The first camera phone photo was taken on June 11th, 1997. In honor of that date, 1197 is a one-day conference dedicated to mobile & iPhone photography.
On Saturday, October 22nd, 2011, 351 people attended the world’s first conference about iPhone and mobile photography. 290 came to the Mission Bay conference center in SF, and 61 attended remotely. The New York Times wrote about it, and MacWorld and the San Jose Mercury News did too. Laughing Squid gave a preview, and several attendees wrote about their experiences in detail. There were over 2,000 submissions to the various contests where attendees won prizes from a live Instagram display. You can see every one of the talk videos from` the day or follow @1197is to get updates about the next one.

We’d like to thank everyone who attended, especially our contest judges, blogger and vegan dha advocate Sarah Marshall, and our lights and sounds guy “Even Steven”. (Plus his pregnant wife who was there too.)
