MojoFest for Content Creators
MojoFest is a growing international event which celebrates the ever-increasing global community of professional smartphone content creators.
We all have Smartphones (well, most of us) and these highly advanced tools and are being used more and more to produce professional content.
Creatives, media, and agencies are much more engaged with a mobile approach to content creation now than at any time in the past.
The tools are fast becoming recording and editing studios in our pockets!
The main focus of MojoFest is on Photography, Filmmaking, Visual Storytelling, Social Media content, and Audio production.
The festival is the longest running international smartphone creator event. Pioneers, innovators, and creatives who are pushing boundaries on creating visual stories with their smartphones attend this event.
This year MojoFest is over three days, with three core elements, over thirty speakers and around 40 delegates.
Attendees experience three full days of keynotes, plenary discussion, and workshops that include some of the leading app and accessory manufacturers that make professional mobile content creation possible.
