The best architecture photography in the world

Images from the professional and amateur winners of the Sony World Photography Awards

The professional and amateur winners of the Sony World Photography Awards were announced this week.

In the architecture category, professional photographer Michael van den Bogaard from Germany won first place for his images of Shanghai. Joel Micah Miller, also from Germany, took second place with images of national monuments, including the National WWII Memorial in Washington and the German Chancellery. Daichi Ano’s images of Japan took third place. British-born David Watts was the amateur winner with ‘Persepolis’.

The awards cover 44 photographers from 22 countries, in categories ranging from architecture and landscapes to current affairs and sport. Their work will be exhibited at an awards ceremony in Cannes in mid-April, and one professional will receive the coveted L’Iris D’Or for Sony World Photography Awards Photographer of the Year.
