Our objectives are:

Main activities related to gender equality and women's rights

Since 2016, we have been running the IWPA Award, which was created to provide a global platform for international women photographers increasing the visibility of women’s work every year thanks to a travelling show in several international key cities (in France, Japan, Singapore, India, Lebanon, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Jordan).
We also carry out educational actions in photography for women, training activities against sexist stereotypes, and actions to support women entrepreneurs for the visual presentation of their projects, products and services.
IWPA partners with international NGOs in order to empower girls and women to shape their future and accelerate progress within their communities.
