Due to latest UK government guidance, the World Photography Organisation, supported by Sony, has decided to cancel the London exhibition of the Sony World Photography Awards 2021 which was scheduled to go on display in Somerset House from 16 April – 3 May 2021.
The Awards’ ceremony which was to take place in London has also been cancelled. Overall winners of this year’s competitions will be revealed, as planned, on the 15th April via digital and video platforms.
Category winners, finalists and shortlists across the Awards’ four competitions will be announced in the months leading up to the 15th April. Announcements will be accompanied by a programme of online events and initiatives to be listed on our website in due course.
Exhibitions of the work of this year’s winners and shortlists scheduled beyond April 2021 will be assessed closer to the time and in accordance with local health guidelines.
