İlter Yılmaz, the Awards Photos Turkey Ambassador, commented on the event: “We are proud to hold the world’s first NFT photography competition in the pearl of the world, Istanbul.

Yılmaz continued: “NFTs are an innovative technology used to increase the value of digital artworks in the art world and provide new sources of income for artists. It enables artists to market their works as digital art, allows limited production, and enables artists to control their rights over the work through smart contracts. The purpose of our event is to raise awareness for NFT photography, enabling more artists to enter the NFT world and protect their works.”

Artificial intelligence: threat or opportunity?

While the Awards Photos event offered participants an innovative experience, it also marked an important milestone in the digital transformation of the photography world. Discussions were held about the future of artificial intelligence-supported photography and its reflection on the art world. The debate centered around whether artificial intelligence poses a threat or an opportunity and predictions were shared about the future of digital art.

Regarding this topic, Ashkan Alex Atashkar, Co-Founder of Seed.Photo, expressed that nowadays, artificial intelligence competes with human imagination. He stated: “Awards Photos opens the doors to a new era by bringing together traditional photography, blockchain technology, and NFT art. Therefore, the world’s first NFT photography competition had to be held in Istanbul, which holds great importance with its art and history. Everyone talks about artificial intelligence today. But is artificial intelligence a friend or a foe to us? Is it helping us in art or harming art? One of the biggest problems of our age in the online environment is art theft, and this is one of the most feared issues for artists. The solution to this problem lies in the Blockchain technology we mentioned. With Blockchain, photographs can be preserved on platforms in the way they should be, uniquely, and there will be no room for any theft. That’s why we aimed to create NFT photographs by combining Blockchain technology and photography art.”
