Celebrating creative women: photo feature

Celebrating creative women: photo feature

International Women’s Day (IWD) is on the horizon, so it seems timely to pay homage to the wonderful creative women in the world who continue to inspire through their work. Photographers, writers, bloggers, entrepreneurs, leaders and more: you absolutely inspire me.

To celebrate IWD, Tuesday 8 March, photos by female photographers have been released from the CEWE Photo Award, and some have been shared with us to showcase to you!

The CEWE Photo Award is one of the world’s largest photo competitions, and invites submissions in some of my favourite categories including travel, animals, architecture, landscapes and food.

Travel and culture category three young children walk along a uniquely structured building in Myanmar, photographed by Laura Menesini

People category A woman in traditional celebration festival attire admires her reflection in a mirror as the sun sets in Venice, by Mia Feres

The beautiful thing about this award is that an opportunity is open for all creatives at any level, from amateur to established professionals.

Entrants were asked to submit photos that celebrated the competition’s ‘Our World is Beautiful’ theme.

The images showcased here are some of the best from the wonderful creative women who submitted their work. It really makes me want to dust off my EOS and get back out there.

Animal category a curious pup takes a closer look at a purple flower on its daily walk through the park in Austria, photographed by Corinna Kobliska

If you’re a creative woman like me, and an aspiring photographer, pop in your diary to keep an eye out for this year’s CEWE Photo Award opportunity. It will return for a fifth year in the UK’s springtime.
