Third-year photography student, Isabel Salmon, had never even entered a competition before winning the Creative category at the 2022 Sony World Photo Awards. Her incredibly personal project explored how labyrinthitis and menopause have affected her mother's health, and how often invisible illnesses are overlooked. 

During her time at the University of the West of England (UWE) in Bristol, England, Isabel has worked with techniques incorporating sound, text and moving images in her work as a way of exploring different topics. Although she has never won a competition, she has had her work exhibited in one of Bristol’s most prestigious art spaces, The Arnolfini – and now at Somerset House, London.
