Digital Camera World - - IN FOCUS -

The 2018 Sony World Pho­tog­ra­phy Awards are now open for

en­tries. This year, the free-to-en­ter com­pe­ti­tion is marked by the ad­di­tion of two new cat­e­gories to the Pro­fes­sional con­test: Cre­ative and Dis­cov­ery. The judges will be look­ing “to re­ward orig­i­nal­ity, ex­per­i­men­ta­tion and imag­i­na­tion” in these cat­e­gories and they “hope to dis­cover that which would oth­er­wise go un­seen by the Awards”. Also be­ing in­tro­duced this year is a new Sony Grant pro­gramme for the Pro­fes­sional and Stu­dent Fo­cus com­pe­ti­tions. Sony will award mul­ti­ple grants of $7,000 to se­lected win­ners in the Pro­fes­sional cat­e­gories, while short­listed pho­tog­ra­phers from the Stu­dent Fo­cus com­pe­ti­tion will each be given $3,500 to work to­gether on a new com­mis­sion set by Sony and the World Pho­tog­ra­phy Or­gan­i­sa­tion.­
