The Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition 2022.
It’s not winning any prizes for snappiness.
But it does hold a lot of prize-winning snaps, as chosen by a panel including former Vogue pictures editor Mike Trow, Ghanaian curator Richmond Orlando Mensah and Portuguese artist and researcher Ângela Ferreira.
It’s all coordinated by the World Photography Organisation – who seem like they know a little about the subject. Open to professionals, amateurs, students and even kids, the competition brings together work from a huge range of contemporary photographers all around the world, with over 200 countries being represented.

The top photos are going to be displayed throughout April at Somerset House, where, alongside the judge’s favourites, you’ll be able to peruse a special accompanying display of work by Edward Burtnyksy. He’s the recipient of this year’s Outstanding Contribution to Photography award, and you’ll be able to soak up a dozen large-scale photographs picked from across his impressive 40 year career.
Tickets are on sale now, and there’s even a 20% early bird discount if you book before 15th February.
You’ll have to make it snappy, though.
NOTE: The Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition 2022 runs at Somerset House from 13th April – 2nd May. Tickets cost £12-15, and you can book HERE.
