A six-year-old girl from Milton Keynes has come first place in MK Gallery’s Young Photographer’s competition 2022 for her photo of a robin sat on a railway sleeper. The budding photographer beat more than 130 other people to the top prize including several people who were more than twice her age.

As part of her prize, Pippa and her classmates will be able to take part in an artists' workshop at MK Gallery as well as have a guided tour of all current exhibitions including MK Vivian Maier: Anthology – a collection of over 140 black and white photos from this mysterious photographer who became famous almost overnight.
