Since 2012 it has been possible to determine by means of non-invasive tests before birth whether a child will have Down's syndrome, as necessary, initiate an abortion. The photo series 'one hundred and forty centimetres' raises questions about our relationship with the stigma of 'living with impairment,' and the technical possibilities to determine this even before birthPicture: Sabine Lewandowski/2015 Sony World Photography Awards

Professional: Campaign - Lidos Of England: Lost & Found. Lidos were perhaps at their most popular between the wars when people took their holidays here in England. Many of them were built in the 1930s or earlier and were naturally located on the English south coast, which was a favoured holiday destination for those living in London and the home counties. However there were many that were built in towns and cities to cope with the demand that once was and many of these remain. However, when the affordability of overseas holidays started to emerge in the 1960s many of these lidos fell into decline and have never recovered.Picture: Jonathan Syer/2015 Sony World Photography Awards
