The Sony World Photography Awards recently announced the shortlisted winners for its 2018 competition. Sifting through over 300,000 images from photographers across the globe, an expert panel of judges selected a handful of winners who specialize in a broad range of categories such as Travel, Culture, Portraiture, News & Affairs, as well as Sports.
“The range of work considered was breathtaking, and diversity among the judges ensured robust discussions, leading to outstanding winners,” said judge Naomi Cass to Digital Trends. “I was impressed by the diversity of approaches within each category and the breadth of photographers from across the globe.”
"This picture was taken in Death Valley National Park in California. My subject is a friend of mine who I grew up with, Isaac Linton. Coming from the same town, we had similar struggles and challenges growing up. The still body and frantic head illustrate how casual it's become to attempt to navigate a "normal" life while so many behind the scene factors, challenges, and struggles simultaneously sit in our minds." – Carlos DeLaRosa – Image © Carlos DeLaRosa, USA, Shortlist, Open, Motion, 2018 Sony World Photography Awards #SWPA #SonyWorldPhotographyAwards #PhotoComp #PhotographyCompetition #Shortlist #Winners #Bestof
