Beautiful Early Entries Of The 2020 Sony World Photography Awards

The 2020 Sony World Photography Awards are now taking entries, and the organizers were once again kind enough to share some of their early photos with us, gathered here. This year’s competition has an expanded youth-competition schedule, a new overall environment category, and two new awards: the Latin America Professional Award, and the China National Student Award. Entries in the open competition will be accepted until January 7, 2020. Captions here were written by the photographers.
