Women Behind the Lens - Shining a light on diverse perspectives

In today’s climate, it’s more important than ever to open our eyes to diverse different views and voices. But in the photographic world, the female viewpoint is hugely under-represented: the overwhelming majority of images found within the professional domain are taken by men.

Picfair’s Women Behind The Lens competition is seeking a new generation of female photographers, of all levels of experience, to showcase their unique perspectives on the world. From landscapes to portraits, from the streets to skyscrapers, Women Behind The Lens will champion female photography to Picfair’s global audience.

With an esteemed panel of judges from across the industry, and prizes including exhibiting at the Guardian newspaper’s gallery in London, the competition will be open to entries until November 26th, 2017.

Welcome, and good luck. Read more

Capturing the essence of character is one of photography’s greatest challenges, but when you get it right, you can create some of the most arresting images in the genre. Share those shots where you meet someones eye and can’t look away.


Winners and shortlisted entries will be shown at a ‘Women Behind the Lens’ exhibition at The Guardian in December and January. Photographers will also be eligible for a range of other prizes including portfolio reviews and equipment. In addition, entrants' work will be available to license via the Picfair platform at a price set by the photographer. All copyright will remain with the photographer. See below for more details.
