In connection to the Copenhagen Photo Festival 2013, a competition and exhibition will take place called
“HIPSTAGRAM FTW” with photos taken by photographers using Smart Phone APP filters. 

The categories are:

- Landscape
- Portrait
Everyday Poetry – in a series of at least 5 photos. 

The use of Smart Phone filters in combination with Social Media, have made the act of taking photos a new daily ritual and way of sharing life and situations with people in a Social Network. Since there is no question that this is part of the future of photography, it will be highlighted, investigated and discussed as a new aspect for the world of photography.

The competition will be judged by the Director of Copenhagen Photo Festival Rasmus Ranum, the Photographer and Photo Editor of the Danish Newspaper Politiken, Per Folkver, the Director of Fotografisk Center Kristine Kern and the Artist and Photographer Jacob Fuglsang Mikkelsen.

Send up to ten (10) images per photographer, either as individual photos or as part of a series.
The photos should be sent either one by one, or as a link to the email address:

Take the photos during this lovely month of May 2013, or use ones you taken before and send them in
no later than the 29th of May, 18:00 Copenhagen time.

Once the photos have been selected for the exhibition, they will be printed and shown as part of the official program of the Copenhagen Photo Festival 2013 and featured in Snap Magazine. The Final winner of the single best photo or a series of five photos, will win the latest iphone 5 with a one year free mobile phone account.

On June 13th 17:00 – 19:00 at Fotografisk Center, there will be a panel debate with Director of Fotografisk Center Kristine Kern as moderator. There will be three short presentations of photography relating to the premises of the competition and a small celebration for the winner and other photographers selected to be in the exhibition
