Deadline: 7 November 2022. The Leica Women Foto Project serves to empower the female perspective and its impact on today’s visual stories. We believe the shape of a story is reactive to the storyteller’s perspective, developing a narrative that too often is reflective of individual truths. The Leica Women Foto Project encourages diversity and inclusion in visual storytelling to amplify voices typically underrepresented in photography, discovering the breadth of shapes formed by a single story. Conceived in 2019, the initiative has evolved to offer cash awards, mentor ship and business opportunities and Leica equipment to serve the female perspective in the world of photography.
The theme of this year’s award is a personal photo project that bears witness to humanity, expressed through the female point of view. Submit 10 images made between 2019 – 2022. Submissions can be made on any camera make and model. Owning a Leica camera is NOT required. Smartphone photography is NOT allowed. Applications will be judged by three categories Quality of Photography, Dedication to the Medium, and Sophistication of Project.
One winner in each region (United States, United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada) will receive:
• $10,000 USD
• Leica SL2-S camera and Leica Vario-Elmarit-SL 24-70 f/2.8 ASPH lens
