Primrose Hill photographer encourages locals to enter a photo competition

Primrose Hill’s Carol Allen-Storey, a UNICEF Ambassador for photography, is encouraging local photographers – both amateur and established – to enter the Anna Steinhouse Photography Award. The award is looking for the most innovative and exciting images which capture daily life during and beyond lockdown. The theme is “My New World”, and it reflects on the challenges, differences, aspirations, bravery, kindness, love, anger, grief, frustration and humour, which have coloured our experiences of lockdown and post-lockdown life.

The winning image will be displayed for a week in the prestigious Atlas Gallery in Mayfair, London, and the winner will receive a cash prize of £1,000, a framed print of their work and a mentoring and portfolio review session with a high-profile professional photographer. Ten runner-up images will also be selected for display in an online exhibition.

The prize is free to enter for photographers of all levels, from amateur to professional.

How to enter

To participate, simply upload your image to Instagram, follow and tag @anna.steinhouse to your image and add the hashtags #AnnaSteinhouseAward and #AS_MyNewWorld.

Upload your photographs before 19 August. The winner and runners up will be announced on 24 August. 

About the award

The award is founded by artist, photography enthusiast and Patron of the Arts, Anna Steinhouse who commented: “During the last six months, many people’s lives have been put on hold – some have endured great hardship and loss, while others have had to reinvent themselves in order to thrive. We have all lived and experienced lockdown in different ways, but all of us are having to adapt to what is widely accepted as a new world. I wanted to help support photographers through these difficult times by launching a prize that visually documents these unprecedented times, while also celebrating the medium of photography and its ability to accurately capture this momentous part of our collective history. I am delighted to have Carol’s support on the prize and I’m looking forward to seeing how photographers respond to the theme.”
