Founded by Amber Leach of Liberty Pearl Photography, the Women in Photography conference brings female photographers & videographers in Devon and Cornwall together to learn and support each other in a growing community setting.
Recognising underrepresentation in the local community, Amber organised the first event in August 2016 in Plymouth, booking speakers who could tell important stories, showcase their talents, who travelled and inspired with their work. Amber has since held 3 successful events with 100 attendees so far and a growing fanbase.
This September is the women in photography conference 1st Anniversary and we would like the conference to be a special one. So, we are having an EXHIBITION!
Conference date is Wednesday 27th September 2017
Venue: Duke of Cornwall Hotel, Plymouth
The images will be sold on the night (and possibly during an auction) where we will also hold a private viewing and invite local businesses /artists etc to the exhibition before hand and sell the images there. We are not only holding the exhibition to raise money for a fabulous women’s charity but we are also holding the exhibition to CELEBRATE the AMAZING talented female photographers in the South West!
So we would like you all to submit your favourite images that you would like to exhibit and we will choose the best 15 – 20 for the exhibition. We don’t have a theme. Entrants are asked to submit a series of 3-10 images on any theme and of any subject, but should be suitable for hanging on a gallery wall. We are currently applying for corporate sponsorship for the exhibition, SO THERE IS NO COST FOR THE SUBMISSIONS!! YIPPEE!!!
If anyone has any ideas on how to get/raise EXTRA money for this exhibition then please put them forward. So please comment below with your ideas and any questions you have and we will get back to you. We would love a discussion around this becuase we want this to be about all of you wonderful ladies and your talents!!! There will also be prizes for the best judged images.
CRITERIA: YOU MUST BE A PHOTOGRAPHER RESIDING IN DEVON OR CORNWALL!
If you want to email me your digital submissions please do so to the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission deadline: Friday 18th August 2017
Please feel free to submit more than one entry. You must put ‘WOMEN IN PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION SEPTEMBER 2017’ in the subject line or the emails will get lost!
We look forward to seeing all of your entries!
