The annual Sony World Photography Awards is known for showcasing the most breathtaking photos from around the world – and this year is in no way different. In fact, the recently announced winners of this year’s competition will definitely leave you in awe.
The world-famous contest has four categories: Professional, which are judged on a body of work; Open, for best single images; Youth, for young photographers aged 12 to 19 years, and; Student Focus, which is open to those who are studying photography. Winners of each category will be awarded prizes including cash, Sony digital imaging equipment, and the opportunity to have their work displayed in an exhibition. This year, the photo exhibition for the winners will take place in London, United Kingdom.
Aside from the winners for each category, the National Awards also featured one photo among all the entries from each participating country. Each photo has a profound meaning, has depth, and exudes its own charm – a certain appeal that will captivate those who will set their eyes on it.
We’ll give you a peek of this year’s winners. Join us in appreciating these magnificent pieces of work.
