Founded in 1981, Women In Photography International (WIPI) is the most recognized organization for women photographers worldwide. WIPI completes the year by announcing “The 2008 Competition” – a juried call for entries of traditional and non-traditional images.
The “2008 Competition” will be juried by an accomplished panel of professionals and the top 10 images as well as 25 honorable mention images will be showcased on http://www.womeninphotograhy.org. Following the Home Page visibility until Spring 2009, the exhibition will be easily accessible in the WIPI archive.
For the “2008 competition”, WIPI welcomes all images including mixed media, color, B/W, alternative or any digital photo image, manipulated, scanned film or scanned prints and submitted as a JPEG file, will be accepted. There is no date restriction. From the greatest joy to the deepest sadness, from the young and fragile to abstract inventions — show WIPI your best work!
The 2008 year end call for entries follows the successful 25th Anniversary print collection and Kodak soponsored book. Starting in 2006 Women In Photography International began the process of researching and culling the names of working women photographers worldwide.
