An amateur photographer from Brazil has bagged tickets to the FIFA World Cup as winner of the Sony World Photography Awards Campaign category.
Guilherme Junior entered a shot of supporters of a Rio de Janeiro soccer team in a contest that challenged amateur photographers to capture the ?magic and passion? of football from a fan?s perspective.
?This year?s winning image really conveys the true spirit and camaraderie of the cultural phenomenon that is football,? said Sony Europe?s director of Brand Communications James Kennedy.
Sports photographer Delly Carr, who chaired the judging panel, said: ?This female fan epitomises football?s energy and passion. She is singled out from the rest of the crowd through her over-the-top celebratory jump, and therefore as one with the team.?
