Competitions

The Sony Photographer Awards have been going for 10 years in 2017, and is one of the best known an prestigious awards for Photographers. I chose these awards as the exposure I would get from winning would boost my career, by getting published in an exhibition in London and in a book.


Sony awards Open, Motion

I chose the motion section as I have an image from Sri Lanka in 2016, which fits the requirements of the competition, which includes a boy jumping across the road in a rural area. Although the Open awards give less benefits and recognition than the Professional awards, any award is important for a progressing photographer.

Sony Professional Awards, Portraiture

I also wanted to enter into the Professional competition, which is the main award in the Sony awards. I chose portraiture as I have to enter at least 5 images, and I have a series of portraits from Sri Lanka.
