This September, Nokia worked with us to send 8 lucky individuals on a truly unique SMW13 experience. Armed with the new Nokia Lumia 1020, these 8 individuals traveled across the globe to report on a different SMW city. Each of our reporters possesses a different skill and talent for which we thought they’d stand out during the week.

Now, we want to celebrate their work and coverage of SMW13. See SMW13 through their eyes.

Sylvia Johanna photographed her journey to LA

Sylvia lives on Instagram as goldie_berlin — and her photos are incredible. Syliva didn’t use words to share her journey with SMW LA, but with photos like these, she didn’t need to.

A huge thank you to each of our reporters for being a part of SMW13. And most importantly, we want to thank our incredible SMW13 community for being so welcoming. The beauty of the SMW community is the friendliness, the spirit of collaboration and the openness. You embodied our global theme, and we look forward to celebrating SMW14 with you again.
