Join Advance at the annual Commonwealth Gala Awards Dinner on Thursday 14 October to celebrate young Australian Lewis Jarratt's award for Commonwealth Photographer of the Year.
The Royal Commonwealth Society is an international education charity, based in London. Its aim is to encourage international understanding and engage people with the modern Commonwealth.
The Young Commonwealth Competitions do this through providing creative ways for young people to compete internationally, with entries open across the Commonwealth’s 54 countries and designed to engage with key global issues.
This year the Competition received thousands of entries across the three areas of writing, film and photography. Young Australian Lewis Jarrett is the only Pacific winner of any of the competitions this year and has won one of the top four global prizes in the Commonwealth Photographic Awards, the only international photography competition of its kind.
