Cameraphone celebrated

From the Heathrow security alerts to the WAG’s partying during the World Cup, 2006 has highlighted how cameraphones are playing an increasingly prominent role in photography and photo-journalism.
That is being celebrated in an exhibition at London’s Air Gallery that marks the end of a campaign, commissioned by Sony Ericsson in partnership with The Times, which encouraged photographers of all abilities to use their mobile phones to capture images in a bid to win the title of ‘Cameraphone Photographer of the Year – 2006’.

The exhibition will also feature a series of behind-the-scenes shots taken by high profile pundits at major sporting events throughout 2006 including a unique image of Jenson Button winning his first Formula 1 Grand Prix and the England cricket team’s dressing room during the Pakistan Series.

The Newsflash exhibition will go on to form part of an international global imaging campaign World View with Sony Ericsson, where the UK’s finest example will go head-to-head with winning photographs from 15 countries worldwide including the Netherlands, China and Australia to compete for the coveted title of International Cameraphone Photographer of the Year – a selection of which will be on display at the Newsflash gallery event.
