The World Photography Organisation has selected 51 winners of the Sony World Photography Awards in the National Awards category
A picture is often worth more than a thousand words. The art of photography is a unique discipline that gives us the opportunity to pause the world around us in a touching moment.
To celebrate the craft to the bone, The World Photography Organisation annually selects the best pictures in various categories of the Sony World Photography contest.
And now, the organization has revealed the winning pictures in the category of National Award.
The jury selected 51 best pictures from 50 different countries on Earth.
The aim of the initiative is to support local photographic communities in different corners of the world.
Overall, the jury has to select the winning photographs from over 330,000 images from 220 territories which were submitted to the Sony World Photography Awards 2021.
Over 165,000 were entered to the Open competition (from which the National Awards winner was selected).
