The World Photography Organization has announced the finalists and shortlisted photographers in the Professional competition for the Sony World Photography Awards 2020. With over 345,000 images from 203 territories submitted to the four competitions, the SWP Awards are the perfect opportunity to peruse the very best photography the world has to offer.
Now celebrating its 13th year, a new Environment category has been added to reflect the growing importance of this topic in both fine art photography and photojournalism.
The finalist projects for SWP Awards 2020 engage with a wide variety of topics, photography techniques and presentation methods. They cover personal subjects and observations, inventive approaches to storytelling and shedding light on little known but critical issues.
There are ten categories in total, including Architecture, Creative, Discovery, Documentary, Environment, Landscape, Natural World & Wildlife, Portraiture, Sport and Still Life.
Images from the 2020 competition will be available to view at Somerset House, London from 17 April to 4 May, 2020. Tickets will be available to buy (opens in new tab) on 5 March, ranging from £9 – £14.
