A Morden woman has been shortlisted as one of the final 20 candidates from the UK in a community-led photography project and has a chance to win £10,000 to donate to a cause or movement of their choice.

Elizabeth Presland has been shortlisted in the project developed by global smartphone manufacturer Huawei called The Reveal the Real You initiative after submitting a collection of images.

The images raised awareness of May Project Gardens, a community program to help young adults and children engaged with their local community.

Elizabeth said: “The reason I became a photographer was to try and raise awareness of issues in society and work out positive solutions. Getting the opportunity to be able to highlight and document the work of a community project close to my heart for Dazed and Huawei has been a very exciting and meaningful experience.”

Over the last month, talented young people from the country have been using the Huawei P10 smartphone to document communities, causes and ideologies that they feel passionately about.

Three winners will get £10,000 each to donate to the charity of their choice.

Elizabeth is hoping to be awarded the bursary in order to support the May Project Gardens, helping them to continue their goal of creating safe spaces in the community and making sustainable living accessible and affordable.

Andrew Garrihy, CMO for Huawei Europe said: “We are delighted our device has helped give these talented young people the chance to shine a light on the issues they care about.”
