Meet the Judges

Born in Quebec, Canada, MissPixels has flourished in the Visual Arts community for over 20 years. Being an illustrator for iStockPhoto and Getty Images, plus a graphic designer and freelance art director, she turned to the iPhone in 2009 as her main medium for artistic expression.

In 2010, Wired Magazine named two of her pieces “Best SmartPhone Photos”. Meanwhile, the MoMA tweeted about her famous piece “4th of July” to its followers. Two years later, she became the first iPhoneography artist worldwide to give a TEDx talk.

Max Berkowitz
Max is an iPhoneographer based in Sacramento, CA. His work often explores the ways in which people and their environments work together to create something greater than simply a portrait, or an image. When we see a group of swimmers we feel the water, the energy and the emotion of the athlete.

Max’s work as been featured in the following exhibits and websites: P1XELS Apple1 San Francisco, EYE’EM NYC, The MMS Gallery in Philadelphia and the OCCCA-P1XELS show in Orange County, plus iPhoneography art sites iPhoneogenic, P1XELS, Life In Lofi, fotogriPHONE Italy, EYE’EM, and BiCKR.

Nicki Fitz-Gerald
Nicki (aka FlickrFitzy) began her career as an illustrator in London in the 1990s and is now a full-time Graphic Designer in the UK. Since getting her an iPhone 3 in 2010, Nicki has become a “hopelessly addicted iPhoneographer”. Her work was exhibited at the first eyephoneography exhibition in Madrid in 2010 and one of her images was the only iPhone photo shortlisted for the Areas of Outstanding Urban Beauty UK photo competition. More of Nicki’s work has been featured in FORMAT, a UK photography festival exploring Street photography. Her image “Flamin’ Amy” won 4th place in Life in Lofi’s Faved of the Year 2011, among other features.

In April 2011, after finding no central resource for learning the art of iPhoneography online, Nicki created iPhoneographyCentral. She now shares her time between her day job, family and the website.
