In June 2020, we asked our network of women photographers to submit project ideas on the theme :’Women & COVID-19′. We wanted to support them during lockdown, and to ensure their lives were being documented.
Because we are all about developing and nurturing young photographers, we asked photographers to pitch ideas, instead of finished projects. This opened opportunities for more junior photographers, and for those who didn’t have access to shooting equipment.
We received many entries, and awarded 11 shortlisted projects with a cash prize, and a mentor, to shoot their series. We are very thankful to have been able to support 11 projects, from 4 countries!
