San Francisco, CA—PicsArt, makers of creativity tools for mobile photography, and olloclip are hosting a worldwide mobile photography walk. Walks will be held on May 1, 2016 starting in Tokyo, Japan, and ending in San Francisco, California.
Equipped with olloclip’s macro, ultrawide as well as fisheye lenses on their iPhones or Samsung Galaxy S, groups of mobile photographers will walk each city to capture images.
They will then edit and share them using the PicsArt photo-editing and collage maker app. The first 24 people to register in-person at each walk will get a free iPhone-compatible olloclip lens and matching ollo case (valued at $100).
“At olloclip, we built a brand and culture around the idea of respecting mobility while inspiring creative expression. But to do this correctly, you must value the creative process from start to finish. Which is why we are excited to announce a partnership with PicsArt—the editing app that boasts 250+ million installs and a global community made up of more than 65 million monthly active users,” said Patrick O’Neill, founder of olloclip.
“Together, we will take the global mobile photography community by storm by hosting the first worldwide mobile photo walk and contests.”
“Taking and editing photos is always more fun when you can do it with other people,” added PicsArt founder and CEO Hovhannes Avoyan. “And that’s why PicsArt has all the photo-editing tools you could ever wish for. But it also a passionate and growing community of mobile creatives who you can collaborate, share and learn with. olloclip only adds to the ability for everyone to be creative.”
On May 1, each walk will begin at 2:00 p.m. local time in Tokyo, Shanghai, Berlin, Mexico City, Los Angeles and San Francisco. For detailed meeting locations, visit picsart.com/blog.
