Women Photograph is an initiative that launched in 2017 to elevate the voices of women* visual journalists. The private database includes more than 850 independent women documentary photographers based in 99 countries and is available privately to any commissioning editor or organization. Women Photograph also operates an annual series of project grants for emerging and established photojournalists, a year-long mentorship program, and a travel fund to help female photographers access workshops, festivals, and other developmental opportunities. Our mission is to shift the gender makeup of the photojournalism community and ensure that our industry's chief storytellers are as diverse as the communities they hope to represent.
If you are a picture editor, creative director, or someone who routinely hires photographers, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for a complete electronic database of our members, which includes much more detailed information regarding geographical areas of expertise, languages spoken, hostile environment training experience, and contact information.
*We believe that gender is a spectrum. Women Photograph is inclusive of a plurality of femme voices including trans, queer and non-binary people. <3
