The Sony World Photography Awards 2012 is now accepting entries from professional and novice photographers worldwide. Deadline for entries will be on January 4, 2010. Top prize is $25,000.

The 2012 edition of the awards includes a Professional competition, which invites entries from the world’s leading photographers and “serious enthusiasts,” and an open competition for everyone with an interest in photography.

Each competition has been refreshed with new categories for 2012. A “Nature & Wildlife” category has been introduced to the Professional competition and three new categories in the Open competition include “Enhanced”, “Split Second” and “Low- light.”

Organizers said a new Youth competition has been launched for younger photographers under 20 years of age and the Student Focus competition will continue to support and connect the next generation of photography pros. The Moving Image Awards have been expanded to include six categories following the great success of the inaugural Moving Image Award in 2011.
