Sony World Photography Awards - open for entries

The Sony World Photography Awards is a free photo competition that is open to everyone - you can submit entries until January 2019 (30 November 2018 if you are a student).

At Park Cameras we know that we have a talented bunch of photographers amongst our customers, readers and followers - our #parkcameras tag on Instagram features hundreds of fantastic photos. As such, we’d always encourage everyone to take part in this (& any other) competition - it's a great habit to get into.
