All three of the Polish contenders have all been nominated in the Open competition.
Radosław Goździelewski’s image depicts a section of an abandoned Soviet military base in the south-western Polish town of Legnica, with broken windows, tiles coming off the walls and traces of ripped off radiators.
The photo by Filip Wolak, an artist who combines a passion for photography with that for flying, is entitled “Snowy Central Park at 10,000 Feet“. Both were shortlisted in the ‘Architecture’ category.
The third photo, by Kamil Wojtyła, features three slackliners balancing above a street during a circus festival in Lublin, eastern Poland. It is shortlisted in the ‘Arts and Culture’ category.
The award-presentation ceremony will be held at London’s Somerset House on 21 April, after which all shortlisted images will remain on display there until 8 May.
Over 230,000 photos from 186 countries were entered into the Professional, Open and Youth competitions of this year’s contest for Sony World Photography Awards. (mk/nh)
