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.

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.
