The collection of winners encompass everything that matters about photography. With each category showcasing diverse visual style, techniques, creative perspectives, the final list of 10 category winners is nothing short of outstanding.

Warsaw-based photographer Kate Phellini was selected for The EyeEm Photographer of the Year.

Kate will serve as an ambassador to EyeEm for the following year, and we can’t wait to showcase more of her stunning work.
