NEW TO 2023

Sustainability Prize

This year the World Photography Organisation launches a brand new prize recognising the stories, people and organisations whose actions highlight one of the United Nations' environmental Sustainable Development Goals. These can include depictions of climate change, a spotlight on ecological technologies and innovations or a celebration of individuals and groups working to make a difference.

The Sustainability Prize rewards the winning photographer with a $5,000 cash prize and a presentation of their project as part of the Sony World Photography Awards exhibition in London. All photographers entering the Professional competition are eligible to win the prize.

Photographer of the Year Solo Presentation

In 2023 the World Photography Organisation introduces a new prize element for Photographer of the Year. In addition to the $25,000 cash prize, a range of Sony digital imaging equipment and inclusion in the Sony World Photography Awards exhibition and book, the winner will also be rewarded with a solo presentation of their work as part of the Sony World Photography Awards London exhibition the following year. This opportunity allows photographers to further develop their winning project or exhibit a brand new work, gaining them additional exposure and advancing their careers. The first of these presentations will be dedicated to the work of Photographer of the Year 2022 Adam Ferguson (Australia) and will take place at the exhibition in Somerset House in April 2023.

Youth Competition Format

The Sony World Photography Awards 2023 introduces a new format to the Youth competition, opening it to anyone under the age of 19 and inviting entrants to submit up to three images related to the theme Your Everyday. Judges will select a shortlist of 10 photographers who will go on to compete for the title of Youth Photographer of the Year.
