The 2014 Sony World Photography Awards that I wrote and shared about earlier in the year, is reaching the end of the competition. The submissions of entries for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards will officially closed on on 6 January 2014 (for Open and Youth competition) and 9 January 2014 (for Professional competition). If you are still keen to submit and enter into the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards, you can enter your best work and can do so for free on theWorld Photography Organisation (WPO) website. In the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards, there were 3 Singaporeans who were honoured for their works!
Organised by WPO, this annual contest is widely known as the leading global photographic awards programme, where talented photographers across many diverse fields are discovered and both professional and amateur photographers are invited to share their talents on a global stage.Locally, Singaporean amateur photographers who submit entries for any of the ten Open categories will also be automatically considered for the Singapore National Award, an award created specially to uncover and honour the top three best images shot by Singaporean photographers.
All category winners, including winners of the Singapore National Award, will receive the latest digital imaging equipment from Sony, while their photographs will be published in the 2014 edition of the Sony World Photography Awards book and exhibited at Somerset House, London from 1 -18 May 2014 as well as on the WPO website. The winner of the 2014 L’Iris d’Or/Photographer of the Year title will be presented with USD$25,000 and the Open Photographer of the Year will receive USD$5,000.
Go for it, enjoy your photography, shoot more and you might discover an outstanding work that you like a lot and submit them to the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards!
