The World Photography Organization is a global platform for photography initiatives. Working across up to 180 countries, their aim is to raise the level of conversation around photography by celebrating the best imagery and photographers on the planet. The organization hosts a year-round portfolio of events including the Sony World Photography Award, the world's leading photography competition.

There are seven competitions, seven chances: this year’s format for our Youth competition gives you more opportunities to be the next Youth Photographer of the Year. The aim of the competition(s) is to find the best single images by photographers aged 12-19. These competitions are designed to help young photographers grow and flourish into the next stages of their careers. Entries require a single image that responds to the brief/theme that is chosen each year.

This is a great opportunity for aspiring photographers to gain international recognition for their work. The competition will be given flights and accommodations to attend the awards show in person.
