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.

We’re really excited to be working with a range of schools, as well as Break Mission and The Lighthouse Young People’s Centre, to bring break dance classes to enthusiastic young people across Birmingham. The sessions will take place in four locations across the city: three schools* and The Lighthouse. The schools we’re working with are Holte School, Holy Trinity Catholic School, and Four Dwellings Academy, which is also a member of our brand-new Hippodrome Education Network.The fourth set of sessions is open to the public, taking place at The Lighthouse at 6-7.30pm on Thursdays during term time.
