Culture Minister Ed Vaizey to speak at Sony World Photo Awards

The fifth annual Sony World Photography Awards ceremony and gala dinner takes place at the Park Lane Hilton in London on Thursday 26 April. The evening is a celebration for the photography industry of the work of winning professional, amateur and young photographers from around the world.

A highlight of the ceremony is the announcement of the L’Iris d’Or, the Sony World Photography Awards Photographer of the Year.

The evening will include a speech by Minister for Culture, Communications and Creative Industries, Ed Vaizey, in support of the photography industry. The speech follows in the wake of last year's Hargreaves Review of Intellectual Property, this year's Consultation on Copyright, and comes before new copyright legislation expected next year that will directly affect photography.
