The Appleton Museum of Art, College of Central Florida, will present the fifth annual “Mobile Photography Contest & Exhibition,” with a call for entries from June 3-16.
The Appleton challenges you to be inspired by three themes-Landscapes, In the Museum and My Kid Took That-and submit your mobile photos for a contest and exhibition. All ages are welcome to participate and submit up to two photos in each category. Photos must be taken with a mobile phone and be representative of the categories. Photos will be printed and displayed in the Appleton with a special section for the top photo from each category. The photos will remain on view through Sept. 22.
Photos will be juried and prizes awarded during a reception on Tuesday, July 2, 5-7 p.m. Awards will be announced at 6 p.m.; winners will be notified in advance.
Categories and Instructions
The sky is the limit! Share your photos of natural scenery such as mountains, valleys, trees, rivers and forests.
In the Museum
Whether at the Appleton or another favorite cultural spot, send us museum selfies, gallery photos, or snapshots of friends and family enjoying the artwork.

Let your little (or not-so-little) ones take the lead in this category! Don’t forget to include the child’s name and age, along with your name, when submitting.
From June 3-16, email photos in jpeg format to AppletonMuseum@cf.edu; include the category in the subject line and your full name in the body of the email. Photos must be sent via email. Entries submitted by mail or through Facebook or other social media will not be accepted.
