How did you spend your time as a teenager? Playing video games? Sport? Maybe mixing it up with friends at parties? Well, be prepared to feel like you wasted your youth! These photos were all taken by teenagers. All of them. They’re from the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards and to take part in the ‘youth’ category, you must be 19 years or younger – and by the looks of it, pretty damn talented!

These are just some of the snaps we’ve seen. The winners will all be revealed in April at the 2014 Sony World Photography Awards Gala.
