how are you feeling?
#MyPhotoMyFeeling is a movement to reveal how young people across the nation are feeling today, via the largest youth-led photography exhibition ever run in the UK.
You simply say how you’re feeling, take a shot that represents the emotion and share it with us to enter.
Your work could be picked out by a top professional photographer and be featured on billboards across the country. Plus, you will give yourself a wellbeing boost in the process!
More than 20,000 young people shared their images and emotions in 2020. More importantly, there was some amazing photography shared, expressing nearly every emotion going.
Connect with your inner self. Improve your mental health. Hone your visual creativity.
With the guidance of professional photographers, our workshops films teach the positive link between photography and mental health…..
The Show and Tell exhibition is the united voice of young people’s emotions and experiences today…

We are very grateful for the support from our sponsor Cisco Webex and all the Show and Tell partners; Mental Health UK, EyeEm, Constance and Getty Images….

“I firmly believe that as a pastoral lead it is my duty to ensure that every child feels happy and safe in school. The Show and Tell Project has given me an excellent platform to encourage pupils to express themselves through imagery. I started it with my classes and small groups before promoting Show and Tell on a whole school basis” Lisa Ward, teacher at Maesteg School
