Stunning Winning Photo Entries from International Photography Competition

Inspire by CanvasPop is a weekly blog series showcasing world-class décor ideas, products, art, or photography. Check back on Wednesdays for more inspiration!

The World Photography Organisation announced the open category winners for the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards yesterday, and we’re completely blown away by their choices. The competition received 55,000 international entries, and the winning photos were narrowed down to just 10. Some of the 10 winning categories included arts and culture, environment, architecture, low light, and people.

The images are international in theme — ranging from an epic looking fire dragon dance in China, to a gorgeous shot of the Milky Way in Kazakstan. One thing they all have in common, is their capabilities to inspire and take our breath away! What do you think of the winning entries for this year’s competition? We’d love to hear your feedback.

If you have some remarkable photos of your own, don’t forget to check out our canvas prints!
