BREATHTAKING SHOTS FROM SONY’S WORLD PHOTOGRAPHY CONTEST

If you’re into photography and haven’t taken a shot at the Sony World Photography Awards… here’s your chance! Since 2008, Sony has been putting on the award show in support of the photographic community and to further expose great photography from around the world.

The competition has 3 entry types including Open, Youth and Professional. The Open competition is great for photography enthusiasts, the youth is available for anyone under the age of 19 and the professional competition is for more experienced photographers. Choose wisely because once you enter professional you cannot enter the open contest and vice versa.

In a Crowd of King Penguins
King Penguins live in large colonies in South Georgia, a speck of an island in the South Atlantic Ocean and just below the Antarctic Convergence. They are very beautiful, gracious and yet almost comical birds and a true delight to observe. This image aims to capture and reflect how gracious and colorful wildlife can be even at the ends of the Earth.

Cube houses (Dutch: Kubuswoningen) are a set of innovative houses built in Rotterdam and Helmond in the Netherlands, designed by architect Piet Blom and based on the concept of “living as an urban roof”: high density housing with sufficient space on the ground level. Blom tilted the cube of a conventional house 45 degrees, and rested it upon a hexagon-shapedpylon. His design represents a village within a city, where each house represents a tree, and all the houses together, a forest.
