There are countless awards and prizes for photographs, the EyeEm Awards, however, are something special: Photos can be submitted from all around the world.
For four years the EyeEm Awards have taken place with the goal of discovering young and talented photographers and give them a chance to present their photos to a big audience. This year another 100 photos from more than 590,000 submissions from over 88,000 photographers were nominated. There are five different categories: The Architect, The Great Outdoors, The Photojournalist, The Portraitist and The Street Photographer.
Besides the awards the main program of the award also includes a festival. Its purpose is to debate about the future of photography and possibilities for creative potential and common growth.
“A Festival for those revolutionizing photography, technology & visual communication“
This year’s winners are selected from 15 to 17 September in Berlin as part of the EyeEm Festival & Award and tickets are still available.
To make you get a better impression I’ve decided to show you a selection of the nominated pictures in each category here – let yourselves get overwhelmed! In case I’ve made you interested in more, you can take a look at all 100 nominations here:
I think every photo is convincing and compelling! What do you think?
