The World Photography Organisation presents the winners of the 2021 Sony World Photography Awards Open Competition, a competition dedicated to the best individual images. For the 2021 competition, more than 100 photographers have been shortlisted alongside the overall winners in each of the ten categories, who will each receive the latest Sony camera equipment to accompany their photographic work. In addition, they will automatically be entered to win the prestigious Open Photographer of the Year award of $5,000 (USD).

The overall winner of the Open competition will then be announced on April 15. The winners’ and finalists’ work will also be featured in a virtual exhibition on the World Photography Organisation’s website starting April 15.
