Unsplash Awards 2017, Selections
Last month, we kicked off the first Unsplash Awards to celebrate the people in the Unsplash community who openly give their photography, inspiring us all.
We created 13 categories and selected a photo for each. In less than a month, over 50,000 photos were submitted. We were blown away. There were so many awe-inspiring photos it was nearly impossible to select just one photo for each category.
To help narrow down the final selections, we invited 13 judges. Today, we celebrate the photos and photographers representing the 1st Unsplash Awards.
Congratulations to all the selected photographers and to everyone who made time to submit a photo. It was an honor seeing every shot submitted. We were glued to our screens for hours, teleported into another world where only great artistry can take you.
A special thank you to our Judges and Sponsors for helping make selections and for spreading the love. And to our community. We are honored to be building every day for you.
