Today the World Photography Organisation announces that Scarlet Evans, a student at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design is a finalist in the Student Focus competition of the Sony World Photography Awards.

It provides a professional network of contacts and offers a variety of competitions, tutorials and opportunities to help talented emerging photographers to turn professional.  Many of previous finalists of the Student Focus competition are now working regularly in the photography industry.

Scarlett Evans, aged 22 from Spitalfields, London is in her third year of BA Graphic Design at Central Saint Martins, London. She secured this place as one of the ten finalists from around the world with an image titled “#ThenewNewTestament”.  The image was shot in response to a brief asking for a single image showing “Tomorrow’s News”.

Talking about the winning photograph Evans comments: “I took the winning image outside a church in Nashville, Tennessee, whilst travelling the South last spring. It seemed like such an incongruous juxtaposition of old and new faiths. The irony of it just made me laugh.”

Scarlet is one of ten finalists chosen from across the world who will each now compete for the Student Focus Photographer of the Year title and a 35,000 Euro prize.

All finalists, including Scarlet, will be brought to London on 30 April to attend the Sony World Photography Awards gala ceremony and she will discover who is the overall winner of the Student Focus competition.

Scarlet will also have her work shown at Somerset House, London from 1-18 May as part of the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition and published in the 2014 edition of the Sony World Photography Awards book.

For more information, take a look at the Student Focus section of the Sony WPO website.

Have to concurr with MrDennis ... This image leaves me cold, uninspired, blank and not amused by any juxtaposition or incongruous situation whatsoever. Maybe it should reside in a slightly amusing local news sideline covering religion on a very slow news day but as an example of photographic excellence of any kind it gives me absolutely nothing. It demonstrates no evidence of any photographic excellence, originality, ingenuity, inventiveness or anything else whatsoever and indeed is pretty much the same point and shoot fodder anyone owning a camera of any kind would take when encountering a sign we find amusing and sending it to our local newspaper or friends on facebook although lacking in any real amusement or interest.

A lucky find, but hardly award-winning.

I think it's an attempt to emulate Stephen Shore who is attributed with starting the 'deadpan' genre in the 1960's. Some of his pics can be seen here: http://imagesfound.blogspot.co.uk/2011/01/stephen-shore.html

Levi Wedel's blog click on the link top left on the page above is a superb photographic archive.

It fulfilled the brief Smile
I'd love to see the ones that didn't make it Smile
Anyways, congratulations to Scarlett - she must be well chuffed to have won.

I have to say that this photo does nothing for me, other than say 'holiday snap'. There's no real composition to it, the colours are very flat and dull & there's just nothing that grabs or holds the attention.
