$25,000 for a project to be produced on a significant issue involving women anywhere in the world
While considering the idea of women’s issues, several themes have been suggested, including femininity and the culture of abuse; women making a difference, leading, changing things for the better; gender inequality; the direct connection to women and education, and the impact on birth rates, health of children and the productivity of the women; gender discrimination, women in leadership, women in the military, mental health issues. These ideas are by no means intended to influence proposals, but they may help photographers in thinking about this topic.
We look forward to receiving your proposals and working with this year’s recipient to help raise awareness and fight some of the issues and ills women face today. Please help by sharing this announcement.
