2017 Sony World Photography Winners Announced

2017 Sony World Photography Winners Announced

The Sony World Photography Awards are inarguably the world’s largest photography competition. This year, over 105,000 entries were received for the Open categories section and this week the top 10 winners were revealed.

The work of these winners will be shown at the Sony World Photography Awards & Martin Parr–2017 Exhibition at Somerset House, London which opens on the 21st April and runs until the 7th of May. The exhibition will include all the winning, shortlisted (top 10) and commended (top 50) photographs drawn from more than 227,000 entries from 183 countries.

Chair of the Open competition, journalist and photographer Damien Demolder, said of the winning Open images: “It has been a pleasure and an inspiration to be exposed to such a volume of great work, and a privilege too that I could share in the personal moments, the joys, tears, life and losses of photographers from all around the globe who recorded their experiences through their pictures.”

Each winning photographer receives a Sony α7 II with lens kit and will now compete to win the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards’ Open Photographer of the Year title, a trip to the winners awards ceremony in London in April and $5,000 US dollars in cash prizes. The overall winner will be announced on the 20th April alongside the winners of the Professional competition.
