Carry Together: “The boar is the greatest harvest in hunting, guns only hunted large animals, small animals with blowpipe hunting. That day, all the tribes will be celebrated because of the boar.” This picture, which was awarded third place (Malaysia), was taken by Edwin Ong Wee Kee.

Light from Above: Peter Svoboda took top prize for Slovakia. Svoboda says his shot was taken “in September 2016 in Santa Maddalena, Dolomites, Italy. Beautiful light and humidity stood behind the nice play of light and shadows that morning. I was waiting as the small church was illuminated by the very first rays of sun.” Copyright: © Peter Svoboda, Slovakia, 1st Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
The Wanderer: A stroll on a foggy night can be rewarding. In this case, Hendrik Mändla went home with third place in the National Awards (Estonia). Copyright: © Hendrik Mändla, Estonia, 3rd Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards

Maasai Morning Ritual: “In Magadi, which is in the southern part of Kenya’s Great Rift Valley, Maasai Morans sometimes wake up in the morning to a cold beer before heading out to tend their cows near the lake. This is due to the long distance they must sometimes travel from where they live to where grass and water is. It’s a sort of early “pick-me-up” to get the day rolling,” says Joseph Were, who came third in the National Awards (Kenya).

Tabular Iceberg: Josselin Cornou came first in the National Awards (France) with this picture taken during an expedition to the Antarctic Peninsula. Cornou says, “On our way to the 66th parallel south, our boat was navigating in silence through 30 meters (100 feet) high tabular icebergs that were once part of the Larsen Ice Shelf. Those mesmerizing structures were displaying subzero icy corridors, forming a highly photogenic gargantuan maze.” Copyright: © Josselin Cornou, France, 1st Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
Fisherman: Khalid Alsabat of Saudi Arabia photographed this scene at sunrise when he was staying in Yangzhou, China. “The elderly Chinese fisherman in his traditional clothes pushed his bamboo boat into the water, carrying with him a fishing net, a light, and two cormorants,” Alsabat says.

Wanaka Tree: Linda Cutche of New Zealand tasked herself with a challenge to frame the famous tree in Lake Wanaka in a unique way. “Although this scene had been photographed by many, I was artistically challenged to take my own version. The idea was to go on an early morning venture and get a good spot before the sun rose, capturing the glory of an amazing sunrise showering the tree in a golden light.” Copyright: © Linda Cutche, New Zealand, 3rd Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
Howrah Bridge: This picture of a winter morning scene under Howrah Bridge in Kolkata, India, was selected as the champion shot in the National Awards (Bangladesh). Copyright: © Mohammad Amir Hamja, Bangladesh, 1st Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards

Character: “This image was captured off the coast of the island chain of Vava’u, Kingdom of Tonga,” says Matt Lance Draper, who took third place in the New Zealand category. “Every year humpback whales migrate thousands of kilometers from the cold oceans in the south to the warm breeding waters in the tropical islands on the South Pacific.” Copyright: © Matt Lance Draper, New Zealand, 2nd Place, National Awards, 2017 Sony World Photography Awards
Synced: Nadia Aly of the United States took this photo of Gentoo penguins, hunting in the icy cool waters of Antarctica. It was the third best shot taken by an American photographer this year. “It’s incredibly interesting to see how synchronized they are with their movements and breaths, as they glide throughout the ocean,” says Aly.
