ONLY Mag (ONLY Mobile Art) is the mobile photography magazine available in digital and print versions. Do you remember when we interviewed Marcello Barbusci on September, 2016? Picwant announced its partnership with LOOSE Mag, which has recently turned the name in ONLY Mag. In October, we renewed the partnership and started with a new project: Picwant Mobile Stories.
We are now looking for new and original Stories taken with smartphone. We’d like to receive creative and captivating set of images (not single shots) that tell about events, traditions, lifestyle, daily life in your country, artisans’ works, atypical or particular places of your city, specific and notable topics developed in all their aspects, etc.
You have just to go on Instagram account, tag #picwantmobilestories all the images of your Story, add a short description, and let the community see your storytelling skills!
Every Tuesday, our photo editors will select one shot only from the Mobile Story you’ve shared during the previous week, for a total of six photographers whose photos will be picked and reposted. The weekly winners enter in a short list getting the opportunity to be published on ONLY Mag, next issue on March.
March edition was won by Shaghayegh Moradian Nejad, and her Story “Afghanistan without war“.
January edition was won by Lucille Kanzawa, from Brazil, and her Story “Celebrating Gebre Menfes Kidus”. Here is an abstract:
Saturday morning, 05h30am, and almost no living souls on the streets besides me and some other people walking in white clothes. The feeling is that as if I were in a ghost town. I’m in the holy city of Lalibela, north of Ethiopia.” (Lucille Kanzawa)
