Three Singaporean Photographers Win Big at 2013 Sony World Photography Awards

Photography enthusiasts have a common trait and that is viewing and admiring photography works by fellow photographers whether is it, professional, leisure or competition arena. This is where we can learn as well from other photographers whether they are an amateur, semi-professional, serious enthusiast or professional photographer.

The Sony World Photography Awards, organised by World Photography Organisation, is widely recognised as the leading global photographic awards programme, where talents across many diverse fields of photography are discovered through a range of competitions held annually. The winning works of the photographers are featured throughout the WPO website and in international exhibitions, offering unparalleled exposure for the photographers.
