Japan: 1st Keitai Photo Awards

id:heimin posts pictures he's taken with his keitai [mobile phone] camera over the last year [ja], including: shots before and after he shaved his head, close-ups of cutting nostril hair, snapshots of meals he's eaten, cats and dogs, the Hanshin Tigers, manga and ice cream. The popularity of Keitai Shosetsu [short story] award-winner “Atashi no Kanojo” spurred the blogger to start the “Japan Keitai Photo Awards”, which he hopes to win himself. Prize money is 2 million yen, but be warned: the blogger hasn't paid his last month's rent yet and only has 10,000 yen in his pocket.
