“One of the great joys of my career has been the Terry O’Neill Award. In just a few years it has encouraged thousands of young photographers and every year I get to assemble of panel of judges who get to see the work of the young people who will become the stars of tomorrow. It is exhilarating to sift through thousands of entries and see the world through their eyes – and to be surprised, because there are images out there that add new dimensions to the narrative of life and refresh our jaded palates.” Terry O’Neill.
