Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition

The very best professional and amateur contemporary photography from around the world goes on display at Somerset House for the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition. From over 130,000 entries, winning and shortlisted works have been chosen in professional, youth and Open Competition categories - for amateurs and enthusiasts - showcasing the best photo-journalism, fine art and commercial photography. The overall winner follows in the footsteps of last 2014's winner of the L'Iris d'Or/ Photographer of the Year, American photographer Sara Naomi Lewkowicz whose 'Shane and Maggie' series takes an unflinching look at domestic abuse.

 

About Somerset House

Somerset House, once the site of a spectacular Tudor palace, now includes a magnificent 18th century art gallery housing celebrated collections belonging to the Courtauld Institute Gallery, as well as the Embankment Galleries (which replaced the Hermitage Rooms and The Gilbert Collection - the latter re-opened at the Victoria and Albert Museum in June 2009).
