    Founded in 1975, the mission of Professional Women Photographers (PWP) is the advancement of women photographers through the creation of a dynamic and supportive environment that promotes public interest in photography.

    PWP invites women photographers working in all mediums, processes, styles, and schools of thought to our spring 2013 Call for Entry. Experimental and mixed techniques are welcome.

    Winners will be selected in each of the following four categories:

    • People
    • Places
    • Fine Art
    • Digital Imagination (Composites, Abstracts, etc.)

    Digital image files must meet the following specifications: 8 bit JPEG files (CMYK and 16 bit files will not be uploaded), the longest dimension should be 1280 pixels (width or height), 72 ppi, JPG compression quality of 7 or 8. Images will be viewed as RGB images; therefore Adobe RGB or sRGB profiles should be used.

    All artists maintain copyright on their images.

    The entry fee is $35 for the first three images. Additional images may be submitted for $10 each.

    Eligibility


    This competition is open worldwide to all women photographers; non-members and members of PWP, amateur and professional.

    Prize
