Join us in documenting and celebrating women's stories!
Women and girls play important roles around the world, but our lives and work are often overlooked or unappreciated.
Through this competition and exhibition PhotoForward is challenging our photographers to share the amazing stories of women and girls in their families and communities through individual photographs and/or photo sets (diptychs and triptychs).
COMPOSITION: TELLING THE STORY USING OUR SKILLS AND TECHNIQUES
All submissions should be documentary style and "natural" (not posed). Photographers should think about which skills will help to tell their story:
AWARDS AND HONORS
All of the submissions will be reviewed by an international jury of professional photographers and media makers and the top 10 Single Photographs and 6 Photo Sets will be selected for the exhibition:

HOW TO SUPPORT YOUR CANDIDATES
As partners and collaborators, we appreciate your support for and encouragement of the photographers in your community. However, this challenge is an opportunity for the workshop participants to demonstrate their initiative, refine their storytelling and technical skills, and develop their creative "voice".
In support of this goal, we request that partners refrain from directing, editing, or overly influencing the artists' work or submitting a selection of work representing the community.
GOOD LUCK & HAVE FUN!
