ProCamera and iPhoneArt.com launch photo competition

ProCamera has partnered with iPhoneArt.com to launch a unique iPhotography competition. For the first time, artists and app developers will be coming together on a dedicated social art network to challenge each other, stretch the boundaries of this emerging technology, and find out what is possible.


Santa Monica, CA and Mannheim, Germany -- (ReleaseWire) -- 04/18/2011 -- ProCamera, the award-winning iPhone camera app, and iPhoneArt.com, the fastest growing iPhotography community, today announce jointly launching “ProCamera Contest: UNCHARTED”. ProCamera offers a 33% of price drop to $1.99 during the contest period.

“ProCamera Contest: UNCHARTED” is open to everyone. The prizes include iPad 2, iTunes gift cards, museum quality mounts, iBal mobile color balance filters, and entries in art exhibition. The submission period is open from April 18th to May 7th, 2011. For more details, please go to ProCamera Contest: UNCHARTED at http://www.iphoneart.com/contests/pro_camera/uncharted.

The purpose of the contest is to provide a platform for artists and developers to meet — to see how far they can push the emerging field of iPhotography — to encourage everyone to move onto uncharted ground — to learn from one another — to discover new techniques — and present a unique vision to the world.

“The partnership between ProCamera and iPhoneArt is the beginning of a new kind of online community. One where artist and developers can come together on equal footing, and help each other begin to understand the potential of this new medium. We admire the arts and treasure feedback from the artists.” Said Jens Daemgen, CEO of Daemgen.net and ProCamera’s creator.

“Paul Strand once said, “The artist’s world is limitless. It can be found anywhere, far from where he lives or a few feet away. It is always on his doorstep.” Never has this been more true than it is today. So let’s find out what’s possible!” said Daria Polichetti, iPhoneArt’s co-founder.
