My favourite capture of 2022
This competition asked photographers to submit their favourite photo from their own captures from 2022. Dr Natasha Hirst, FRSA, Vice-President of National Union of Journalists (NUJ) and Chair of the Photographer's Council of the NUJ was requested to judge the competition.
"These images are all important because they show life inside the camp from the point of view of people who live there. Minoritised groups sharing stories from their own perspective exposes aspects of life that would otherwise remain unseen or be misrepresented from the outside. It's important to empower people to document their lives and have control of their own narratives. "
