Announcing the winners of Lensational’s ‘Women & COVID-19’ competition
We’re very pleased to announce the 11 winners of our ‘Women & COVID-19’ competition!!
Coming from Kenya, Ghana, Spain, Russia and Kenya, our winners have been selected to shoot their visual stories on the theme of ‘Women and the COVID-19 pandemic’ with us.
We will be introducing the winners’ projects in the next few days on our Instagram feed. From the domestic workers supporting each other through job loss during the pandemic, to the forgotten ‘frontline’ workers, or the COVID heroines, our winners’ stories shed light on topics, rarely seen in mainstream media, and rarely captured through a local lens.
Because we are all about developing underrepresented voices, the 11 winners have been selected based on their ideas, and will be shooting their stories with our support in coming weeks. Each have been paired with a mentor, and will receive $50 to shoot their project.
We’ll be sharing more about each photographer, and their journey with their project, in the coming month. Stay tuned!
