London Business School Photography Award


The LBS Photography Awards began as a student initiative that aims to inspire creative thinkers and businesses from around the globe to question their lasting impact on the world. The annual contest champions photography that interrogates commonly held perceptions of social, environmental and economic challenges and in turn intensifies the urgent conversations that are currently taking place on topics of global significance.

Candlestar was asked by London Business School to structure and manage the award, design and produce an exhibition of shortlisted artists, elevating the project and its audience.
