The shortlist for the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards, one of the world’s leading photography competitions, has been announced by the World Photography Organisation.

Photographers from 166 countries submitted nearly 140,000 images, the highest number of entries in the awards’ seven year history. From the submissions, the judges have selected a shortlist representing the very finest in international contemporary photography from the past 12 months.

W.M Hunt, Chair of the Honorary Jury, said that the shortlist is “a healthy and diverse representation of contemporary photography by an international range of practitioners.”

He added that the judges were a “soulful and hardworking group” who have given both emerging and established photographers a global platform on which they can be highlighted and celebrated.

All the shortlisted images will go on show at Somerset House, London, from 1-18 May as part of the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition.

Professional category winners and the coveted L’Iris D’Or/ Sony World Photography Awards Photographer of the Year title will be announced at a gala ceremony in London on April 30, 2014.
