Festival Samsung mObgraphia Recap and Call for Entry for Olhar de Torcedor
In June, the first national event in Brazil, held by mObgraphia and Samsung took place at the Image and Sound Museum in São Paulo.
The Samsung mObgraphia Festival presented two exhibitions, workshops, panels and talks about the fastest growing visual art of the world, as we call it mobgraphia or mobgrafia in Portuguese and Spanish.
A national award was started prior to the festival with more than 12.0000 images posted in Instagram under #samsungmobgraphia.
