Adriano Rodrigues, Photographer
Carbon in Make Up Arts for Adriano Rodrigues: "I found that I fell in love with Neon UV photography and I was finally able to express myself artistically. The fascinating thing working with UV light is that it's dark in the room and you have absolutely no idea what the project will look like”.
Alex Noble, Artist
Alex Noble in 'The Three of Us', a personal exploration into spirituality, identity, cultural and experiential effects of society on my gender representation. Gold in Portraiture in last year's Fresh Future Awards.
Jody Mattioli, Photographer

Sometimes you get the opportunity to jump off C4D and bring a design to reality. ark Richardson experiments with laser cut numerals and wins the Carbon in Graphic during last year’s Fresh Future Awards.
Andres Marti, Photographer
You can see hints of Baroque and Romanticism in the photographic series by Andres Marti which won the Bronze in the Styling & Jewellery in last year’s Fresh Future Awards. Titled 'Otredad' (Otherness), the work relates to days that one is understood as a whole and other days that that whole is fragmented.
Christian Schultz, Director
Gold in Documentary for Christian Schultz and his "Project Alive: Finn" film. A sweet, moving film about Finn, a young boy struggling with a rare terminal disease who’s parents are searching for a cure.
Paul Macphail, Photographer
Paul Macphail creates 'Back from the Edge' a unique study in creativity and perspective. The fact that it’s shot entirely on a smartphone didn’t deter him from winning last year’s Silver in Sculpture.
Jonathan Swecker, Photographer
"These shots keep me going in my career and will hopefully inspire others to try to think outside the box." Jonathan on his 'World of Pixels' work which got him the Silver Retouching & Post.
Steven Grindler, Photographer

"Empty pool is the human experience with the emptiness, like the birds, we swim in the air and we move around in a vacuum trying to fill it." Bronze in Reportage for Domenica Melillo.
Edgar Tescum, Photographer
Mexicano means Mexican. Mexican is an identity. An identity that is so huge that everybody can understand. Photographer and Creative Director Edgar explores the meaning of identity through fashion. Silver in Styling and Jewellery during Fresh 18 Awards.
Alberto Cittone, Graphic Designer
It’s more than retouching: Image manipulation is seen by Alberto Cittone as enrichment and growth; a new creative purpose. For his work 'Inhale – Exhale – Inspire – Create' he won the Silver in the Retouching & Post category.
David Mrugala, Designer
