Women Photograph awarded four project grants to photographers last year to support work in India, Mexico, the U.S., and Yemen. Take a look at some of what they've produced so far — and make sure to apply for this year's grants! $35,000 in project funding is available in $5,000 and $10,000 grants, thanks to Nikon and Getty Images. Apply by May 15! You can find more information here.
Here's a selection of some of our favorite work from Women Photograph members this year — from assignment work, long term documentary projects, and personal stories around the globe.
Just in time for the holiday season — here are some of our favorite photobooks from female and non-binary artists in 2017!
In recognizing humanity, it’s impossible to not want to advocate for an inclusive world in which multiple viewpoints -- especially those relegated to the margins -- are presented with dignity, respect, and importance. None of us should feel good about having a hand in a limiting, exclusionary industry. We live in a diverse world. Humans come in all colors, in all body types, in all genders, with different life experiences, and we come together on any given day: diverse, different, compelling.
The panel of judges for the inaugural Women Photograph Grants spent days reading over more than 500 project proposals. There were some consistent suggestions that we had for photographers working on their next applications, and wanted to share.
Women Photograph is thrilled to announce the recipients of the 2017 grants: the Women Photograph + Pulitzer Center grant of $5,000 will go to Alex Kay Potter for her work on the ongoing war in Yemen. The three Women Photograph + ONA grants of $2,500 will go to Luján Agusti, Gabriella Demczuk, and Néha Hirve. We received more than 500 applications from photographers around the world — thank you to everyone who sent in proposals! Congratulations to the four women selected — you can read more about their projects and connect with their work below.
