Sony World Photography Awards
The World Photography Organisation (WPO) is an international organisation which organizes events and competitions for amateur and professional photographers, sponsored by Sony and therefore also known as Sony World Photography Awards
The event has taken place in Cannes since 2007, and in 2011 moved in London.
Other events organized by the World Photography Organisation are:
World Photography Student Focus Competition

The competition offers 10 categories, ranging from Action to Travel, with no limits on age or experience.
There are three levels Student, Open and Professional.
Important to know: If you take part in this event, you will not be able to participate in the Youth Award or Professional Competition!
The main award is: Iris d’Or, cash prize and the title “Sony World Photographer of the Year”!
I share with you some of the winning photos, and photos, which I find most interesting!
