San Diego, CA—The World Photography Organization (WPO) revealed the Professional competition 2023 finalists and shortlisted photographers for the Sony World Photography Awards 2023.

Now in its 16th year, the Professional competition rewards exceptional series of work both for technical skill and an original approach to storytelling. Further, the winner of Photographer of the Year 2023 is chosen from the Professional finalists. The WPO will announce that winner on April 13.

More than 415,000 images from 200+ countries and territories were submitted to the Sony World Photography Awards 2023. What’s more, 180,000+ were entered into the Professional competition—the highest number of entries on record.

“Finding original and different viewpoints photographically is challenging but ever more rewarding as photographers embrace global visual trends and at the same time explore their own culture and history,” commented Mike Trow, jury chair.

A selection of images by finalists as well as shortlisted photographers will exhibit as part of the Sony World Photography Awards at Somerset House, London, from April 14 to May 1, 2023.
