Be inspired by the winners and shortlists of the 2022 Sony World Photography Awards Open Competition

During the countdown until the announcement of the big winner, Sony World Photography Awards has another treat for our eyes and our souls. He announced the winners of his category and his shortlist of the 2022 Open competition, rewarding the best single shots of 2021.

With over 100 shortlisted photographers in addition to ten category winners, this is truly a beautiful and inspiring gallery. So, let’s check them out and get our daily dose of photography inspiration.

Over 170,000 images were submitted to this year’s Open competition, so I think the judging panel had a very difficult task selecting the winners. It will be even harder to choose the overall winner in April, but I’m really curious to see who it will be. It’s scheduled for April 12, so there’s a month left. As for the category winners, each received Sony gear and is competing for Open Photographer of the Year and a main prize of $5,000 (USD).

As well as being displayed in online galleries, the winning and shortlisted photos will be exhibited as part of the Sony World Photography Awards at Somerset House. The exhibition will take place from April 13 to May 2, 2022.

And now I leave you to enjoy the selection of winners and shortlists of this year. Since there are over 100 images in this wonderful gallery, I’ll only share some of my personal favorites so you don’t get lost in scrolling. But if you can’t get enough, be sure to check out the whole gallery at World Photography Organization’s website.
