The Sony World Photography Awards is the world’s largest photography competition, and the National Awards is a global program open to photographers of all abilities. It aims to find the best single photograph taken by a local photographer in 66 countries.

National Award winners were announced this week, and photographer Argus Paul Estabrook’s photo “Read All About It” was deemed the winner of the United States National Award. Overall winners of the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards will be announced on April 20.

From the World Photography Organization: “Currently based in Seoul, South Korea, Estabrook is a 39-year old emerging photographer with an MFA in Studio Arts. As a Korean-American who grew up in rural Virginia, he has a unique perspective of Korean identity and its relationship to both global and regional communities. His street photography seeks out and investigates the unseen, unacknowledged citizens of Seoul.”

Second place for the U.S. National Awards went to photographer Angee Manns for the image “Haunted,” and third place was awarded to Nadia Aly for the image “Synced.” Check out all the winners from around the globe here.
