Organized by the World Photography Organisation, the Sony World Photography Awards are now in their 10th year! The Awards offer four competitions to photographers: Professional, Open, Youth and Student Focus.
Scott Gray, CEO of World Photography Organisation, said, “We are extremely proud to reach our 10th anniversary. Since launching in 2007 the Sony World Photography Awards has grown consistently in both size and credibility. Across the years the awards have discovered and celebrated a huge variety of photography. I am honored that emerging photographers across the world have been able to use the awards to launch their careers, and established photographers can use us to extend their networks. We are committed to challenging photographers to push their creative boundaries in the years to come.”
The Student Focus competition is open through December 5, while the Open and Youth competitions continue until January 5. The Professional competition closes January 10.Professional entries are judged on a body of work; images submitted in the Open category are judged individually. The Open categories are: Architecture, Culture, Enhanced, Motion, Nature, Wildlife, Portraits, Still Life, Street Photography and Travel. The Canada National Award will again recognize the best work from Canadian entries.
