As we enter a week where the nation turns an eye to Women’s Equality Day commemorating a woman’s right to vote, we honor the voices that serve to expand our perspective. To that end, we present our upcoming programs, led and hosted by women in photography, and our call for entries for the Leica Women Foto Project Award. 

The Leica Women Foto Project will award three photographers $10,000 and a Leica Q2 to support the completion of a personal project relevant to today’s social and political climate, as told through the female perspective. The mission of this initiative is to encourage and empower photographers to demonstrate the importance and impact of the female point of view. The award serves as a catalyst to reframe how we see, how we think, and how we express our visual narrative.
