The EyeEm mission with Lufthansa Japan just wrapped up, and boy, do we have some great photos to share! Almost 700 people added over 3500 photos to the Around the world by Lufthansa album. The best shots were exhibited in Tokyo last weekend and the grand prize winner receives 1 round trip flight for 2 people to visit the EyeEm Team in Berlin!

It certainly wasn’t an easy task for the jury of Lufthansa Japan to pick the winner, but after going through all 3500 photos and seeing the most amazing places in the world, the jury agreed that the winning photo is:

Congratulations @hskk1209!

You’re the winner of 1 round trip flight for 2 people with Lufthansa from Japan to Berlin and back. You’ll spend a day with the EyeEm Team, go on a photo walk and explore the hidden secrets of Berlin. We’ll get in touch with you for all details.

The Lufthansa Japan jury says:

“We’ve seen many outstanding photos in this mission, but this one from Kohta aka @hskk1209 really resonated with us. It’s taken in the deep north of Finland at Santa Claus village in Rovaniemi, showing a Lappilainen (a native of Lapland) with his reindeer.

Even though the photo only shows their backs, it captures a special moment. Kohta truly travelled all over the planet to take this shot – which is exactly what this mission was about.”

More information on Kohta’s trip to Berlin will follow soon. We’ll make sure to share our adventures with you!

The Around the World by Lufthansa exhibition in Tokyo

On March 1, 2014, the EyeEm exhibition at Tokyo’s famed nightclub UNIT went down. A selection of 400 shots taken from the Around the world by Lufthansa album was projected onto the wall while some of Berlin’s and Tokyo’s finest DJs spun the decks. The exhibition was part of AFTER25, a conference that brought together the creative scenes of Tokyo and Berlin.

Here’s the slideshow with the winning shots. Can you spot yours?

And here’s how it looked like at UNIT in Daikanyama at around 2AM:

Congrats to everyone who was part of it! You can find a list of all exhibited photographers here.

A big thank you goes out to Lufthansa Japan and everyone who contributed to this mission. It’s once again amazing to see the creative output of this global community. Make sure to check out all contributions in the Around the world by Lufthansa album.

See you at the next mission!
