  1. I like the fact that even snapshots taken with cameraphones are accepted. That means that even more people can participate and try their hand at photography. It's a great way to introduce neophytes to this particular art form. 🙂

  2. What an awesome event! Cell phone cameras are allowed…how cool is that? I hope you post some pictures from your own experience up here.

  3. Personally, I usually end up seeing something WORTH taking a picture of, when I don't have my camera with me. Now that camera phones are so good, it really does encourage more people to get into photography!

  4. Once i participate in a photography competition but i didnt find any prize, but i m looking forward to see the result of this contest and winning photo
