While Erdély has nine feature films under his belt and is best known for his work with Kornél Mundruczó, and Arkapaw has won two Primetime Emmy Awards for the TV series True Detective and Top of the Lake, and has lensed films such as Animal Kingdom and Snowtown Murders, Colombian-born Guzmán received the award for the first feature film he worked on. 

Another debutant, Iran's Morteza Gheidi, received a Special Mention for the camera work on Ida Panahandeh's Nahid. The jury also highlighted the efforts of Sarajevo-born cinematographer Vladan Radović on Francesco Munzi's Black Souls [+see also:
