Sony World Photography Awards has just announced the 2022 student and youth shortlist. The competition which closed on 7 January invited photographers from all over the world to enter an image for free to be in with the chance of winning Sony camera kit. 

The brief for the student competition this year was Connections. Sony asked entrants to submit five to 10 images documenting how you or your subject interact with the world. Using prompts such as ‘how do you connect with your surrounding or local and environments’ or ‘how do you create bonds with your family, friends and colleagues’, entrants were encouraged to respond creatively while sticking to the brief.
