“We, Women” for women, transgender, and non-binary photographers in the US. Deadline: June 30, 2019

LARGEST SOCIAL IMPACT PHOTOGRAPHY PROJECT BY WOMXN IN THE U.S. LAUNCHES TODAY WITH AN OPEN CALL FOR ARTISTS
United Photo Industries and Women Photograph are proud to announce We, Women, a nationwide platform to support women, transgender, and non-binary photographers who combine images and grassroots strategies to create empathy and social impact on critical issues across the United States, D.C., and Puerto Rico.
The United States is more divided than ever, and we’re currently witnessing the highest level of civic engagement in generations. We, Women projects will fuel the movement by re-framing issues and highlighting underrepresented narratives that resist and interrogate social and political landscapes while promoting empathy and unity.
We, Women launches today with an Open Call for Artists. The first phase of this developing project will feature up to 20 projects launching in 2020.
Each artist will receive:

A cash grant of $5,000-$10,000 for the continuation of existing work or the creation of a new project in a community they have a demonstrated commitment to

Mentorship and production support from We, Women leaders, project partners, and advisors

Promotion and marketing

We, Women believes photographs are only the beginning of a creative and socially-minded process. We support work rooted in collaboration, blurring the lines between author, photographed community, and audience. We support a range of artistic and documentary approaches including photography, video, interactive technology, and the use of historical archives.
