The two joint runners up are “Mother Daughter Solidarity” by Cordelia Weedon and “One Small Change” by Malumbo Simwaka.
“One Small Change”, depicts a programme “Breaking the Barriers”, partly supported by Christian Aid supporters in Wales and the European Union alongside 875 women in Malawi. The women are increasing their incomes and engage with local authorities to meet their needs. Of the photograph, Christian Aid said “Ida Lazalo, 39 (far left), Eddina Yonasi, 49, group chair (second from left) and fellow members of the Members of the Makande Women’s Group proudly showing off their baobab fruits they have just harvested from the baobab trees ready to make juice with in Chikwawa District, Southern Malawi, in March 2021.”
“Mother Daughter Solidarity” depicts Ireen and her mother, Rose, sitting outside their home in Uganda in 2020. Cordelia, the photographer, said of the image “Mother and Daughter painted their home together. They live alongside the ancient Nyero Rock Paintings World Heritage Site, which inspired their design. Ireen likes being creative and wants to become a teacher, so Rose tries to give her as much support as possible.
