Celebrating local Latin America talent!
The World Photography Organisation and Sony Latin America have set up a new initiative for the 2022 Awards called the Latin America National Awards. This new format shines a spotlight on the region’s vibrant and varied photographic community. Bringing together the region’s great photographers by celebrating their striking single images alongside one another, the programme aims to draw attention to a very important and dynamic group and showcase their best single images to the rest of the world.
Placing talent from across Mexico, Central America and South America at the centre of the stage, the Latin America National Awards will reward a shortlist of 10 photographers, including first, second and third place winners. A photographer from each country will be recognised in the shortlist or be one of the three winners.
