The London-based World Photography Organisation recently announced the final shortlists for the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards. The prestigious annual awards contest, judged in six different categories (like Professional, Open, Youth, etc), saw more than 122,000 entries from 170 countries this year -- the highest number of entries to date. The winners are scheduled to be announced in March and April, 2013.

In this third part of a series, we present some of the final shortlists in the 2013 Sony World Photography Awards in the 'Youth' category. The entries from the young shutterbugs were further categorised into 'Culture', 'Environment' and 'Portraiture' shortlists.

The photographer says: "I took this photo on the road to Ambleside from Keswick (in England), it's rare you'll get any of the lakes or waters this still through the day. The Sun was directly above the fell these trees are on, which created this strong golden touch fringing all the woodland".

Mountains are a vital part of the Norwegian culture. These images show some of the mountains in Jotunheimen, one of the largest mountain ranges in Norway.

"With these images I want to shed light on the beauty and the grandness of nature, but also how fragile it is. The glaciers melt more and more every year. If we don't raise attention to this problem, we might end up destroying the very phenomena that created the wonderful mountains we love so much," the photographer says.

The photographer says: "At first on this capture I wanted to keep the painter, but artists are so strange that they always want to be "offstage"; When I protested, the painter answered me, "My work can give you more than my face"; I think there is a sense in his words".

The photographer says: When I visited the London Paralympic Games in the summer of 2012, I set out to capture the true spirit and energy of the whole event. To me, the Games were a powerful, diverse and exciting event which brought together the people of London, of the world.

By using the 170 degree wide-angle lens on the GoPro, I managed to capture an image that showed the uniting of people in a powerful light, brought together by the power of sport.

The photographer says, "During my time in New Zealand (late 2010 to early 2011) I had the chance to attend one of their immersive Maori cultural tours. I was fascinated by how strong and alive their cultural identity was. It pushed me to reflect on our own country (Australia). I know it has been said for years, that we should be paying more respect to our own indigenous people, yet too often their culture seems to be overlooked. Perhaps we should take a note out of NZ's book".

The photographer says, "Carla and Xenia are good friends of mine. We adore to spend hours trying and testing the different lights and corners that my house and surroundings offer. We pursue an idea. When everything goes towards the same direction, the idea becomes real. That is what I catch, an idea made visual".

The photographer says, "The coexistence of people and nature is a topic that I have seen many times during my travels. Especially with the huge environmental issues that we have at the moment, it is important to capture what we do to nature and how people are able to live with nature, in a way that most people have forgotten, like the people I've met in Indonesia that live next to an active volcano. These experiences are important for me to share".
