 About the Award:

The International Women Photographers Award is a photography award for women organized by Antidote art and design in collaboration with the International Women Photographers Association, MyArtSpy and Alliance Française, Dubai.

IWPA’s goal is to provide a platform for women photographers to exhibit their work to a wide and diverse audience. Established in 2001, the association helps women photographers to gain global recognition and to boost their careers creatively and professionally. IWPA invites all women photographers, professionals or amateurs, regardless of nationality, to participate and enter the yearly Award.
