The World Photography Organisation has opened the 15th edition of the Sony World Photography Awards, the world’s most diverse photography competition.
Now in its 15th year, the Sony World Photography Awards are one of the world’s leading photography competitions, celebrating the best contemporary photography from across the globe and providing photographers with significant exposure and career-building opportunities.
All category winners of the Professional, Open, Youth and Student competitions will receive digital imaging equipment from Sony. In addition, cash prizes of $25,000 (USD) will be presented to the Photographer of the Year and $5,000 (USD) to the Open Photographer of the Year. All winning and shortlisted photographers’ works will be exhibited at the annual Sony World Photography Awards exhibition in London and will then be toured internationally. The winning images will also be published in the annual Awards book.
Produced by the World Photography Organisation, the internationally acclaimed Sony World Photography Awards is one of the most important fixtures in the global photographic calendar. Sony supports the Awards to help the continued development of photographic culture by giving a global platform to today’s talent. Entry to the Awards is completely free and photographers are judged anonymously by a panel of industry leading judges.
For both established and emerging artists, the Awards offer world-class opportunities for exposure of their work.
In 2022 the Sony World Photography Awards exhibition returns to Somerset House, London from 15 April – 2 May 2022 followed by its first ever presentation at the Open Eye Gallery, Liverpool from 10 November – 11 December 2022.
