With joined forces of Saatchi Gallery and Huawei offers artists, photographers and enthusiasts around the globe a chance to show their most creative selfies internationally.

The interesting decade of smartphone photography has reached a tipping point says Gloria Zhang, CMO of Huawei Consumer Group: “Through a selfie the personalization projected on the world through our creativity. The selfie generation as each of us seeks to explore and share our inner creativity through the one artistic tool to which we have access: “the Smartphone”. “
