Photography Exhibition at China Exchange


Our Annual Young Photographers’ Competition aims to encourage young people to share their photos and experiences of China with the world. Over the last three years, the competition photos have been exhibited at UCL Institute of Education, and the South Bank Centre as part of the China Changing Festival. We are very excited to announce that this year, the winning photos will be put on display at China Exchange. China Exchange was created by Sir David Tang who had the vision for a dynamic centre promoting excellence in Chinatown. China Exchange serves as a home for ideas, discussion, and creative expression that stimulate greater understanding of and curiosity about China’s impact on the world.
