In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act
The Everyday Heroine
Celebrating ordinary women
who perform extraordinary deeds
Call for entries: The Everyday Heroine photography award. Open worldwide, this competition aims to put the spotlight on gender discrimination.
We invite you, the creative photographer, to grab your camera, to find and record the lives of the everyday heroines, to be their voice. To record those women who have influenced your life. They may be a source of inspiration or of aspiration, of learning or just comfort knowing they are there. Go capture images of everyday heroines - mothers, grandmothers, the nurse from your village, the teacher from your school, the social care worker, and the lollipop lady - whoever and wherever they may be.
Let us not forget the many women who work in the emergency and military services ~ the Police, the women who work for the healthcare systems - our doctors and our nurses.
And then there are the staff you don’t see, the women working behind the scenes - without whom the front line would not function.
So, who will be your heroine?
This photography award challenges the stereotype of the everyday woman and urges you to revaluate how we perceive ‘the everyday heroine’. Bring us photographs to illuminate the forgotten women - often viewed as inferior - yet so often undertaking the most important tasks as guardians of the fabric of our society.
