Photographs Shortlisted for the Sony World Photography Awards 2014

The Sony World Photography contest is held every year, which brings the best photographers in the world head to head. Photographs of awe-inspiring qualities appear in the youth, open and professional categories. Currently, the contest for the year 2014 is underway. The photographs appearing this year are simply amazing in both the quality and the story it is telling.

Hasan Baglar’s “That’s Dance” is sure to leave a smile on your face when you see the two Praying Mantises dancing. A baby orangutan that is peeping from its mother’s hold (captured by Chin Boon Leng) will certainly leave you feeling warm inside. One of the most stunning photographs is of the Maha Kumbh Mela captured by Wolfgang Weinhardt. He photographed numerous religious pilgrims walking on the pontoon bridges over the river at the Maha Kumbh Mela that go farther than the eye can see.

The photographs shared below give only a glance at the amazing submissions to this year’s Sony World Photography contest.

This picture by Samantha Fortenberry captures the essence of youth. When you are young, nothing can stop you from enjoying a good time with your friends. Not even the rain can disturb you from having fun in the summer. When you grow up, you may forget the names of your friends but you will never forget the time spent having fun with your friends on the docks during a surprise shower.
