News: Sony World Photography Awards – Last call for Entries

For those are interested to take part in a photography competition…
We have the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards!

And here are some reminders on the submission date:

Submission of entries for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards (SWPA) will officially be closed on 6 January 2014 (for Open and Youth competition) and 9 January 2014 (for Professional competition). As such, it would be great if you could help us spread the words to your readers, and those who are interested to enter their best work can do so for free on the World Photography Organisation (WPO) website.

Which means in another week or so from today…
So if you have not yet to submit your photographs, do so now! 🙂

Good luck!


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 shortlists for the 2014 awards will be announced on 4 February, followed by the winners of the Open categories on 18 March. The overall and Professional categories winners will be revealed at the Sony World Photography Awards gala ceremony held in London on 30 April.

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.
