The Hipstography Awards 2014 – The Ceremony

By on February 8, 2015

Welcome to the Hipstography Awards 2014

Hipstamatic saw the light of day in 2009 and has since revolutionized the world of digital photography; in essence, it remains one of the most creative and innovative applications around. The catalogue continues to expand, allowing everyone to mix and match to suit his/her creative urges. The results continue to be incredibly diversified and gorgeous to boot.

Although the ceremony implies that there are winners and losers, the main goal is to celebrate the astonishing diversity that is Hipstamatic.

The awards are also an opportunity to revisit a few of the most beautiful series of pictures published on Hipstography over the past year. I’d also like to use this opportunity to thank everyone who has allowed me to publish his/her photos on the site. Hipstography wouldn’t even exist without you! So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for all these splendid and inspirational pictures.

So many of you voted for your favorites and your votes were added to the jury’s. In certain categories, a few of the nominees were quick to stand out; in others, it was a very tight competition. Anyhow, 30 awards will be handed out today: 4 for the combos, 5 for the portfolios and 21 photos of the day. Following last year’s success, we will also be handing out "Special Awards" to close the celebrations in style.
