Our Mission

To promote the visibility of women photographers and their work through:
  • exhibitions
  • educational programs
  • juried competitions
  • lecture programs
  • workshops
  • conferences
Founded in 1981, Women in Photography International has served the needs of photographers, photo educators, photography students, gallery owners and photographic organizations around the world. In keeping with our mission, we have promoted the visibility of women photographers and their work through a variety of programs, exhibitions, juried competitions and publications. 

As an educational nonprofit organization, Women in Photography International is eager to perpetuate this tradition by providing member benefits that will accomodate changing interests and needs as we head into our 19th year as a resource for the international photographic community.

We are currently revitalizing our quarterly newsmagazine f2 by establishing it as an online publication. Incorporating member profiles and portfolios, interviews, book reviews, product information and gallery listings, F2's goal is to become the premiere resource for the international community of women in photography. We feel certain that the expansiveness and opportunity offered through F2, in combination with the Women in Photography International Archives, will provide a professional network that is unparalleled.

We hope you will lend your vision and your voice to this effort.
