On December 2, 2011, Make Me Social sponsored Florida By Phone, an innovative crowdsourced art exhibit that gave people the opportunity to share their experiences, as captured by their mobile phones. Hosted by the St. Augustine Art Association (STAAA) during First Friday Art Walk’s “Fantastic Florida,” all photos were displayed on the very phones that they were captured with!
Visitors to the exhibit voted for their favorite photos, and each vote counted as an entry into a raffle for an iPhone 4S. The photographer whose image received the most votes won Best in Show, and an iPhone 4S. Can you spot the winners in the photos above? Their smiles make it easy!
We had a great time at the event and were able to raise money for a wonderful local association, staffed and supported by wonderful people. Thank you to our volunteers, exhibitors, and attendees!
