Sony World Photography Awards now calling for entries for 2012 edition


Organised by the World Photography Organisation, the Sony World Photography Awards is an annual contest open to both amateur and professional photographers.

In the professional competition, photographers can enter 15 categories divided into three themes - commercial, fine art, and photojournalism and documentary. This year a Nature and Wildlife category has been added in a bid to attract more entries.
The Moving Image Awards, which rewards movies and multimedia works shot by photographers, is also back after its inaugural edition this year. This time, however, it features six categories - nature and wildlife, people, extraordinary and ordinary, commercial, fine art, and documentary.
The Student Focus contest continues as well, with the goal to "support and connect the next generation of photography pros," issued from some of the world's best universities.

Photographers have until 04 January 2012 to enter the awards. The winners will be announced in a ceremony in London in April 2012, when the overall winner will receive the Iris D'Or Sony World Photography Awards, which comes with a $25,000 cash prize.
The ceremony will coincide with the World Photography Festival, taking place at Somerset House in London.
