Professional Women Photographers (PWP) International Women Only Call for Entries

December 21, 2010

Deadline: February 28, 2011

Professional Women Photographers (PWP) helps both emerging and established women artists achieve recognition for their photographic work through its website, exhibitions, and calls for entries.

THEME: CONTRASTS

Dark and light, fast and slow, young and old, urban and rural, soft and hard, funny and sad, real and artificial, smooth and craggy, solid and fluid, rich and poor, true and false, etc. There are as many examples of contrast as there are adjectives and adverbs in the English language.  PWP invites women photographers from around the world to submit images they feel illustrate contrast in the world and in their photography.

Exhibition juror, Ruth Fremson will award $2500 in cash prizes, a group show in Manhattan’s SohoPhoto Gallery, an online exhibition and a feature article in IMPRINTS Magazine Spring/Summer 2011 issue.
