Vision: The Mental Health UK Photo Competition

What have you seen?

The Mental Health UK Photo Competition is an opportunity for you to share the images and moments that mean something to you.

Last year we launched the Mental Health UK Photo Competition. We gave it a theme and called it My 2020 Photo, and asked you to capture an image that reflected your unique experience in the turbulent year that was 2020. We were blown away by the amazing collection of photos!

This year the competition is back, with a new name:

Vision: The Mental Health UK Photo Competition

Show us a vision of your life now.

We would like to extend a big thank you to the very generous providers of this year’s prizes:

On the judging panel this year are:

  • Marc Newton, Director of The School of Photography
  • Annie McGrath, comedian and curator of “Art is the Best Medicine,” an exhibition that showcased artwork from some of Britain’s top comedians, to raise money for Mental Health UK.

“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.”

– Ralph Hattersley

The positive impact the group has had on me is huge. I don’t feel so isolated any more. If the support had not been available I would still be facing depression and loneliness, unable to look after myself and over-thinking things.

Raise money and have fun!

Read what some of our fundraisers have to say.

"I enjoyed seeing my fundraising increase on a weekly basis, the events that I organised pushed me out of my comfort zone, I talked to people about Mental Health in a way that I would never have done otherwise."

Louise Greenwood,
Lloyds Banking Group

"I was totally elated when I crossed the line and so glad I’d given it a go!"

Helen Taylor

"Mental Health UK was a friendly partner to have. I received lots of motivational encouragement via email which maybe doesn’t sound like much but knowing people are rooting for you really helps"

Richard Gray
