THE World Photography Organization and Sony Philippines named on Thursday, February 27, North Gevero as the Philippines' National Award winner for the Sony World Photography Awards 2020.

The National Awards program is an initiative set up by the World Photography Organization and Sony to support local photographic communities across 63 countries from around the world.

The program awards one photographer from each nation for a standalone image and presents them with the opportunity to showcase their work to a global audience at the renowned Sony World Photography Awards 2020 exhibition at Somerset House, London from April 17 to May 4.

Gevero was anonymously selected by judges for the photograph Master, submitted for the Portraiture category of the Open competition.

To share more details about the winning shot, Gevero said, "This shot is a stitch panorama character portrait of a friend."

Over 345,000 images were submitted to the Sony World Photography Awards 2020 competition and over 190,000 entered the Open competition for Portraiture -- the highest number of entries to date.

As Philippines' National Award winner, Gevero will receive SonyA7R IV and SEL2470GM. (PR)
