Throughout the year, PWP sponsors several calls for entry that help fulfill the organization's mission of advancing women in photography. There are member-only calls, as well as international calls that are also open to the general public.
International Open Calls for Entry are one of PWP's primary fund-raising tools, allowing us to raise money needed to support our educational, networking, and community outreach programs.
