The GoPix Awards is opened to any photographer with access to a mobile phone or tablet with inbuilt camera. Any post-processing work can be done in-camera or on a computer. Collages and montages are also eligible, provided all elements in the final artwork have been captured with a mobile phone camera.
The GoPix Awards will run throughout 2013, in two semiannual rounds with closing deadline at the end of each 6-months period. Each round will be juried by the TZIPAC Editorial team and our specially invited Juror(s) whose scoring will determine the category winners, Finalists and GoPix Grand Nominees, among whom the ultimate GoPix Grand Winner will be selected and awarded the title of “2013 TZIPAC International Mobile GoPixer of the Year”.
In every semiannual round, the entry process is split into two stages.
Stage 1 entry fee is just $1 per image with the judging being carried out by the TZIPAC Editorial team. The very low entry fee is designed to encourage a broader community of Mobile Pixers (artists) to participate, in the hope of discovering a multitude of marvelous artworks from budding undiscovered artists as well as established professionals, without geographic boundaries or limitations. Achieving a status of Stage 1 Accepted will allow you to promote your artwork with our official E-badge.
All Stage 1 Accepted images will be invited for ongoing submission to Stage 2 at a cost of $5 per image, with the total fees capped at $75. Stage 2 will be judged by our specially invited Juror(s) whose scores will determine the Finalists, Category Winners and GoPix Grand Nominees who will vy for top honours in The GoPix Awards.
TZIPAC look forward to seeing and showcasing the diverse and numerous artworks that will be submitted and the passionate flares and creativity of participating Mobile GoPixers.
