There are multiple categories for photos such as athletes, cars, travel, lifestyle, and more. Winners will be announced at a later date and a celebration will take place across several cities in Europe including London, Paris, Amsterdam, and more.

The World Sports Photography Awards jurors include representatives from newspapers, magazines, online news sources, broadcasters, and photojournalism companies. The jury is made up of photographers who have worked on national or international sporting events throughout the year. They select photos that they feel demonstrate their work as a photographer and show how their work can be used to tell a story about world sport.
The World Sports Photography Awards celebrate excellence in world sports photography and recognize photographic images that show the power of sport to inspire people worldwide. Winners will be announced at a ceremony in London on 4th November 2022.
