Women and Photography: Ways of Seeing and Being Seen

Part of Photo Oxford 2020

Open Rating Results
Brief

Photo Oxford 2020 is pleased to announce its Open Call for photography submissions that investigate Photo Oxford’s 2020 Festival theme: Women and Photography: Ways of Seeing and Being Seen. The Festival theme explores female identity in front of the lens and behind it. For more information, please see www.photooxford.org.

Photographers of all genders are invited to respond to the theme as widely as possible. Works can be from any kind of photography practice. Submissions are for a single photograph per entry (though up to six entries are welcome) and the challenge to photographers is to interpret the theme in an original, imaginative way, while submitting a single work that is visually arresting.

How it works

Every photo submitted will be available for the crowd to rate once the submissions period has ended. In this contest, the entries are hidden until the rating period begins.

Some contests on Photocrowd also have a judge. After the submission period closes the judge chooses their favourite images and writes some image reviews. The crowd and judge results will be announced on the same day.
