Cell Phone Category Added to Photo Contest

Cell phone photographs are now an individual category for the annual John E. Gruber Creative Photography Award Program sponsored by the Center for Railroad Photography & Art.

“The cellphone camera is often treated as a curiosity and a casual device by serious photographers, but … the quality of recent mobile device cameras is quickly closing the gap (with) most digital SLR cameras,” CRPA said in a statement.

The statement also said the group wanted to open its competition to photographers who don’t own a single-lens reflex camera.

The awards program is named for CRPA founder photographer John Gruber. The entry deadline is Oct. 31, 2016.
