We round off 2022 with one more Pick of the Pics and what a striking selection of images we have to share with you. This week we have entries from India, Sweden and New Zealand, a reminder how the Sony World Photography Awards embraces work by photographers from across the world. Classic still life, dreamlike nighttime shots and the magnificence of nature - there really is an image to excite all photographers below. Don't forget! It's the final call for the Open and Youth competition, so make sure you submit your images before 6 January 13:00 GMT.
