Following a sell out show in 2015, one of the world’s largest photography exhibition returns to London’s Somerset House this spring.

The Sony World Photography Awards exhibition will run from 22 April to 8 May, giving photography lovers the chance to see a selection of the jaw-dropping 230,103 images that were entered into this year's awards. That record-breaking amount brings the total of entries since the Sony World Photography Awards launch in 2008 to over a million.

Check out our gallery to view some of our favourite images from this year. Like what you see? Tickets cost from £6.50 and can be purchased on the 2016 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition website.
