Just two short weeks ago, EyeEm brought its biggest annual event across the Atlantic, direct from Berlin to New York. That’s right – the EyeEm Festival 2015! And what a fest it was. With 600 in attendance, the day brought photographers, innovators, and creatives across all disciplines under one roof. Together, we celebrated emerging photographers and explored what the future of photography may hold for us.

Highlights from the day included our unveiling of EyeVision, the launch of a very special Mission with VII Photo, and announcing the winners of the 2015 EyeEm Awards, including EyeEm Photographer of the Year, Porter Yates!

A few amazing figures from the day: 200,00 EyeEm Awards photo submissions from 18,000 photographers, 600 attendees, photographers who traveled to be there from D.C., San Francisco, the Netherlands, Germany, Spain, Brazil and India, and a lineup of speakers from today’s leaders in photo and tech, including NASA, Google, the Guggenheim Museum, VICE, National Geographic and more.

What an incredible day! Thank you to everyone who attended, and if you couldn’t make it in person, see it all in the EyeEmFestival15 album.
