The Sony World Photography Awards is the largest photo competition of it’s kind and an important platform to show work to a very wide audience. It was rewarding to have these photographs on the short list and a wonderful surprise to be honored with the L’Iris d’Or at the awards ceremony in London. I would encourage both photography enthusiasts and professionals to enter this contest – I sure will.John Moore, L'iris d'Or / Photographer of the year 2015
