The stories and lives of women, told in women’s voices

The Women Photojournalists of Washington (WPOW) is hosting its 11th Annual Juried Show at FotoWeekDC, featuring the work of its members. While the photographs themselves are not required to have women in them, the work should focus on an issue or topic that affects women. This year’s competition was judged by Diàna Markosian, Jenn Poggi and Maggie Steber. The exhibition displays the work of many women in photojournalism in the Washington metropolitan area, including staff and contributing contract photographers from The Washington Post.

WPOW is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization with the mission to educate the public about the work and accomplishments of women in the field of photojournalism and to instruct and train women in the Washington area to develop their capabilities as photojournalists, photo editors and multimedia producers.

WPOW will open the show Monday from 6 to 8 p.m. at 3222 M Street NW, Washington, D.C., 20007. Admission is free.
