Women In Photography International is excited to present "
FACES" a call for entries to all (male and female/professional/amateur) photographers and artists.

WIPI is looking forward to seeing images of peoples "
FACES" from all ages, all races, male and female from birth through adolescent, teenage, mature, elderly and centenarian years.

Images that reflect either an artistic representation, classic professional portrait or casual face snapshots including pretty, grotesque, happy, sad, excited, surprised, content, suspicious, angry, puzzled, animated, upside right.. or upside down!. Famous to not so famous! In costumes, hats, veils, wearing glasses to bare chested bullies!

Images of faces can either fill the frame with just the face or we require a minimum crop from the hip/waist in the frame. We want to see "
FACES" -- standing full frame images need to be cropped to at least to waist level for our competition.
