Announcement of the 2018 Ikei Photo CONTEST winners.
-

We could not be happier at IKEI Research & Consultancy, S.A. about the second edition of IKEI Photo Contest (International Social and Company photography contest). In addition to having 900 participants from all corners of the world, having virtually tripled the number of participants of the last edition, the number of photographs has also grown considerably as we have received over 2,600 this year.

We want to sincerely thank all the participants for the great interest they have shown and to congratulate them on the high quality of the photographs submitted. It is you who are making IKEI Photo Contest shine, and turning it, little by little, into a reference contest.

Prior to the announcement of the winners, it is necessary to specify that the IKEI PHOTO CONTEST 2018 list of winners has been modified, as some of the photographs that initially were prized did not comply with the legal bases of the photo contest. These legal bases establish that: “All photographs must be unpublished: they must not have been previously divulged, exhibited or awarded prizes in other contests. This is to say that the photographs must not have been shared publicly”. In that sense, the organizing committee has removed the photographs that:

- Have been previously distinguished in previous contests.
- Have been previously awarded in previous contests.
- Have been previously exhibited in previous photography exhibitions.

Thus, the list of winners of 2018 presented below (consisting of winners, mentions of honor without established order, and the Javier Larraya Award for participation) is considered final.

Congratulations to all! We will get in touch with each one of you soon.

Thanks for a second edition full of light! We look forward to meeting you all again for IKEI Photo Contest 2019!
