Today’s round up is competition focused with women in the spotlight. There’s a call for Asian women photographers, as well as recently announced winners in some European-based competitions, including home-grown talent Vanessa Winship.
At some point I want to look at competitions in more detail, particularly in relation to the ever increasing number of them, the question of entry fees (for example, how transparent are photo competitions regarding what happens to entry fees?), criteria for entry, as well as questions relating to how age and gender impact on the world of competitions.
