Nokia Names October 20th International Mobile Photography Day
Camera phones have changed photography forever – and right along with it – our lives. In 2014, it is estimated that smartphone photographers will take nearly one trillion photos – that’s hundreds of thousands a minute (three thousand by the time you read this sentence), capturing in an instant the poignant, funny, dramatic, hilarious, strange and memorable moments that otherwise would have been lost forever.
In recognition of the evolving digital photography revolution, Nokia calls on photographers everywhere to grab their smartphones and celebrate with them on October 20th as they 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.
If you would like to join in the celebration and contribute your own “Life Unexpected” photo, share a memorable photo taken this Sunday (October 20th), 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 21st.)
So, go ahead, snap a photo on October 20th, the International Mobile Photography Day, and share your moment with the world.
