The World Photography Festival and Sony World Photography Awards are coming to London





The World Photography Festival and Sony World Photography Awards are coming to London!
April 26 - May 1



Share your work, meet other photographers, learn new skills and get involved! Find inspiration and get your creative juices flowing during our week-long programme of events at Somerset House, and get ready to be dazzled by the vast photographic talent presented at the Sony World Photography Awards 2011 Gala Ceremony.

Whatever your photographic taste, the World Photography Festival, along with our partners including Sony, iStockphoto and blurb, will be sure to cater to it through a wide range of exhibitions, workshops, screenings and much more. If you're looking to grow as a photographer, improve your skills or maybe you're seeking a new photographic direction; register for Portfolio Reviews, peer-to-peer sessions, or drop by to visit our resident critic for some constructive advice.

At the centre of this activity, you will find the Photographers Lounge, where you can network and socialise with fellow photographers and industry folk. Ongoing Carousel Slide Slam sessions will be the highlight of the lounge whilst coffee, snacks, cold wine and beer, is served at Tom’s cafĂ© and bar.
