The 2022 Sony Alpha Awards results have been announced, with Sydney freelance photographer Caitlin Eadie winning the grand prize for her photo, Rainfall in Limbo.
Eadie, an aspiring young portrait photographer, shot the black-and-white image on a Alpha 7 III with a 55mm f1.8 z lens. The picture was runner-up in the Portrait category, and World Photography Organisation CEO, Scott Gray, selected it from the pool of finalists as the grand prize winner. Eadie wins over $10K worth of Sony gear.
The Sony Alpha Awards consists of 12 categories and is open to Australian and New Zealand photographers who exclusively use Sony cameras and lenses. As well as being a photo contest to celebrate local talent, the Alpha Awards serves as a brilliant marketing exercise. Each year the contest curates a selection of images to demonstrate what Sony products can do in the hands of a talented photographer.
‘The imagery we have enjoyed over the past seven years through the Alpha Awards has never failed to impress,’ said head of Sony Digital Imaging ANZ, Jun Yoon. ‘It is always a delight to get a glimpse into the creative minds of Alpha shooters and explore their curiosity of the world through the power of their photos.’
Here are the 12 category winners.
