Drawn from the four corners of the world and covering a huge range of subjects, the winning photographers were chosen from over 96,000 entries to the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards.

The achievement of each of the 14 winners is extraordinary not only in terms of the competition they faced, but also the fact that these winners are largely not professional photographers; instead they are simply individuals who love photography. The youngest winning photographer is Stephanie Anjo from the United Kingdom who is just 14 years old and the winners are geographically spread from Mexico to Malaysia.

The Open and Youth competition winners were chosen by an expert panel led by Sam Barzilay, Creative Director of United Photo Industries. The Mobile Phone winner was selected following a public vote on the World Photography Organisation website.
