The FotoEvidence Women award is devoted to engaged women photographers who want to tell their personal stories in the form of a photo book. Through their lenses women can shape the world differently and we want to give them this chance. During the past ten years, FotoEvidence has published 35 books to draw attention to human rights violations, oppression and assaults on human dignity wherever they may occur. At this moment, women around the world are seeking equal rights and equal opportunity. FotoEvidence Women will support this global movement.
The FotoEvidence W Award for Personal Story will be granted by an international jury to one woman whose work merits a book. The hardbound book will be published by FotoEvidence. Two other photographers will receive honorable mentions.
The FotoEvidence W Award is supported by the Grodzins Fund and the VII Foundation.
Submission period: October 1st- November 1st, 2021
The jury reserves the right to not award a grant in any given year if they determine that no candidate has met the criteria.
The winner of The W Award will be announced on the 28th January, 2022 at the FotoEvidence website.
