Tamron “My Travel Exhibit” Photo Contest
Unlike traditional static online galleries, Tamron's SoHo-styled MyPhotoExhibits (MPE) interface, available at http://myphotoexhibits.com, allows users to create customizable gallery exhibits with a vibrant interactive experience. Photographers simply set up a user avatar and bio, upload theirfavorite high-resolution images and create their personalized on-line exhibit space. After organizing the exhibit and captioning the photographs, users can put finishing design touches on their exhibit. By choosing wall and floor textures and colors, frames, furniture, and lighting, photographers are invited to extend their creativity and show their work in complimentary settings. It’s easy to go back into the MPE interface at any time to add more photos, tweak presentation specs, or create an unlimited number of new exhibits that feature travel pictorials, special events, projects, and more.
Spreading the word about these custom exhibits is another way in which MyPhotoExhibits stands out from other online galleries. Once an exhibit is ready to “open” it’s easy to share it with friends. Users simply send invitations from the website or the iPhone & iPad app to Facebook or other social media platforms or by email. Visitors can sign the photographer's guestbook, choose favorite exhibits and follow exhibiting photographers.
Companion iPhone & iPad App for On-The-Go Viewing and Sharing
An app for iPhone & iPad for photography enthusiasts on-the-go will further enhance MyPhotoExhibits convenience and user-friendliness. The complimentary app, available in the iTunes app store at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/tamron-mpe/id420404201?mt=8 offers easy mobile access to MyPhotoExhibits. Through their iPhone or iPad, users can browse through all available MPE exhibits, view their own exhibits, check out other photographers and share exhibits by sending out invites to friends.
