Revolution Mosaic is a unique app in that it has a specific, and somewhat finite, purpose. At least for the time being. The app aims to crowdsource 360,000 photos from its users, and use them to create one mosaic image. The final image used to create the mosaic will also be chosen from the submissions.
Here's how the photo going to be chosen;
"Once 360,000 photos are submitted,one photo will be chosen to form the final mosaic image.Who will choose the photo? All of you, that’s who.The app will showcase the top 100 photos based on creativity, beauty, and its depiction of our mobile generation. The top 100 photos will then be showcased in the app for you and everyone to vote on."
The photo chosen will be used to create a 48″ by 72″ mural poster,which will be available for purchase through the app,the app website and in commercial art galleries around the world.
