Alliance Française de Singapour is going to showcase the International Women Photographers Award - 2019 with the partnership of the International Women Photographer Association (IWPA). In order to promote and encourage the expression of women photographers’ new talents, the Alliances Françaises and InstitutFrançais in Dubai, Beirut, Amman, New Dehli and Riyadh decided to associate to welcome the exhibition of this photography award.
The IWPA exhibition presents a selection of pictures from each photographer. In 2019, the participants could choose between a free theme or the suggested theme: “Fraternity”. The finalists of this year’s award convey various topics from a woman’s perspective through their works. In this exhibition, you will get a chance to explore the meaning of love under the affection of Brexit, understand more about childhood marriage in India, or even get into the life of a touring circus by enjoying the diverse and rich photographs.
The IWPA aims at promoting women photographers all over the world and acting like a global platform to increase their visibility in the eyes of an international audience, amateur or professional. Within the scope of this mission, the IWPA presents a touring exhibition in the main cities and capitals of Middle East, Europe and Asia, showing the works of the laureate and the finalists. Seize the day in the exhibition and let the artworks speak for themselves!
