There are seven weeks left to enter the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards, which boasts cash prizes totalling $30,000, plus Sony camera gear.
John Moore, last year’s winner of the free-to-enter competition, said: ‘I would recommend the Sony World Photography Awards to all photographers who want to highlight their work.’
Amateur photographers have until 5 January 2016 to enter the Open category, while the Professional section closes a week later.
This year’s judges include Emma Lynch, picture editor at the BBC global news website, and Fiona Rogers, global business development manager at Magnum Photos.
The Open category will be chaired by Jael Marschner, group picture editor at Time Out.
The Student Focus competition will be judged with a panel that includes British Journal of Photography editor Simon Bainbridge and Matthew Tucker, picture editor at BuzzFeed UK.
