2014 Sony World Photography Awards Shortlist

  • Posted by SHFT on February 7, 2014 in Photography
  • Another year, another edition of the Sony World Photography Awards, the annual contest allowing talented photographers -- professional, amateur or youth -- to show off their chops in front of a global audience. Looking for "stories that force the viewer to find something surprising within the everyday," the World Photography Organization announced the shortlist this week, paring down from almost 140,000 entries from 166 countries. The final winners will be announced in March and April; until then you can whet your whistle with this selection of highlights from the shortlist.
