In 2019 an Italian won the competition

There is also Italian Stefano Federici, winner of the 2019 edition with a series of black and white shots dedicated to his wife Ana. Here’s how Federici commented on the initiative:

“Winning the NEXT IMAGE Awards was the beginning of an emotional and working journey. This recognition gave me the inspiration and the courage to start a new professional life as a photographer. The most rewarding opportunity was that of having had the honor of attending the award ceremony in an important location such as the Paris Photo in the Grand Palais in Paris with my photo exhibited together with those of other internationally renowned photographers. An experience I will never forget. Subsequently, I also created a photographic project for Huawei where I tried to highlight the features of the smartphone that I had received as a prize. “

Stefano Federici’s advice to competitors

For those who wish to participate, I recommend being creative, but above all original. ”- continues Stefano Federici. “In the composition, in the frame, in the colors, in the black and white, show your point of view, adapting your personal style. Furthermore, Huawei smartphones offer the possibility of shooting in manual mode, like real cameras, avoiding automatisms and, by independently setting the various parameters on the exposure, you can create something truly remarkable and professional. Finally, tell a story that is effective and with a strong emotional impact “.

10 categories and a contest all for Italian users

The 2021 edition includes a subdivision into categories that does not include an absolute winner. The choice thus allows you to appreciate all the nuances of the different photographic styles and the different points of view. Here are the ten categories in the race:
