100 Distinguished Photographers will be announced March 2008


Please review the WIPI website for our past history as well as our current WIPI  F-2-eZine articles as well as product information, marketing techniques, digital applications, call for entries and exhibitions.

Since WIPI's transition from a paperbound newsletter to an online resource in November, 1999 we have provided a volume of incredible work by women photographers from around the globe. Our Archives will take walk you into the lives of many contemporary photographers as well as articles from the Peter Palmquist historical perspective.

We have enjoyed a wealth of professional support through our juror committees as well and sponsors over the past online seven and one half years.rior to our online launch, WIPI enjoyed a wonderful history of exhibits and programs,

WIPI's Distinguished Photographer Award program has grown over the years from presentations to photographers such as Eve Arnold, Mary Ellen Mark to most recent, Annie Leibovitz, Sylvia Plachy and one of WIPI's original founding members, Carrie Mae Weems. We reached out to bring WIPI's history presentation to celebrate and collaborate the launch of the Lucie Awards in 2003. Both Leibovitz and Plachy were honored through this very special collaboration. Coming soon, March 2008, will be an announcement of 100 Distinguished Photographers in various categories. WIPI decided to step out and compile a list of well known established photographers as well as up and coming women who are active participants in their professional careers as photographers.

Between 2006 and 2007, WIPI provided the extraordinary opportunity for women photographers to participate in the 2006 25th Anniversary juried competition with the resulting, Kodak sponsored limited edition book, Turning Silver. 2007 followed with two juried competitions, The Portrait and 2007 Competition.

We thank Epson America and Dan Steinhardt for his wonderful support since 2001 with the our 20th Anniversary Tea Time, production. We also like to thank Audrey Jonckheer of Kodak, Karen Hansen, FreshLists.com and FotoQuote.com and many sponsors and supporters who have come forward to help make WIPI great. We've had the good fortune to find excellent products both hardware and software that really are meaningful and supportive of photographers.

If you have time, look through our exhibition list and galleries to see the incredible accomplishments of women's work. Visit the WIPI news story "High Adventure: The Pioneering Aerial Photographs of Mary Upjohn Meader" along with Amy Tierney and Maya Myers involvement in “I Dream to… Step Up Womens’ Network’s "Photojournalism for Girls" and Catherine Bauknight's challenge to shed light on the indigenous people of Hawaii - A Voice for Sovereignty
