The 2009 SONY PROFOTO AWARDS will be a showcase of the best images of Southern Africa’s renowned and undiscovered professional photographers and photography students.
Both professional photographers practising in Southern Africa and photography students can enter images until 31 January 2010. The Southern African region includes South Africa, Botswana, Namibia, Lesotho, Swaziland, Zimbabwe and Mozambique. For the 2009 awards, the student competition has been expanded to include both full time students from accredited photographic institutions as well as part time photographic students.
From architecture to portraiture and fine art to photo-journalism, the SONY PROFOTO AWARDS is the benchmark of professional excellence that the PPSA aspire to achieve.
