If you missed out on entering the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards, then you may be interested in this little piece of news. Sony has a monthly competition and you don’t need to be an expert to enter. Sony welcome all photographers, whether it’s the first photo you’ve ever taken or you’re already a master. This month the theme is ‘Still Life’, a competition that challenges you to make pictures rather than simply take them. Lucky winners can walk away with a Cyber-shot RX100 IV, an Action Cam AS200 or a Hi Res Walkman® NW-A20. Entry is simple, just visit the website.
