LCC Photography Mentorship Award 2019 Winner: Annabelle Hibberd


Metro Imaging has been working in partnership with University of the Arts London since 2005, with the aim to support BA Photography students making the transition out of education, throughout the Metro Mentorship Award Programme.

Every year, Metro Imaging Creative Director, Steve Macleod, takes the time to explore the work from all the BA Photography course students and, in collaboration and consultation with University staff, selects the one who is deserving of the support, and announce it at the opening of the LCC Degre Show.

As expected, the quality of the work was stunning and it was, as always, a tough decision to make. This year Metro is proud to announce the LCC x Metro Mentorship Award Winner and award student Anabelle Hibberd with her final year exhibition Hard Skin – “an exploration documenting juxtapositions between the natural and man-made and the materiality of the photograph within a space, considering sustainability within the environment”.

The 12 months Metro Imaging Mentorship Award Programme is designed around the needs of the individual, and it includes creative and conceptual advice, professional and business development, marketing identity and PR, technical experience and networking introductions and opportunities, and £1000 of credit to support the making of new work.

Metro would like to congratulate Anabelle one more time, as well to all the students in the programme on their excellent Final Year Degree Show ‘975 days’!
