This event was a little special for me. I recently left London Youth to finally commit to photography, and they have been incredibly supportive - they continue to hire me regularly to meet their photography needs! Additionally, when working at London Youth, having an awards ceremony was something that was on the plans, so it’s awesome seeing it finally happen!
The occasion was a great moment to recognise the young people and youth workers that make the London Youth network so amazing. A member club, Barking and Dagenham Youth Dance, gave a brilliant performance during the awards, which gave the event a lift. It heartwarming to be part of the inaugural London Youth Awards!
For those new to London Youth, they are a “network of diverse community youth organisations serving young people of all backgrounds right across the capital.”
Below is the visual story of the event.
