Difa Award winners 2021


Congratulations to the winners of the Digital Innovation Fashion Awards 2021.

A quote from digital artist and judge Frank Nitty:

"First off I just want to express some appreciation for all the hard work and the guts for entering a competition. The first step to working as a professional artist is to overcome fear. Confidence is a big thing. Generally looking at the images I notice a kind of “otherworldliness” to all the works. Maybe we are currently in a collective mood of looking for inspiration that lives more inside our own little bubble of thoughts?As opposed to looking at the outside world? Portraits are also a big theme here. All the works seem very personal and introvert. Is this a sign of the times? Apart from that I find the diversity very striking, Asian, Caucasian and African models. Love it."

Special work which stood out. Jamie Elders work for Gucci at church capturing the essence and vibe of the brand and voices of today.'
