The British Journal of Photography has just announced the 2021 Portrait of Britain winners. The award gives photographers the opportunity to capture the many faces of modern Britain and shine a light on the diverse, vibrant and resilient people that make up our nation. 

Despite the struggle Britain has faced over the last two years, there have been so many moments for people to show kindness and compassion. People have pulled together, gone above and beyond to help and support each other and in doing so have reminded each other of how important it is to show strength in a community.
