The winners of Female in Focus 2022 from British Journal Photography and 1854 have just been announced. Now in its fourth year, the award highlights the work of exceptional female photographers all over the world and this year's submissions were based on the concept of home. 

Female in Focus is “a celebration of women in photography” but it also aims to address the issues of gender inequality in the photography community. Research shows that although 70-80% of photography students are women they only account for 13-15% of professional photographers and this is something Female in Focus hopes to change.
