Hurry and submit your images and take part in this year’s Sony World Photography Awards. With a total prize fund of $30,000 (USD) and the latest Sony digital imaging equipment for the taking you would be mad not to give it a shot. Oh, and did we mention there are no entry fees?

The competition, a decade long partnership with Sony and the World Photography Organization celebrates its 11th anniversary this year, and is considered as one of the most respected and influential photography competitions in existence. Its aim is to showcase the best photography in the world from the past year.

The organisers claim that the competition is an authoritative voice in the photographic industry, with the power to shape the careers of its winning, shortlisted and commended photographers.
In 2016 the total number of entries received since the first edition in 2007 surpassed 1 million images. Winners are taken on a year-long journey, bringing untold exposure and providing a global stage on which to present their work.

Each Spring, the hugely popular Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition, featuring a selection of winning, shortlisted and commended images, is curated at the landmark Somerset House, London.

The Sony World Photography Awards is open to both amateur and professional photographers of all ages, each with their own category, so if don’t be intimidated by the thought that you would be going against professionals. They will have a category all to themselves.

Categories include best series with a deadline of January 11 at 1300 GMT, best single images with a deadline of January 4 at 1300 GMT, youth, again with a deadline of January 4 at the same time and Student Focus, which has already been closed.
