Given the subjective nature of beauty, entrants are
encouraged to push the boundaries of accepted notions
of beauty and show their distinctive perception of beauty.
Entries can illustrate traditional ideas of

Women In Photography International, the #1 resource
for female photographers worldwide, was created in 1981
as a 501.c.3 educational outreach organization by women
photographers to communicate ideas, opportunities and
their passion for photography. In 1985 WIPI established
the Distinguished Photographers Award to honor women
who have contributed significantly to the world of photography.
Previous winners include Eve Arnold, Ruth Bernhard,
Judy Dater, Marion Post Wolcott, Linda McCartney, Mary
Ellen Mark, Ruth Orkin, Joyce Tenneson, Berenice Abbott,
Annie Leibovitz and 2004
Award Winner Sylvia Plachy.
WIPI’s online resource center provides member
galleries, reference library, and the F2-eZine, which
contains articles from around the globe, marketing news,
photography links, book reviews and competition listings.
will be an exciting exhibition showcasing the diversity
of cultures and the concept of visual beauty,”
said Jean Ferro, Photo Artist and President of WIPI.
“In a world of chaos and violence, the WIPI call
for entries and the resulting online exhibition will
be a contrast, a virtual imprint of how female photographers
see the world around them.”
