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.)
