Young Railway Photographer of the Year

See a selection of images from the 2022 competition on the theme of 'the Railway Seen'.

The railway is a thread that connects people and places across the world. Ever-changing and in perpetual motion, a chance to pause and capture a moment in time is incredibly valuable.

We are proud to display the winning selection of images from the competition, inspiring the next generation of railway enthusiasts and photographers among our world-class collection of railway heritage objects.

More than 900 photographs were entered into the competition by contributors aged 25 and under. The winners of each category have been selected for their authenticity and artistic ambition to truly seize this year’s theme.
