The IWPA Award is a photography award organized by the International Women In Photo Association and open to all women photographers from all countries.

An internationally selected jury composed of eminent figures from the art and photography community shortlists five candidates and one laureate. Every year, itinerary exhibitions are organised around the world in Asia, the Middle East and Europe to showcase the works of the Laureate and finalists.

IWPA provides a platform for women photographers and promotes their work to a wide and diverse audience thus contributing to a plurality of vision. Its mission is to  encourage and help women photographers to gain global recognition in order for them to move forward creatively and professionally.

Due to the dramatic events of this year due to the COVID-19, the exhibition is this year presented in a Virtual reality (VR) Gallery format. Explore the works of the different photographers in a 3D VR Gallery right here.
