Sony World Photography Awards 2014

For the third year, Candlestar is curating the Sony World Photography Awards which will be held from 1-18 May 2014 at Somerset House.

The exhibition will feature shortlisted works in categories including Professional, Open, Youth and Student Focus. There is a wealth of different categories within the awards, chronicling photography from its most accessible to its most exceptional – from the Instagram ‘selfie’ images to the Outstanding Contribution to Photography award.

Launched in 2008, the Sony World Photography Awards is dedicated to supporting and cultivating photographic culture. Through a range of annual competitions, the award hopes to discover new talent in the world of photography and moving image.

Winners of this year’s Awards will be revealed at the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards Gala Ceremony on 30 April in London.
