Today sees the announcement of creative community EyeEm’s top 100 images from its annual photography competition, which received over 590,000 submissions from more than 88,000 photographers in over 150 countries – and all in just under six weeks. This officially makes it the world’s largest photography competition.
This year’s EyeEm Awards jury, including representatives from National Geographic, VII Photo Agency, Refinery29, BBC and more, has selected the top 20 images from each of five categories to be exhibited at the 2017 EyeEm Photography Festival & Awards in Berlin (15-17 September), where the category winners and Photographer of the Year will be announced.
The EyeEm Awards were open for submissions from 3 May to 15 June, and was free and open to photographers of all skill levels and backgrounds to submit through the EyeEm web platform and app.
The Photographer of the Year will receive a trip to Berlin for the Festival, mentorship throughout the year by senior photo editors, and all winners will get featured, exhibited and published on a global scale.
The fourth annual EyeEm Photography Festival & Awards is presented in partnership with Canon, and will be held between the 15 and 17 September at Radialsystem V in Berlin, Germany. For tickets and more information, visit eyeem.com/festival.
