- Sony World Photography Awards - Amateur commended images
- PhotoMenton 1er prix attribué par les photographes

- Mobile Art Europe Award, Berlin with the motivation:
„Klaus Raabe is a classic photo-artist who [...] processes his pictures digitally.
At first sight his pictures present a mathematical impression. Raabe seems to be a person who wants to put things in their proper place, but at a closer look the artist shows up jumping over the borders of his sense of mathematical order and leaving room for digitally processed shades and diffractions. We come face to face with two different worlds mysteriously urging us to find the message."
