Louise Haywood-Schiefer has won a Portrait of Britain award for her work with Remarkable Women Award winner Tobi Kyeremateng.

Tobi Kyeremateng is an inspiration to many, including us. The theatre producer is the founder of the Black Ticket Project, which provides young black people across London with free theatre tickets. It’s her work on the project that saw her named Inspiration of the Year at Stylist’s first Remarkable Women Awards in partnership with Philosophy, a category that was exclusively voted for by Stylist readers. At the time of the awards, the Black Ticket Project had given away over 1,500 tickets and partnered with venues such as the National Theatre and The Old Vic.

With all of those achievements under her belt, it’s not surprising to see Kyeremateng gaining publicity for her incredible work – but now, there’s a new reason why you might be seeing her face pop up across the country.

As part of making the shortlist for the Inspiration of the Year Award, Kyeremateng had a portrait taken by Louise Haywood-Schiefer; that shot has now won an award as part of The British Journal of Photography’s fourth annual Portrait of Britain award, which honours 100 photographs from across the country which celebrate the diversity of Britain today.

In the shot in question, Kyeremateng smiles broadly in front of a yellow background, wearing a blue turtle-neck jumper and a dark-red lipstick.

Louise Haywood-Schiefer is a London-based portrait photographer, who has photographed the likes of Prince William, Theresa May and Saoirse Ronan. Her other projects include photographing the world’s first cat show, and working with Jessica Johnson to document 100 years of the Women’s Institute.

As part of the award, the photograph will be shown on public digital screens across the country, and exhibited in a special book to honour the 100 award winners, so Haywood-Schiefer’s incredible photography skills will be making their way to a screen near you soon.
