Our passions define who we are. So Huawei and Dazed asked some of today’s most creative up-and-coming photographers to celebrate the communities that reveal their true selves using the Huawei P10; a dual lens camera phone built on the century-long legacy of Leica, the original street photography pioneers.

From a shortlist of twenty powerful entries, judges from Leica Galleries International and Arts Impact Fund selected just three overall winners. Each received £10,000 for their community, but only one walked away with a Living Gallery of their work: Anthony Shintai Amao, with his impressive celebration of Birmingham’s Break Mission.
