The EyeEm Festival & Awards had its debut in Berlin in September 2014. It started immediately as the world’s biggest annual photography award. Last year’s show was held in Brooklyn, New York. With an impressive lineup of today’s leaders in photography, arts, and technology including NASA, Google, the Guggenheim Museum, VICE, and National Geographic, the show of 2015 brought together photographers and creative visionaries with leading brands to explore the future of photography and its impact on the creative society.
