discovery and Science in Ft. Lauderdale), Nettie Edwards (internationally recognized award-winning mobile photographer and artist) and Daniel Berman (filmmaker, fine art photographer and Founder of the Mobile Photo Awards.)
The winners of 20 MPA categories were previously announced, including the DPReview Connect category, which invited participants to share images that conveyed what the word "connect" means to them. Souichi Furusho of Japan won the category with his image titled "Image Pic #51."
