The British Journal of Photography and JCDecaux UK have unveiled the winners of Portrait of Britain Vol. 6 – a mesmerizing visual journey that encapsulates the diverse faces and narratives shaping contemporary Britain. This annual celebration of photography transforms JCDecaux UK's digital screens into a nationwide portrait gallery, showcasing the winning images of some of the nation’s most talented portrait photographers and reaching millions of people over the next month.

The collection features a kaleidoscope of stories, each photograph offering a unique perspective on the richness of Britain's traditions and communities. From Anna Nebauer's striking capture of Maya, an actress and model with Down Syndrome, who timelessly proves her differences don't hold her back to a busy portrait of Magaret Tyler surrounded by Royal memorabilia taken by Callum O'Keefe and Hassan Raja's My Grandfather's Two Hats featuring his grandfather wearing a traditional Indian Pakol hat.
