Pearson and renowned British photographer, publisher, film director, humanitarian and now an exclusive judge in this invite, Rankin selected over 80 artists that will receive $500 for each of the photographs selected! Take a look at the top 10 selected images below, the full bank of selected images on the Creative Invite page and a quote from Pearson, Together and Mother. 

"The judges selected images that we believed best captured the magic of learning in its many forms. The top ten images were singled out because they pulled on the heart strings and left a lasting impression, as well as being vibrant, colourful and optimistic.  We are delighted to have partnered with Talenthouse on this campaign and to have seen such international participation and engagement.” - Rebecca Sinclair, VP Global Brand Architect, Pearson

"There was a captivating sense of natural emotion that came through in the photography and we can’t wait to start working with the images in our work for Pearson." - Together

"It’s great to see such an array of global talent with the true ability to evoke real emotion. It’s awesome.” - Mother
