The next few months will be a challenging time for photographers and the team at the World Photography Organisation are committed to doing all that we can to support you. Now more than ever, it's about staying connected to the creative community.
From Monday right through to Friday we'll be bringing you a varied programme of free, online events and resources to ensure you keep developing those ideas and pressing that shutter.
From tips on using this time as effectively as possible, to online portfolio reviews, to linking some of the best photographic chroniclers, interpreters and artists around the planet together, we hope this programme will keep the World Photography Organisation community talking, and creating, so great photographic work can continue to be made. Check out what we have planned for every day of the working week, Monday to Friday, to give you the tools you need to stay connected.

Monday - Developing your practice
Set yourself a goal at the start of each week. Learn a new skill or expand your understanding of photography to help develop your practice. In these weekly articles we'll release every Monday we'll give you a springboard of what you might choose to focus on that week.
Tuesday - Through the viewfinder
On Tuesdays we'll be speaking to an expert in the industry to bring you advice on how to go even further with your photography. Hosted on Instagram Live on the World Photography Organisation's Instagram profile, they'll be a live Q&A at the end of each 30-minute session.
Wednesday - #SWPA showcase
We had photographers from 203 territories submitting to this year's Awards. Focusing on celebrating local talent on a global stage, we'll highlight photographers from a specific region every Wednesday.
Thursday - Portfolio reviews
Receive free feedback from experts on your current project with our free online portfolio reviews. Every Thursday we'll be offering a limited number of portfolio reviews conducted by the World Photography Organisation staff and members of our Academy. Reviewers so far include Zelda Cheatle, Mike Trow and Scott Gray.
Friday - That Friday feeling
Start your weekend right with our inspiring image round-ups from the last three years of images entered to the Sony World Photography Awards. Thematically collated, That Friday feeling blog posts include the best of Zen photography, creative photography and more. We'll be posting these, you guessed it! Every Friday.
