The 2018 Sony Alpha Awards is now open to all professional and amateur Australian photographers with eight categories on offer including portrait, landscape, macro, sports, editorial, nature, abstract and youth, plus up to $3,000 of Sony camera product per category available to win.
From the category winners, an overall grand prize winner will also be selected for a ‘once in a lifetime’ photography trip to Tanzania with World Photo Adventures, compliments of Sony.
Sony ANZ head of digital imaging, Jun Yoon said, “The hugely successful launch of the Sony a9 in 2017 helped establish Sony as a market leader in mirrorless camera technology – empowering photography professionals and enthusiasts to capture stunning images. The Sony Alpha Awards is the perfect way to celebrate their talents and give their photos the platform they deserve.”
