In September 2014, the IOE Confucius Institute launched the Young Photographers’ Competition, to coincide with National Confucius Institute Day. Since its launch we have seen some excellent photography from students across the world. The aim of the competition is to dispel the cultural stereotypes of China through photography and show the vast country through the eyes of young people. Each year we include a home-based category which explores China’s relationship with the United Kingdom. The Young Photographers Competition is generously supported by the Chinese Embassy in London.

In both runs, the exhibition will be open from 10:00-18:00 for 7 days a week, and admission is free for all.
