Theme of 2017 award announced

Entitled The Everyday Heroine, our 2017 photography award put the spotlight on the unsung heroines who make the everyday possible!


This Award aimed to celebrate the lives of ordinary women who perform extraordinary work. Mothers, grandmothers, the nurse from your village, the teacher from your school, the social care worker,  the lollipop lady  -  whoever and wherever they may be.  



Let us not forget the many women who work in the emergency and military services  ~ the Metropolitan, City and British Transport Police Service serving London so gallantly, the women of the Emergency service provider and, of course, the NHS, nurses and doctors.


So, who will be your heroine?
