We are delighted to announce the Open and Youth winners, alongside the inaugural Mobile Phone winner, of the world’s biggest photography competition, the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.

Drawn from 177 different countries across the world and covering a huge range of subjects, the winning photographers were chosen from over 96,000 entries to this year’s Sony World Photography Awards.

The youngest winning photographer is Stephanie Anjo from the United Kingdom who is just 14 years old and the winners are geographically spread from Mexico to Malaysia.

The Open and Youth competition winners were chosen by an expert panel led by Sam Barzilay, Creative Director of United Photo Industries. The Mobile Phone winner was selected following a public vote on the WPO website.

All the winning images will be exhibited at Somerset House, London from 24th April – 10th May and will be published in the 2015 edition of the annual Sony World Photography Awards book.

A selection of the winning and shortlisted images are on sale via our official 2015 SWPA printing partner theprintspace.
