Join influential leaders from business and the arts as they discuss the power of photography to shape business practices and encourage positive social change, before viewing this year’s eight shortlisted award entries at a special drinks reception.

The Awards aim to use visual storytelling to strengthen and influence the urgent conversations that are currently taking place on topics of global significance.
