This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up a special edition in celebration of International Women’s Day on 8th March featuring the laureate and finalists of this year’s International Women Photographers Award.
These Awards don’t get the kind of coverage in the media that World Press Photo, POYi and others receive and that’s one good reason to feature them this week. The other, and the most important, is that these Awards demonstrate the amazing work being done by women photographers all over the world. These images will go on show at an exhibition in Dubai which opens on International Women’s Day.
Plus in Melbourne Magnet Galleries hosts its 7th annual women’s exhibition which raises funds for UN Women.
