Getty Images has teamed up with London’s weekly shorts evening, Short & Sweet, to create the Short & Sweet Challenge. In the challenge, filmmakers had to produce a film inspired by and sourced from the enormous Getty Images’ collection of visual content that is housed at the Hulton Archive in London.

Grand prize winner Laurie Hill won for Photograph of Jesus, which imaginatively combines the voice-over of archivist Matthew Butson’s strangest requests he’s heard, with stock images coming to life.
