Women Behind the Lens Competition Open to Women Worldwide

We recently published about the 50/50 initiatives toward male-female equality in the arts.

PicFair is also actively working toward a greater equality for women photographers with their Women Behind the Lens annual competitions.

PicFair launched the Women Behind the Lens competition in 2017 to highlight the gender imbalance in the commercial photography industries, where just 2% of photographers on the books at major commercial agencies are women, and only 5% of the images used by leading photography publishers are from the lenses of female photographers.

Women can submit to the 2018 Women Behind the Lens competition from August 1st to October 1st, 2018 in four categories: PORTRAIT, NATURE, ARCHITECTURE, STREET LEVEL

(You can also upload up to one thousand of your photographs for sale on the PicFair site at prices you set.)

For more information about this competition, please visit the Women Behind the Lens 2018 competition page, or email hello@picfair.com

Two Artist Resources that Defy Categorization: Works.io and Art360 Gallery

From first view, the Art365 Gallery website has the look of an online art magazine, IMO. Although they refer to themselves as both an online art gallery and an art blog. You’ll find Featured Artists, Galleries, Glass Artists, and Art News.

Visual artists and glass artists are invited to submit for a permanent spot on this site.

– Send  a text in 300-500 characters about you, your artworks and perhaps a few words about your art technique.

– A link to your website/Facebook page.

– 6-8 quality images of your art.

They will rewrite a unique text about you and your art, show the best of your artworks and link to your website and Facebook fan page from their art blog (it’s a 100% free service). You’ll find the full details on their website.

Works.io is a sophisticated artist driven platform with a professional portfolio and CV tool for emerging fine artists to create online visibility.

Works.io is something like an artist directory, yet, when artists sign up for free they have a dashboard allowing them to add images of their art, their exhibition news, and more. Works.io also offers a monthly selection of emerging artists with more extensive text about each artist showcased. Works.io selects sophisticated art in low-key tones for their feature.

These relatively new sites have been added to our 57 page e-list of art magazines, blogs, and artist directories.
