09" JURIED COMPETITION
Women In Photography International
created a special call for entries, "Summer 09" to explore the visual
impact of the life giving forces of children, flowers and trees.
In today's world of confusion, fear, illness, and abuse, let's take the time to
look at the beauty of nature and children. We hope that you will participate and
submit images to raise our consciousness, add a smile to our face and bring forth
a feeling of appreciation of the beauty around us.
WIPI continues to honor
women photographers worldwide with an online presence through competitions, galleries,
feature stories and our Hire-a-WIPI Pro directory. WIPI Competition winners
have received recognition in the arts through exposure at womeninphotography.org.
The WIPI archive is a key reference for collectors and researchers and curators.
Our past jurors have opened the doors to future opportunities for photographers
seen on the Women In Photography International website.
The annual Distinguished
Photographer's Award started in 1985 as a tribute to photographers of excellence
and achievement. WIPI has honored photographers Annie Leibovitz (2003) and Sylvia
Plachy (2004) at the Lucie Awards, in NYC. In 2005, WIPI announced, founding
member, photographer Carrie Mae Weems as the recipient of the WIPI Distinguished
Photographers Award. Former recipients include: Eve Arnold, Linda McCartney,
Marion Post Wolcott, Ruth Orkin, Mary Ellen Mark, Grace Robertson, Judy Dater,
