The World Photography Organisation has announced the winners for the Open, Youth and 3D categories of the 2013 Sony-sponsored World Photography Awards. The organization announced a shortlist for all the categories last month, and will be announcing the professional category winners at Somerset House in London on April 25th. The 2013 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition will open a day later, and will run from April 26th - May 12th at Somerset House in London.
The aim of this category is to discover budding photographers, and in doing so, the WPO hopes that the award will expose their work of young photographers to a larger audience. One overall Youth Photographer of the Year will be selected from the three winners and this will be announced at the awards ceremony on April 25th.
