Global SinoPhoto Awards 2021 Exhibition at the Museum of East Asian Art


The Museum of East Asian Art (MEAA) on Bennett Street in Bath is showcasing the winners and highly commended photographs of the Global SinoPhoto Awards 2021 from 16 February until 14 May 2022.  

The Global SinoPhoto Awards invite photographers to tell Chinese stories, imagining, interpreting, and inspiring connections between Chinese culture and the rest of the world.  

Selected from almost 2,000 entries from around the world, including the UK, the winning image titled ‘The Dancing Dreams of a Mountain Girl’, depicting a young mountain girl dancing for her grandmother while she works making toy tigers in a small rural village in China, is the overall winner of the international photo competition celebrating Chinese culture.

British photographer Adrian Bradshaw was highly commended for his photograph ‘Swimmer’ in the Water category, who will be giving a talk on his experience of documenting China’s reformation in the past three decades. Learn more details of Adrian’s talk by clicking here
