The final results of the Cherrydeck Creators Award are out! Get to know the four winning photographers chosen by the audience.

Last week we’ve shared with you the 15 finalists running up for the Cherrydeck Creators Award and asked you to vote for your favourite works.

It was impressive to see how thousands of you voted for your preferred pictures and supported amazing artists during the past few days. Today we are glad to announce that the voting is finally closed and the winners are chosen!

After going through all the results, four names stood out. We would like to congratulate the four winning artists: Sílvia, Joel, Gustavo, and Gabriella! Congrats!

Although only the four selected profiles will be awarded the final prizes, we want to thank everyone who participated and assure you it was truly astounding to see so many great submissions.

To everyone who voted, we really appreciate your support in helping us choose among such an outstanding pool of talent!

The four winning works (ranked by number of votes):

1st place: Sílvia Rocchino

This image is part of a series that I completed just before this period of isolation. Just before I found myself alone (like many other people at the moment) experiencing the primary need to connect with the others, I decided to realize a project that showed the importance of physical contact. By developing and using wearables made of light and eco-sustainable material I created a visual connection, a human tissue.

2nd place: Joel Rodriguez

This picture represents sisterhood. Love. Closeness. Humanity. Vulnerability. There’s something about nakedness that makes us so vulnerable, yet creates a sense of togetherness, nothing can be compared to that.

3rd place: Gustavo Arzich da Gama

I went searching for some of my old Facebook covers and other archives for these photos. When I shot them, it always gave me a sense of community, companionship, feeling and peace. We were happy and we didn’t know it!

4th place: Gabriella Achadinha

ON SUNDAYS WE PRAY: Drive past the N1 / Paarden Eiland highway intersection in Cape Town on an early Sunday morning and you will probably witness the same magical scene — that of a congregation all dressed in white, praying and praising in a circle. Their praises echoing over the empty fields, an area almost swamp-like, a preserved touch of nature just before the chaos of the city and industria. One does not need to be religious to be moved by the scene, a palpable sense of togetherness and unity.

To recap the competition, have a look at our blog post or at the 15 shortlisted profiles, here. To see other competitions we have going on, keep an eye on our blog. 🍒
