2017 was a tough year, but it showed us that Londoners will not ever submit to hatred, terror, sexual harassment and bigotry. We wanted to champion that perspective by promoting unity, displaying positivity, showcasing love and celebrating diversity.
We launched the 'Love in London' photography competition to highlight it all, and to support photography charity PhotoVoice. They work all over the world, using photography to deliver positive social change.
We asked Londoners to submit their best photos depicting love in the capital.

Acclaimed photographers Kim Leuenberger, Paul Floyd Blake and Jackie King judged entries across the 6 categories. The winning photo series featured on digital signs across London tube stations and bus stops – it was an opportunity to display optimism and positivity for millions to see on their daily commute.
There was an outpouring of support for the campaign, with many London companies — including the acclaimed photographic printer Metro Imaging providing prizes; everything from camera equipment to gallery space. As well as J C Decaux and 8 Outdoor who both supplied the advertising space which made the promotion possible.
