we’re so excited to introduce you to the newest members of our EyeEm Ambassador family today! We’re now at 87 ambassadors (and counting) who are proudly representing their local communities in 60 cities and 32 countries.
What are EyeEm Ambassadors up to?
Inaugurated in December 2012, the EyeEm Ambassador network is a group of highly active community members. Our vision is to grow EyeEm in our local communities, host meetups, photo walks, workshops & exhibitions and build a culture around our common passion, photography. Here’s what our ambassadors are currently up to:
Meetups around the world
This weekend we have Liverpool, Honolulu, Raleigh and Boston coming up, then we have Auckland, Fukuoka, Surabaya and more. EyeEm Meetups are the perfect way to get to know each other in real life and take photos together.
Translating EyeEm into 25 languages
With the help of our ambassadors we were able to translate EyeEm into German, Spanish, Portuguese and Japanese. Since EyeEm has been available in Japanese (thanks to Yuki!), we’re currently featured in the most popular apps section in the Japanese App Store.
Many more languages will follow in the upcoming months!
EyeEm at Format Festival UK
Initiated by EyeEm Melbourne Ambassador Misho Baranovic, EyeEm will play a major part in this years Format Festival UK, one of the world’s leading festivals for contemporary photography. We won’t reveal much at the moment, but it’s going to be big and YOU and your photos will be part of it.
Since Misho’s already on his way to Europe, he is kindly dropping by Berlin to host our 3rd EyeEm Masterclass this Saturday. With the aim to learn from each other and take photos together, we’re looking forward to many more masterclasses in Berlin and worldwide.
The world’s biggest event for Apple fans had a special pre-conference dedicated to mobile photography. EyeEm Ambassadors Star Rush, Jen Pollack Bianco, Misho Baranovic, Dutch Doscher and Dan Berman were on site, hosted workshops and visited the Haus of Hipstamatic.

The AMPt community is amongst the most active and talented on EyeEm. Ambassador Frank Mathews, one of its founders, and Michelle Robinson introduced their weekly challenges to EyeEm which receive hundreds of submissions every week.
Frank will also host the EyeEm Raleigh Meetup this weekend.
