2015 Sony World Photography Awards: Beautiful wildlife and landscape images

With just over one month remaining for photographers to enter the 2015 Sony World Photography Awards, the World Photography Organisation reveals a selection of submissions to the 2015 Open competition.

2015SonyWPA01Orangutan in The Rain by Andrew Suryono, Indonesia, Nature and Wildlife Category, Open Competition: “I was taking pictures of some orangutans in Bali and then it started to rain. Just before I put my camera away, I saw this orangutan took a banana leaf and put it on top on his head to protect himself from the rain. I immediately used my DSLR and telephoto lens to preserve this magic moment.” — Andrew Suryono, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA02Vigorous Touch of the Morning by Jubair Bin Iqbal, Bangladesh, People Category, Open Competition: “A monk walks a mango garden on a foggy winter morning in Dinajpur.” — Jubair Bin Iqbal, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA03Dinner by Kyle Breckenridge, Canada, Nature and Wildlife Category, Open Competition: “The mother and the cub are Spirit Bears or Kermode bears – a subspecies of the North American black bear living in the central and northern coastal regions of British Colombia, Canada. These bears are rarer than pandas in the wild.” — Kyle Breckenridge, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA04Desert Dawn by Gareth Lowndes, New Zealand, Travel Category, Open Competition: ” About 30 minutes after sunrise a hot air balloon is captured in the distance beginning its descent to land in a camel farm. The image was shot while floating over the dunes in a chase balloon.” — Gareth Lowndes, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA05In a Crowd of King Penguins by Lisa Vaz, Portugal, Nature and Wildlife Category, Open Competition: “King penguins live in large colonies in South Georgia, a speck of an island in the South Atlantic Ocean and just below the Antarctic Convergence. They are very beautiful, graceful and yet almost comical birds and a true delight to observe.” — Lisa Vaz, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA06Morning Hour by Georg May, Germany, Nature and Wildlife Category, Open Competition: “A white fallow deer standing in the morning mist an early morning in Eifel National Park, Germany. One hardly dares to move – can only watch, fascinated.” — Georg May, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards

2015SonyWPA07Timeless Affection by Arief Siswandhono, Indonesia, People Category, Open Competition: “Fina is the younger of my two daughters. She used to be scared of cats, which was the reason why we decided to adopt two kittens. We wanted Fina to learn how to live with cats, how to hold them, how to care for them and how to treat them as family members to help her overcome her fear. Now we can proudly say she did. Day by day, seven months passed by and today Fiona and the cats are best friends, and love and care for each other. In this picture I wanted to show how gracefully they’re together in a frame with Leon, one of her babies.” — Arief Siswandhono, 2015 Sony World Photography Awards
