British Red Cross Photography Competition

Description: A Photography Competition for Young People aged 25 and Under. The theme of the competition this year is ‘making a difference matters’ but this can be interpreted in any way, for example a picture of a friend or family member who has helped you through a tough time, your local community centre that you feel really makes a difference to the local community, or the cup of coffee that you couldn't start the day without. The competition is open to anyone under the age of 26, with there being two category winners; under and over 18s. The competition is in partnership with Canon, with them providing a prize to the winner which is presented to them at the awards ceremony at the palace of Westminster. As well as this, the winning picture will be printed and promoted online. The competition is run alongside our Humanitarian Awards for Children and Young People; however is its own separate competition with separate entries and winners. Entries should be submitted to youngphotocomp@redcross.org.uk OR pbromley@redcross.org.uk
