Barbara Anastacio, Portugal, 22 - Winner most humourous photo - answering question 'What can you do about it?'

Winning entries from a worldwide competition for budding young photojournalists.

The six-week Shoot Nations contest, open to anyone aged 24 and under, received 1500 entries from 85 countries, as participants captured issues that affect their lives.

A panel of experts have chosen the winners, along with their top 48 photos which have been assembled in a light-box art installation.

The competition, run by international children's charity Plan and event organisers Shoot Experience, has the theme of how the world's youth is governed and how young people view the state of the world.

Project co-ordinator Hamish Mackenzie, from Plan, says: "This is not just about taking good photographs - it's about getting children interested and involved in decision-making and government at every level.

"Plan works with children in some of the world's poorest countries to improve their own lives because so often they succeed where adults have failed."
