One of the world’s leading photographic awards programmes for professionals is still open for entry.
The 2013 Sony World Photography Awards sees professionals contend for the coveted title of L’Iris d’Or/Sony World Photography Awards Professional Photographer of the Year 2013, plus a $25,000 (USD) cash prize.
Amateurs can compete for a Open Photographer of the Year 2013 award, plus $5,000 (USD). All category winners across the awards will receive the latest digital imaging equipment from Sony.
If that wasn’t incentive enough, all 2013 winning and finalist photographers will receive an exhibition of their work at Somerset House, one of London’s historical landmarks, from April – May 2013. Winners will also be featured across the WPO website and all winners, as well as a selection of shortlisted photographers, will be published in the annual Sony World Photography Awards hardcover book.
The deadline for entries for the ten Open categories, for amateurs and enthusiasts, is 4 January 2013, 23.59GMT.
The Professional competition, with 15 categories for serious photographers, will close on 9 January 2013, 23.59GMT.
