For People with Down's Syndrome : 2019 My Perspective

Congratulations to our 2019 My Perspective winners!


This year’s competition was a little bit different.

There were two winners…one picked by a group of judges and one picked by members of the public.

The Judge’s Choice winner was Oliver Hellowell with his picture ‘Blue-tit in the Snow’:

The People’s Choice winner was Carlos Biggemann with his picture ‘Autumn Leaves in Arrowtown’:

Each year we give a special award to photographers who live outside the UK. This award is called the Stephen Thomas Award and his mum and brother pick the winner from all the pictures that get entered from people overseas.

This year’s winner was by Amir Hossein Bagheri and is called Portrait 1:
