Female in Focus Winners

We are pleased to announce the winning images and bodies of work of Female in Focus 2020!

From 1854 Media and British Journal of Photography, the Female in Focus award was conceived in response to staggering gender imbalance in photography. An open call to female-identifying photographers around the world, it is an annual initiative to promote and reward women’s work in an industry that disproportionately favours men’s.

From a pool of thousands of entries, the panel has selected two outstanding bodies of work and 20 single images to be exhibited at El Barrio’s Artspace. Collectively, the curation examines gender, race, sexuality and beyond, weaving delicate stories of beauty and pain; joy and injustice; resilience and reflection.

Please note: Due to COVID-19, the Female in Focus Exhibition has been postponed until a later date.
