Classification winners.

Over 170,000 images were entered to this years Open competition, so I believe the jury had an extremely difficult task picking the winners It will be much more hard to pick the overall winner in April, however Im truly curious to see who it will be. Its set up to happen on 12 April, so theres a month left. As for the category winners, each of them has been granted Sony gear and competes for the Open Photographer of the Year title and a $5,000 (USD) primary reward.

While we count down until the general winner statement, Sony World Photography Awards has another reward for our souls and eyes. It has actually announced its classification winners and shortlist of the 2022 Open competition, recognizing the very best single shots from 2021.
