Eligibility and Theme
seeingWOMEN is open to all photographers worldwide—all genders, all genres, all experience levels working in all mediums, styles and schools of thought.
Traditional, contemporary, avant-garde creative, professional/non-professional and experimental works that include old and new processes, mixed techniques, collages, and challenging personal, emotional or political statements are all welcome.
Our theme is “Women” in the broadest extension of her visual representation: girls, women at work, political statements about women, motherhood, discrimination, portraits, sensuality. Women in different cultures, women in education and in performing art. The theme is completely open and broad, aiming to have a vision of women. Nudes welcome. We fully believe in diverse, powerful, unrestrained and open representations of all aspects of women.
Photographers should submit images individually or as a series composed of 4 to 6 images, consisting of a coherent body of work, or part of a larger portfolio or series.
Each category will have selected a First Prize, Second Prize, Third Prize and Honorable Mentions as the Juror(s) decide. One photographer will be selected to receive the “Best in Festival” selection and will be awarded a one-week Artist in Residency at Maison des Rêves Bed & Breakfast/Photo Workshop in the south of France.
Winners of the seeingWOMEN contest will be featured on the Photo de Femmes’ website, press releases, and social media announcements and contests, and be included in other PDF international 2020 exhibitions when possible.
