Sony World Photography Awards 2024

Providing a platform for photography students worldwide

2023 Theme: Home

A universal theme that can be interpreted in myriad ways. Show us through five to 10 images a story where the theme ‘Home’ is the focal point.

From capturing a place that you (or a subject) hold close to documenting quotidian life to what home symbolises to a group or community, show us in your own visual signature what home can signify. You might want to think about the theme beyond the physical sense: Home can unlock memories and trigger events from the past for many.

Your images can be taken on any device, shot in any style – be black & white or colour – and approached from whichever angle you feel is best. While creative responses are encouraged, sticking to the brief is key.
