The Sony World Photography Awards is an annual competition that creates an international platform for emerging photographers to be discovered, and for professionals to showcase their new work. The exhibition presents photographs by the winners and finalists of the 2009 Sony World Photography Awards.  A broad variety of genres, including fashion, architecture, advertising, sport and music, from across the world are beining presented.
Also the work of winning and shortlisted German photographers Michael van den Bogaard, Peter Franck, Gordon Welters, Joel Micah Miller and Yvonne Seidel will be shown.
The Leading British curator Zelda Cheatle brought together work by the very best professional and amateur photographers worldwide. The winning photographs were chosen from over 60,000 images submitted from 139 countries.
Zelda Cheatle comments “Each of these pictures has a place, a purpose, show talent or skill. They have forethought, expertise or have humour, audacity, a concept, an issue or an opinion. This exhibition reflects the diversity of material, the range and depth of the response and the vibrant qualities that photography offers.”
The Global Tour Manager,Cecily Breese, states  “The Global Tour is a core component of the World Photography Awards and one of the main aspects of the prize received by the finalists. It offers true international exposure to the winning photographers enabling them to have their work viewed by a global audience. The unique aspect of the Global Tour exhibition is the variety and depth of the photographic genres that it displays, from fashion to photojournalism, from natural history to architecture. Across the world, the focus of the exhibition often shifts, depending on local culture and interests but the celebration of the still image is a constant worldwide.”
