Last letter - November 25, 2005

WIPI has had an incredible year. A non stop process of promoting WIPI photographers and programs. We started the year with the online juried exhibition of virtual * visual, which included jurors:..... followed by our tribute to Cartier Bresson and ..... juried Decisive Moments online exhibition. A whirlwind weekend in San Diego to present the WIPI workshop The Business of Working in Photography at the Photo Imaging & Design Expo. with a shared panel of Karen Hansen,, Francoise Kirkland, agent for Douglas Kirkland and Scott McKernan, Founder of

Next we jumped even higher and gathered one of the most prestigious jury panels for "Beauty, Camera Eye of the Beholder" ...keeping in mind a classic Donald Trump saying, Go For the Top and we did, even to Trump's Ad Agency in NYC for an art director juror of Deutch Inc., NYC, along with other top professionals in the field.

WE announced Carrie Mae Weems as our Distinguished Photographer of the year in October and we celebrated Ruth Bernhard's 100 Birthday with a member tribute. Still no stopping November, We launched a collaborative effort with Kodak and their Easy Share Camera. 7 WIPI photographers from San Francisco, New York City and London were catapulted into the limelight with a Kodak extravaganza gallery presentation of their work about the city they live in, in a well attended and exciting evening. See photos and event description.

Starting 2006 WIPI will celebrate 25 years of it's existence as a nonprofit organization who's goal is to promote the visibility of women working in photography. During 2005 we will predominately focus on WIPI member work, either work by them or stories they have to tell about their inspiration and ideas. 
We will do a variety of online presentations, so stay tuned. stop back to see us again shortly.
