To celebrate our exhibition 'Another Kind of Life: Photography on the Margins', we're launching an Instagram competition in collaboration with LensCulture. The winning photos will be shown at the Barbican Centre (on our plasma screens) and on the Barbican's blog; and the winner will receive two tickets to the show as well as a copy of the exhibition catalogue.
Judging panel: Alona Pardo (curator), LensCulture and Maisie Skidmore ( Digital Editor AnOther Magazine)
