Among the finalists within the Documentary Projects classification is British photographer Tariq Zaidi, who traveled to the capital of Somalia, Mogadishu, to photograph the chaotic scenes on the Hamar Weyne fish market in the center of the town. Zaidi says it truly is the following that lots of of fishermen promote their catch, together with yellowfin tuna, swordfish, marlin, longtail tuna, bonito, skipjack tuna and Spanish mackerel. “Despite the challenges posed by the ongoing civil war and a lack of investment in the sector,” says Zaidi, “the market remains a key source of employment and economic activity.”

The total winners within the Open, Professional, Student and Youth competitions will probably be introduced on April thirteenth, at the same time the Sony World Photography Awards Exhibition will run from April 14th to May 1st at Somerset House in London, UK.
