PWP In Action


Professional Women Photographers is a vibrant organization dedicated to furthering the skills and visions of our members, as well as the enrichment of the wider photo community.

Founded in 1975 by a group of women photographers who were trying to break the glass ceiling of a male-dominated profession, PWP has supported and inspired women photographers for over 40 years through:

          International Calls for Entry

          Member only exhibitions


          Lectures by Prominent Members of the Photography World

          Gallery Tours

          Photo Strolls

          And much much more!

Giving Tuesday DONATIONS

 PWP has joined #GivingTuesday, a global day of giving that harnesses the collective power of individuals, communities and organizations to encourage philanthropy and to celebrate generosity worldwide. Occurring this year on November 29, #GivingTuesday is held annually on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving (in the U.S.) and the widely recognized shopping events Black Friday and Cyber Monday to kick-off the holiday giving season and inspire people to collaborate in improving their local communities and to give back in impactful ways to the charities and causes they support.

Since 1975, PWP has been supporting and inspiring women photographers around the world with lectures, workshops, exhibitions and much, much more. Monthly meetings at the Opera Guild at Lincoln Center provide an opportunity for sharing ideas and valuable networking with other women photographers.

#GivingTuesday is a new way of linking individuals and causes to strengthen communities and encourage giving. To participate and give back to PWP, click here to donate.
