The shortlist photos for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards have finally been unveiled. This year, the award competition received a record-breaking amount of submissions – 139,544 images from 166 countries. The submissions were split into three large groups – Professional, Open and Youth – each of which were split into a wide range of sub-categories. The Professional and Open groups had the most diverse set of sub-categories, ranging from architectural and conceptual photography to nature and wildlife photography.
We’ve made our own selection of images, but we definitely suggest checking out the World Photography Organisation’s website and browsing the images for yourselves. Because it’s just the shortlist, there’s still a huge collection of images that we can browse through. The pictures, and the photographers who took them, are as diverse as our world is – people, animals, and the world in all of its natural (and urban) glory.
This is the second such comprehensive look at the year’s best photography that we’ve seen for 2013. We also wrote about the 2013 National Geographic Photo Contest, which featured its own selection of incredible photographs.
