Social science research plays a vital role in our society. From big ideas to the most detailed observations, social science affects us all every day - at work, in school or college, within our communities, when exploring our identities and expressing our beliefs.
The Bigger Picture competition provided an opportunity for 14-18 year olds to be creative by using photography to explore the relevance of social science to their lives.
The competition is now closed but you can view a free exhibition of the judges' favourite photos, including the winning images, from 20-25 March 2018 at the Espacio Gallery in London:
