Creative community EyeEm has announced the 100 finalists for its annual photography competition, which this year received over 700,000 submissions from more than 100,000 photographers in over 150 countries - making it the world’s largest photography competition.
This year's EyeEm Awards jury, including representatives from Adidas, VII Photo Agency, WeTransfer, Squarespace and more, have selected the top 10 images from each of nine categories and 10 shortlisted photographers for Photographer of the Year, to be exhibited at the inaugural Berlin Photo Week 10-14 October in Berlin, where the winners will be announced.
The EyeEm Awards were open for submissions throughout June and July and were 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 photo week, a Sony Alpha camera, mentorship throughout the year by senior photo editors, and all winners will get featured, exhibited and published on a global scale.
The fifth annual EyeEm Awards is part of Berlin Photo Week. The awards ceremony will be held on 13 October in Berlin, Germany. For more information, visit berlinphotoweek.com. In the meantime, here we share some of our favourite finalist images.
