Sony in collaboration with World Photography Orgainsation  is searching for the next generation of talented young photographers in this competition, open to anyone 19 and under.

Whether you are studying photography in school or college, or just have a passion for taking photographs of your daily life, enter this competition for the chance to become the Sony World Photography Awards, Youth Award Winner.

Categories

There are three great categories available to enter that will allow you to illustrate your blossoming photographic talent;

  • Culture: What does culture mean to you? Take a photograph that depicts your take on culture; it could be your local youth culture and social gatherings, a culture you have immersed yourself in whilst travelling, traditions amongst a tight-knit community or large-scale cultural gatherings such as festivals.
  • Environment: Capture your local environment through a photograph; perhaps you want to illustrate the naturally beautiful qualities of your environment, or highlight an issue which is having a negative effect on it.
  • People: Find inspiration in the faces of people around you and take a portrait that communicates a story about your subject. Look for expressions and passing glances that might otherwise go unnoticed and push the boundaries of what can be achieved within a portrait, the most traditional of photographic styles.
