Through their Eyes Photography competition for female photographers, journalists and students


2017-04-18

The Media Development Center (MDC) at Birzeit University, the Ministry of Women’s Affairs, and the Ministry of Culture announce the launch of the competition “Through their Eyes” under the title ‘Women and Professions’ for female photographers, employed or unemployed journalists, and media students. The competition aims to collect a large number of images of women and their professions in Palestine and to encourage creativity in photojournalism by female Palestinian journalists. Together, we intend to construct a beautiful and up-to-date archive that reflects the reality of Palestinian women and their presence in the judiciary, politics, culture, business, the press, and other professions. Access to the pictures in the archive will be made available to all media institutions.

Sixty photographs from the cameras of female Palestinian journalists will be selected based on criteria defined by a special jury, and the winning photographs will be presented in an exhibition held on the 8th of March to mark International Women’s Day at Birzeit University. The exhibition will then tour several Palestinian universities, Nazareth, and the southern West Bank. Six prizes will be awarded for the best photographs.

The Jury:

The jury consists of male and female experts in the media, photography, and gender.
