International Women Photographers Award

05/12/2019 - 13:02

The International Women Photographers Association (IWPA) is a non profit association in France acting on a global scale. Their main missions are the promotion of women photographers of all origins and nationalities, and working for Parity and Equality through photography in the World.

Every year, they organize the International Women Photographers Award.

The IWPA award was created to provide a global platform for international women photographers increasing the visibility of women’s work every year thanks to a traveling show in several international key cities.

The Award aims to encourage and support women photographers on the path of reaffirming their personal voice and their vision. It creates an unique opportunity to improve their prominence as they are still highly underrepresented in the world of photography and lack access to platforms and institutions willing to show their works.

Since 2016 the exhibition has travelled to Dubai, Riyadh, Tokyo, Singapore, New Delhi, Beirut, Saida, Zahleh, Amman, Paris, Toulouse, Marseille, Bangalore, Hyderabad, where 33 photographers from all over the world exhibited their works. In three years, IWPA has received more than 1700 applications from over 80 different countries.

IWPA is interested in collaborating with potential partners and exhibition halls.
