2014 Open Shortlist

SWPA Open Shortlist Logo

The Open competition saw 65,512 entries this year, from across 166 countries.  Judged by WPO, Sony and Nigel Atherton, Group Editor, IPC Photo, the Open competition highlights the true enthusiasts and lovers of photography.

The competition is designed so as to provide committed amateur and enthusiast photographers with the chance to have their work awarded as well as exhibited internationally, providing critical feedback of their work and the chance to be discovered.

A single, brilliant snapshot is all it takes to capture the attention of our jury. Technical ability and composition also win points of course, though above all, they must have that wow factor and stand alone.
