"An intrinsic part of the World Photography Organisation has been to uncover new photographic talent and provide the inspiration and opportunities for those individuals. Around the world photographers have stories to tell and it's the act of sharing, presenting and recognizing these stories that keeps the photographic medium alive. All this is acknowledged and valued in the National Awards." - Scott Gray, Founder and CEO, World Photography Organisation
