GoSeeAWARDS – this year that meant viewing more than 1000 projects in eight categories, winning over around 80 jurors for a good cause, eight first rounds with an average of 60 submissions, eight shortlists with 20 finalists and then, after all that, at least eight times Gold, Silver, and Bronze awards, Merits and, not to forget, the winners in the Public Voting category chosen by our GoSee READERS. That entailed over the course of the past year uncountable emails, phone calls, interviews on GoSee, programming and re-programming websites for the voting cycles, creating and changing ad banners, ... and, of course, organizing displays for the UPDATE16BERLIN exhibition. Which included downloads, print approval, finding out if winners would be attending, getting one or two of them in front of the camera...
So just like every year, it was a whole lot of work. And like every year too, we look at the results and come to the conclusion: It was all worth it! It's this way to our winners in the categories: REPORTAGE - ART - SCREENINGS - ILLUSTRATION - STILLS - FASHION - NUDE - PORTRAIT. Here is a list of all winners, and here, they are listed according to categories.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank PAGE very much – who are now introducing all winners – and also thank LÜRZER'S ARCHIVE very much for its active support. By the way, there are certainly one or two other ways to dock onto our awards. GoSee is all about cooperation. GoSeeAWARDS.com

GOLD winner in the category SCREENINGS is Elina Kechicheva. The fashion photographer with Bulgarian roots residing in Paris convinced the jurors with the unusual way she stages fashion.
Elina, who is represented by GoSee member SHOTVIEW, participated in the renowned fashion festival in southern France's Hyeres at the beginning of her career, and soon afterward, Parisian Art Director and publisher Patrick Remy brought out the book 'Paradise' with works by her. Amy Winehouse, Diane Kruger and Pharrell Williams have already stood in front of her camera, just like Lara Stone, Candice Swanepoel, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, or Carmen Kass. Her editorials are published in magazines such as Harper's Bazaar, Vogue, Marie Claire, L'Officiel, El Pais, Russh, and Sleek. In 2014, her first short film appeared for which she was in charge of both writing the script and directing. 3 Soeurs (Three Sisters) was presented at Nowness and as part of the Berlin Fashion Film Festival.
We present you the excellent spread by Elina here on GoSee – find out more about the mysterious photographer directly from GoSee member SHOTVIEW.
