The winners of the Down’s Syndrome Association’s (DSA) international photographic competition have been announced, with successful entries coming from Ireland, Canada and the USA. Now in its 10th year, the ‘My Perspective’ competition gives photographers who have the genetic condition the chance to share their view of the world.
The Peoples’ Choice Award was voted for by the public online. They chose Conor O’Dowd’s portrait entitled ‘My friend Jason the model’ as their favourite (above). Conor, who is from Drogheda in County Louth, Ireland, said: “I am surprised to win. It’s great. It makes my parents proud. I can’t wait to tell my best friend Jason the great news. I love the My Perspective competition. I was nominated before and it’s great to win. During lockdown I was out and about taking pictures.”
