80% of photography graduates are female yet only 15% of professional photographers are women. Female in Focus is our way of addressing gender imbalance in the industry.
Our mission is to open up the world of photography to diverse talent, and to empower women and those who identify as women to step behind the lens.
20 winning images from the Single Image Category, and two winning bodies of work from the Stories Category will be exhibited in a dedicated group show at United Photo Industries Gallery in Brooklyn, NYC, USA.
The exhibition will run for a month between October/ November 2019, following on from New York City’s PhotoPlus Expo. During this period, the biggest names in the industry descend on New York City looking for the best emerging talent. This is the time and place to get noticed.
