The Sony World Photography Awards in Kuala Lumpur was launched on the 4th of February 2010 at the Petronas Galeri, KLCC. The exhibition will be held from the 4th of February till the 28th of March 2010. Entrance is free, but no photography is allowed in the exhibition hall.

The winners from each category (Commercial, sports, portraits, etc) are showcased in the exhibition. One particular photograph which caught my eye was Dustin Humphrey’s commercial photography for Insight. The photo shoot was done at Bali and features prominent surfers on the surface of the water with interesting subjects underwater.  Check out http://www.reelsessions.com/dustinhumphrey_insight.html for more information.

Vincent, ironically, is from Singapore, and he took the photograph in Malaysia, where no entries for the competition was made.
