I know, this post is long long overdue, but to be honest, I still find myself reminiscing back a month ago to this years iPhoneography exhibitions and thinking how I could (eventually) write this post and showcase some of the highlights.
Simply, I can’t. This years exhibitions far exceeded anyones expectations. The Joburg event kicked off on the 1st October at the iStore in Sandton Drive. The layout and format changed this year with the exhibition still being hosted in the upstairs gallery area, while the basement was converted in an amazing underground stage area, where Michael Lowman strutted some tunes and the awards ceremony took place. We also had some of the Mother Trucker food trucks pull in for some really good food! We had over 1200 people through the doors on the evening, a HUGE response!
The actual images in the exhibition were fantastic, and we exhibited around 200 images, including the new “really interesting” selfie category. The overall winner for the Joburg exhibition was Lindsay-Anne Hughues, with her image called “Found”.
A few days later we hit Cape Town. Well to say this was by far our best exhibition yet, in the 4 years we have been doing this, would be an understatement. Cape Town came out and supported in a big way. We also had around 200 images on display at the really cool Woodstock exchange, and the very talented Beatenberg entertaining us. We had around 1700 people joining us on the night!! Unbelievable !
So all in all, the 2014 iPhoneography Exhibitions were a HUGE success. The iStore team went full out this year, and I have to thank them for the massive success of the events. I can’t believe that almost 5 years ago, I went with a small little idea, and it’s grown into this.
Keep your eyes peeled for 2015 iPhoneography news, and some exciting new developments :)
