El talento de la fotografía mundial se da cita, como cada año, en los Sony World Photography Awards. La lista de artistas preseleccionados ya se puede consultar en la página oficial de estos premios y sus imágenes serán parte de la exhibición anual realizada en la Somerset House de Londres, entre el 20 de abril y el 6 de mayo.

Esta edición ha registrado la participación más alta hasta la fecha, con un total de 319.561 imágenes presentadas en el conjunto de categorías, que incluyen galerías profesionales, imágenes de estudiantes de fotografía, trabajos de jóvenes entre 12 y 19 años y hasta un concurso abierto. Este año los jueces se han mostrado particularmente interesados en la calidad de las fotos presentadas y la habilidad de los participantes para captar las preocupaciones y tendencias actuales.
