2018 Sony World Photography Awards: Category Winners
From serious conflict photojournalism to the surreal and downright comedic, the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards is a celebration of photography in all its glory.
The prestigious award is made up of four competitions: Professional, Open, Youth and Student Focus.
Bringing together the best amateur and professional photographers from across the world, the Sony World Photography Awards are notable for their international scope. This year's winners come from 9 different countries, and tackle vastly different themes and subject matters.
As the 2018 Sony World Photography Awards exhibition opens at Somerset House, we choose our favourite photographs from this year's competition winners.
