“To truly show hyenas in their element, I decided to photograph them at night. The stars in African night sky are so beautiful that I also wanted to try to include them in my image. I used a remote-control buggy to position my camera at ground-level so that I could photograph the hyena with the beautiful starry sky behind. This is a single exposure. I lit the hyena with two wireless off-camera flashes and used a relatively long shutter speed to expose the stars. Because there was no moon to cause ghosting, it didn’t matter if the hyena moved after the initial flash.” (© Will Burrard-Lucas, UK, 1st Place, Professional, Natural World, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Silent Kingdom Ever since I was a kid, as far back as I can remember, I was attracted to the sea. I dreamt about what lay beneath the waves, and how would it look if suddenly all the water vanished, leaving all the animals and living creatures in stasis. In this way, I could walk within the ocean and see them all, suspended for a moment in time and space. To this day I carry within me that dream; and very gratefully realise it through my photography. Each image is a visualisation of that sublime moment whereupon the beautiful marine life around me is frozen majestically in its natural environment. My intention is to capture the essence of being immersed in the experience and presence of the animal or habitat I am photographing, and to share with others their splendour and soul.” (© Christian Vizl, Mexico, 3rd Place, Professional, Natural World, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Flowers at Dusk, Regents Park, London. The photographs were taken in my favourite park, Regents Park, London, at intervals from June to October 2016. Many were taken just as the light was fading. I find flowers that have begun to decay more beautiful. They remind me of how vulnerable and fragile we all are, how temporary. Some flowers take on the personality of people, some listening, watching, some just being themselves. Other flowers felt like animals – one a horse, another a cockerel, one a large bird flying in the air.” (© Esther Whyatt, UK, Shortlist, Professional, Natural World, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“A survey of specimens held in London’s Natural History Museum. The series was made in June 2016 within the conservation rooms of the museum and was published in FT Weekend Magazine.” (© Felicity Mccabe, UK, Shortlist, Professional, Natural World, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Natural History Museum. Porto. Portugal. Elephants’s skeletons are seen in a room used as material deposit, The skeleton are from the Portuguese colonial time, while the skeleton are real the tusks were removed by the hunters and the ones in the Museum are a reproduction. During the renovation of the museum the equilibrium and the magic of the Museum changed: the animals and the objects gained a new and bizarre life. Displaced from their defined position and out from the staged environment created for the display, they became strange objects, weird creatures inhabiting the space abandoned by the guards of the buildings.” (© Tommaso Rada, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Natural World, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“A variety of urban form and minimalist architecture breaks the old structure, splitting it into triangles, squares and diamond shapes, refracting a new living style on extant spatial structures. Demonstrating a free use of the language of visual forms, it appears like a game, similar to Goldbach’s conjecture; the destruction of the ossified template of the city, a visual exploration of breaking the rules. In a spatial context, when we ignore the aesthetics of the city, ignore the rules and celebrate the deconstruction and reconstruction of the urban space, the space itself gives us more control and adds more joy to the city.” (© Dongni, China, 1st Place, Professional, Architecture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Western China, the pace of economic development has ushered in a new and unprecedented period of transformation, one that has radically redefined the topography of the country whilst displacing significant parts of its population from rural areas to vast, newly-built mega cities. Semi-deserted landscapes carry a profound ambivalence, suggesting at the same time fecundity and sterility, a promise and nothingness. China West is a visual exploration of the impact economic development has had on western China’s landscape, focusing on the dwindling interstice left between nature and urbanisation, a space, which, perhaps more than any other, reveals the true process of change.” (© Julien Chatelin, France, 2nd Place, Professional, Architecture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Prostitution is legal in Greece and the Greek authorities recently decided to implement a 1999 law that stipulates that all brothels must have permits. There are different kinds of brothels, and the top class ones are called Studio. There are a number of differences from normal brothels. The buildings are more discreet, cleaner and tidier, and the prostitutes are more polite in comparison with the normal ones. The price is also higher, around 50 euro. There is a person at the entrance welcoming the clients, and once inside there is a waiting room where the girls available come out to show themselves. At this point, the client can decide whether to stay or to leave. If they decide to stay, a negotiation begins to agree pricing, services and time. These brothels are usually recognisable by a pink neon sign with the word Studio at the front door.” (© Diego Mayon, Italy, 3rd Place, Professional, Architecture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“I had the chance to spend 4 days in the Silver Beach Hotel in November 2016, off the shore of Lake Balaton in Hungary. It’s very much a summer resort, so I found myself out of season while working as a set photographer for a film. Built between 1978 and 1983, the hotel was designed by the brutalist architect Tillai ErnÅ‘. All the rooms were obviously vacant, so I was able to snoop around and explore the entire resort to my heart’s content. The place has a retro feel to it, and a soothing patina that I hope I was able to capture. I was fascinated by how stark yet visually inviting this “”anachronistic”” hotel could be.” (© Adi Bulboacă, Romania, Shortlist, Professional, Architecture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Urban Symmetry presents buildings on the banks of the River Danube, which are emphasized out of their surroundings and put into soundproof, homogeneous space cleaned off the whole exterior information. However, the series cannot be considered as a dry study, because it does not depict the raw reality: if you get a closer view of the photographs, you may discover that none of the pictures show the building in its full form, but only its reflected part. After all, these fictitious buildings coming into existence perfectly grab and condense their original character into themselves, as if you could see human faces and different personalities on the building portraits.” (© Zsolt Hlinka, Hungary, Shortlist, Professional, Architecture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Russia Close-Up. Inspired by the work of A.Siskind, R.Gibson and M.Parr, I’m trying to visualise those trends and going-ons which I feel are important to document in modern Russia.” (© Alexander Anufriev, Russia, 2nd Place, Professional, Conceptual, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“I shot common people and natural views, combined together in one scene, forging “funny” or “meaningful” pictures. An artist creates a piece of his or her reflection of the world, which could also be the illusion you hold in your heart.” (© Gao Peng, China, 3rd Place, Professional, Conceptual, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Wet thoughts is a project that studies the intimate relationship that develops between the body and the water. This thoughts raise from my confidence with water. I was born on an island: were it’s water establishing the borders, where the submerged body finds its dimension and substance, makes its lines clear. Plunging pushes us back to the centre of our intimate thoughts, the ones hiding from the familiar.” (© Carla Sutera Sardo, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Conceptual, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Central themes in Jeroen De Wandel’s work are time, family, alienation & astonishment, looked upon from different angles, which results in sometimes abstracted, tactile images, always connected with reality. They can switch identity in function of the place they get in a series/expo, where composition and interaction between the images is central. He tries to entice the spectator’s fantasy and makes him/her travel in his/her own mind and experiences. In that way, through the images, he tries to communicate from one’s mind to another and makes you think about the image, in this world where we are bombed with concrete images. Mostly starting out of personal experiences and interests (which can be an emotion, memories, old family related material, found magazines, science), sometimes from external factors, playing with reality and fantasy.” (© Jeroen De Wandel, Belgium, Shortlist, Professional, Conceptual, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

She has 70 male employees working for her. – “When people ask why I’m still single, I reply that I’m married to my job.” (© Tasneem Alsultan, Saudi Arabia, 1st Place, Professional, Contemporary Issues, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“I want to have an ordinary life In November 2016, Li Hang, an eleven-year-old boy from Harbin, arrived at Changchun weight loss centre determined to lose weight. He had been diagnosed with Prader-Willi Syndrome when he was 3 years old, and on admission, his weight had reached 155 kilograms. Prader-Willi Syndrome is a disease related to an abnormality in chromosome 15, and in around 70% of patients is inherited from their father. It occurs in 1 in 15000 people. Li Hang was being treated with traditional Chinese medicine every day, including massage, acupuncture, fire treatment and cupping therapy. Aside from medical techniques, Li Hang also did a great deal of exercise daily with the fitness instructor. From his initial fear, and throughout the process, Li Hang has been greatly tormented, but he is supported by his faith in doing what is necessary to live a normal person’s life.” (© Li Song, China, 2nd Place, Professional, Contemporary Issues, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Romania, Mamaia (Constanța), June 2016: a show during a pool party of the AW Summit, globally the largest event for the erotic chat industry’s players. The adult webcam industry is worth $1 billion annually, and is growing fast as the technology becomes better and cheaper. Collectively, the sites are estimated to be visited daily by some 5 percent of the web’s global users and the number of models performing live online shows from private apartments or from specialised studios is increasing worldwide. Romania, a country with one of the highest rates of youth unemployment in the EU, is now the undisputed world capital of studio-based cam operations, thanks to widespread wireless broadband access.” (© Lorenzo Maccotta, Italy, 3rd Place, Professional, Contemporary Issues, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Morton County Sheriffs – Riot police clear marchers from a secondary road outside a Dakota Access Pipeline (DAPL) worker camp using rubber bullets, pepper spray, tasers and arrests. In other incidents they’ve employed militarized vehicles, water canons, tear gas and have been accused of using percussion grenades.” (© Amber Bracken, Canada, Shortlist, Professional, Contemporary Issues, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“For more than 5 years, Khuzestan has been engulfed by dust storms. This phenomenon is an environmental crisis and poses numerous health concerns for the citizens of Khuzestan. The main center of production of dust is from inside Iran, but dusts that are blown over from neighboring country-Iraq- exacerbates the conditions. The road from Ahwaz to Mahshahr and the southern part of the Horolazim wetland are the main local regions from which the dust originates. The Southeastern region of Iraq is also a major contributing factor to the crisis.” (© Danial Khodaie, Shortlist, Professional, Contemporary Issues, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Kajol with a customer. She thinks she is 17 years but does not know her exact age. She was married with 9 years. Her aunt sold her to the Kandapara brothel. She has a 6 month son, Mehedi. Two weeks after the birth she was forced to have sex again with customers. Because of the baby her business is not so good.

The Kandapara brothel in the district of Tangail is the oldest and one of the largest in Bangladesh – it has existed for some 200 years. It was demolished in 2014 but has been re-established with the help of local NGOs. The brothel district is surrounded by a two-metre wall, and in the narrow streets within, there are food stalls, tea shops and street vendors. More than 700 sex workers live and work here with their children and their madams. Many of the women were either trafficked or born inside the brothel’s walls and in this way their livelihood is secure. Their customers are policemen, politicians, farmers, fishermen, factory workers and groups of teenage boys.” (© Sandra Hoyn, Germany, 1st Place, Professional, Daily Life, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“What happens, when 28 schoolchildren meet the controversial Danish therapist Carl-Mar Møller and are encouraged to play freely without rules? A sixth grade class from Øster Farimagsgade, a School in Copenhagen has done it twice. They went from the posh part of central Copenhagen to muddy wildness in Kokkedal, Denmark.” (© Asger Ladefoged, Denmark, Shortlist, Professional, Daily Life, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“The young are the future. But young people suffer higher rates in unemployment, injustice and violence than all other groups in their society. Especially deprived neighbourhoods of former industrial cities within the UK had huge problems with drug abuse, gang fights and teenage pregnancies at a disproportionately high level compared to the rest of Europe. Several government programms improved the situation within the last ten years and both offences committed by 16-17s and alcohol and drug taking of 16-24s dropped. But unemployment and the related lack of perspectives remain a big issue.” (© Toby Binder, Germany, Shortlist, Professional, Daily Life, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Syuzanna (9) sitting in a “shelter” made of old car rusty parts. Ten days ago Syuzanna’s father committed suicide, as people say, because of debt.

In 1988, a 7.0 Richter-scale earthquake struck northern Armenia. The quake killed at least 25,000 people in the region. Thousands more were maimed and hundreds of thousands left homeless. Gyumri, Armenia’s second largest city bore much of the damage. Large-scale war by the early 1990s, the collapse of the Soviet Union, an energy shortage, and a blockade that left landlocked Armenia with just two open borders contributed to exacerbating the region’s already prevalent social and economic problems.” (© Yulia Grigoryants, Armenia, Shortlist, Professional, Daily Life, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Kalaja e Dodes (Doda’s Castle) is a region in Albania including Albania’s highest mountain Mount Korabi and it’s surrounding 7 villages. This region still remains one of the most authentic regions in Albania and much of it’s lifestyle has remained unchanged during the last decades. Traditions are kept alive in this region, although it’s hard with modernization creeping in and a flux of people trading the mountain villages for a life in the capital or abroad.
But also in the past under the leadership of Doda they didn’t surrender easily to invaders. Doda came up with a ruse by offering 300 veiled woman to the army of the Ottomans as a gift to keep the enemy away. The women were actually 300 veiled warriors that slaughtered the ottoman army.” (© Frederik Buyckx, Belgium, Photographer of the Year, Professional, Landscape, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Earth Chinese people outside of China often struggle with their Chinese identity, with many having an idealised image of what the motherland is like, whether it’s from stories told by our relatives or from the romanticised views of the movies. The reality is often very different, especially given the accelerated speed at which China is changing. It is often this failure to meet our expectations and the vast, often unexpected difference in cultures that alienate us from feeling comfortable and secure with our roots.” (© Kurt Tong, UK, 2nd Place, Professional, Landscape, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

These pictures tell stories of the sea. They show nature, but nature seen through the spectacles of our cultural history. They show time moving on and the unchanging view of the seascape. The history of a landscape that has always been there becomes a “story and history” through the people who inhabit it, and their imprint.” (© Peter Franck, Germany, 3rd Place, Professional, Landscape, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“We – human beings have put this system in place, where stress is present everywhere in our lives. At the workplace, in our social life, … it’s basically omnipresent. Especially in a big and fast city as New York it can be very hard if you don’t have a counter balance to battle it and clear your mind of the negativity and anxiety that it brings. My answer to this has always been photography. When it’s just me and the wast american unknown. This gives me a meditative feeling of freedom – I like to think it somewhat unshackles me of the system we put in place.” (© Dino Kuznik, Slovenia, Shortlist, Professional, Landscape, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“God’s son was wearing grey, the colour of undyed wool, worn by peasants and the poor. Alberto Giacometti (1901-1966) never had the intention to paint only with grey, but he gave in: In the course of my work I have eliminated one colour after another and what has remained is grey, grey, grey! In 2014 the English newspaper The Guardian declared grey as the Colour of the Decade The world from dusk to dawn has been fascinating the human being from the very beginning.” (© Tom Jacobi, Germany, Shortlist, Professional, Landscape, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Arranging the delicate balance of the correlation of the dark and the light the author discovers the obvious monumentality and duality of the images of the perfect woman. Within the space of the picture, the light becomes flat and the dark becomes deeper, highlighting all conventions and details. With this approach, the geometry of light becomes not only a sculptural language but also correlates with the meaning of the subject.” (© George Mayer, Russia, 1st Place, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“China has 61.0255 million rural ‘left-behind’ children, whose parents have moved to the city and they are experiencing significant challenges. 80% of left-behind children who are bullied don’t know who to tell, whilst 90% who experience any difficulty at all do not tell their absent parents. Chinese courts have reported that crimes committed by minors have risen 13% per year on average over the past few years, and left-behind children account for about 70% of crime by minors, including 5% of all violent crime by minors. Focusing on the healthy growth of left-behind children is an important responsibility and challenge.” (© Ren shi Chen, China, 3rd Place, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Bekaa Valley, Lebanon. Kalila’s husband, Ahmed, told her to leave Syria as it was too dangerous for them to live there. Ahmed was forced to stay because of ‘security matters’. Kalila took her children and fled for Lebanon. Kalila has a message: “I want my voice heard. We need basics here: food, winter supplies and especially medicines for the children”. Ahmed is now reunited with the family and is now living with them in the Bekaa Valley.” (© Dario Mitidieri, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Laura Diaz, San Antonio: I was born in East L.A., I’m 48. I’m first generation of Mexican descendent, my mother is from Mexico City, my father from Durango. I’m actually working in Telecom Sales Training Manager. I am a conservative that thinks for herself and does not vote based on the party-line stance. I stared to be interested in politic when my father went on strike as a loyal member of the Teamsters union. I think I was 6 or 7. He dried cars at the local car wash to support his family. I could not understand why this happened when the union was supposed to work in the best interests of its members. I learned early on that ultimately any agreed upon “negotiation” resulting from weeks or months of choosing not to work would never make up for the wages lost from the time spent on the picket line. Unions have outlasted their usefulness and should be a thing of the past.
I decide to support Trump, because he is not a career politician and not funded by special interest groups. I appreciate his brutal candor and honesty – good, bad and the ugly. He may be extremely insensitive, but that does not render him a racist, bigot or misogynist. I like his experience in the private sector – with BOTH successes and failures. I don’t want Hillary to win. She is disingenuous, a career liar/politician and a panderer to any “cause of the moment” – who notably admires the late radical, Saul Alinsky and late US Senator, Robert Byrd, a former klansman and KKK recruiter. With Trump as a president I expect better National Security thru a stronger immigration vetting system that does not apologize for wanting to keep Islamic Terrorists or illegals with criminal pasts OUT of the USA. LOWER taxes. Trade Reform that benefits US-based businesses and the American blue and white collar worker. A reformed immigration policy that brings back a quota system – immigrating to the US is not a right, it is a privilege. And the return of American PRIDE.” (© Giulia Piermartiri & Edoardo Delille, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Marissa Desilets, West LA/Beverly Hills, California: My name is Marissa Desilets. I am 22 years old. I was born in Chicago, IL and raised in Palm Desert, CA. My grandparents were born in Mexico, and immigrated to the United States. My mom and dad were born in America. I am a graduate of Loyola Marymount University. My degrees are in Political Science and Economics. I was a Senator at Loyola Marymount, and an intern for LA Trump.
I am a Hispanic conservative, Republican woman.
I became interested in Politics my freshmen year of college, and really jump started my political passion around my junior year of college. I joined the Republican Club on campus.
I decided to support Donald J. Trump because I think America needs a better defense, and more jobs.
With Trump as President, I can expect strong leadership, and preservation of the Constitution of the United States of America.
Trump on the Mexican border: Our country needs to define its sovereign lines. We must close our borders. However, we welcome those who choose to enter our beautiful country legally.
Trump on security: We MUST secure our borders. As Trump has stated, “a nation without borders is not a nation.”
Trump on health care: I agree, we have to get rid of the Affordable care act, and create a health care program following free market principles.
With Hillary Clinton as President of the United States, I expect the poor to become poorer and our country to become divided states under the brand of “equality” with a neglect of “liberty.” I believe that liberals reckless domestic spending will bankrupt our future generations to come. I will not support a party, which desires are to expand the government, and take away civil liberties.
Trump’s Economic vision: Great. We must cut taxes for everyone and eliminate the death tax. Lowering taxes and reeling back regulations will result in greater economic success for all Americans because more jobs will equal more taxes payers.” (© Giulia Piermartiri & Edoardo Delille, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Architecturally similar “Khrushchevka” buildings are impossible to ignore in Russia. Planned as temporary housing for the Soviet people and built en masse under the reign of Khrushchev, the buildings define the image of Russian metropoles till now. The discrepancy between the collectivist intentions of their builders and the individuality and diversity of the people who inhabit them was the starting point for my project. Just as the facades are so similar, so different are the inhabitants and the little worlds they create for themselves.” (© Snezhana Von Buedingen, Russia, Shortlist, Professional, Portraiture, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

Fifty years now July and August they find themselves on time each year on the beach of Grado (Italy) to compete in bowling. Seventy fans from different regions of Northern Italy, never fails to reach grade in this period. From a simple challenge between a few fans, as it was in the early years, it has come to a large group of swimmers, even become friends, who compete in hard fought games of beach bowls.” (© Andrea Rossato, Italy, Shortlist, Professional, Sport, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)

“Focusing on the sport of No-Gi submission wrestling, the series focuses on the intricacies of this intense and technical sport. In what looks like a complicated knot of limbs and appendages is where brute force meets skill. I wanted to examine the moments and complexities of this sport by focusing on the points of contact between two rivals.” (© Mark Gong, USA, Shortlist, Professional, Sport, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards)
