For People with Down's Syndrome : My Perspective 2020

Do you like taking photographs?

Why not enter this year’s

My Perspective competition?

We want to see the world through your eyes!

Our judges will pick twenty-five photographs from all the entries.

All the shortlisted photographers and their families will be invited to a special celebration event this summer.

It’s the tenth time we’ve run this competition so it’s going to be a very special occasion!

This year there will be three winners:

  • One winner will be picked by our team of judges. They’ll be the Judge’s Choice winner.
  • One winner will be picked by members of the public. They’ll be the People’s Choice winner.
  • One photographer who doesn’t come from the UK will be chosen to be the Stephen Thomas Award winner.

We want to see lots of different photos so when you enter, you will be asked to say what sort of photo you are entering.

Here are the categories you can choose from:


Landscape photographs are of the world around you. A Landscape photograph could be of the countryside or a town or city, the sky or the sea, woods or fields, trees or flowers.

Here are some Landscape photographs from last year’s competition:


A Portrait photograph is a picture of a person. It could be a picture of you (a “selfie”) or a picture of friends or family.

Here are some Portrait photographs from last year’s competition:


An Abstract photograph can be of anything you like…as long as you think it looks good.

Here are some Abstract photographs from last year’s competition:


An Animal photograph is a picture of any animal you might see while you are out and about, at home, on holiday or having a day out.
