Nokia today named October 20th as the ‘International Mobile Photography Day’. It is estimated that camera mobile phone users will take nearly one trillion photos in 2014 which clearly shows the scale of mobile photography. In recognition of this evolving mobile photography revolution, Nokia calls on photographers everywhere to join them in celebrating on October 20 as they mark the first International Mobile Photography Day.
In recognition of the evolving digital photography revolution, Nokia calls on photographers everywhere to grab their smartphones and celebrate with us on October 20 as we mark the first International Mobile Photography Day, a day dedicated to capturing all those once-in-a-lifetime, unexpected moments. Moments immediately immortalized and shared because now, people have the convenience of having a camera on hand, always, thanks to mobile phones. To mark the occasion, we secured some people whose very livelihood depends on almost instinctively capturing unexpected moments on film: staff photographers from the Associated Press.
Nokia even gave some AP photojournalists around the globe with their Nokia Lumia 1020 Windows Phone device and asked them to contribute to their “mobile photo documentary,” a series of photos from people all around the world depicting the most brilliant examples of life’s unexpected moments.
If you would like to join in the celebration and contribute your own “Life Unexpected” photo, share a memorable photo taken with the Lumia 1020 – or any smartphone – this Sunday (October 20), and then simply tweet or post your photo using #1020MobilePhotoDay. Your tagged image will then be considered for inclusion in the “Life Unexpected” video, along with some of the most renowned photographers in the world. (The video will be released on Monday, October 21.)
