A Recap of The 2014 EyeEm Festival & Awards in Berlin – Day 2

By Severin - 5 min read

A 2-day festival for those revolutionizing photography, technology and media

On September 12 and 13, The 2014 EyeEm Festival and Awards took place in Berlin. With community members joining from all over the world, we spent two incredible days celebrating photography and discussing its future with some of the world’s leading and most inspiring photographers, journalists, editors, curators, scientists, artists and creatives.

Click here to see what happened on Day 1 of the Festival.

Day 2 was all about getting up close and personal. Participants engaged in hands-on workshops about photography techniques, portrait photography and post processing, joined heated discussions on photography and ethics in the digital age, learned from masters in storytelling and photojournalism, and dove deep into what’s coming up next at EyeEm.
