2019 Sony World Photography Awards on Thursday 18th April - Wednesday 1st May 2019


The world’s best imagery from 2018 will be on show at Somerset House for the 2019 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition. With more than 800 images on display, this global photography exhibition presents all winning and shortlisted entries, including the Photographer of the Year, from this year’s Awards across its four competitions: Professional, Open, Youth and Student.

From portraiture to landscape, architecture to wildlife and fine art to street photography, the selection is truly international in its scope. The exhibition opens to the public on Thursday 18 April and closes Monday 6 May. The display will then embark on a worldwide tour.

Alongside the main display will be an exclusive exhibition of work by recipients of the 2018 Professional and Student Grants, as well as the shortlist and winning imagery of the ZEISS Photography Award 2019. Another highlight not to miss is the carefully curated set of images from The Swap Project, an initiative between the World Photography Organisation and the Creativehub where the global photography community swapped their best prints with one another.


A special curation of images and film by the Awards’ 2019 Outstanding Contribution to Photography recipient Nadav Kander will exhibited in the East Wing. Celebrated for his intriguing photographic practice, British artist Kander has released seven books, been included in almost 30 international exhibitions and in 2015 was awarded an Honorary Fellowship Award from the Royal Photographic Society. A unique selection of acclaimed and lesser-known series – including his varied portraiture, figure studies, landscape and moving image works – creates a substantial survey of Kander’s career. This is a rare opportunity to witness the artist’s varied imagery all in one space.
