Women in Photography
Los Angeles, CA, USA United States of America

To celebrate its 20th Anniversary as the world's leading photo resource organization for women working in the photographic arts, Women In Photography International (WIPI) kicks off the traveling exhibition International Tea Time: Images of Women - Images of Tea at the House of Photographic Art in San Juan Capistrano. The theme for the juried exhibition was inspired by a wonderful image of a teapot by the late photographer Linda McCartney, which will be exhibited along with 75 stunning images from 60 women artists. The images were chosen from over 1000 images submitted by women photographers from around the world, representing countries such as Australia, Canada, England, Greece, Italy, Kuwait, Scotland, and the USA, to name a few. Many of these remarkable photographs will be available for purchase. The exhibition will travel throughout the USA and internationally over the next two years, with invitations from Cuba, Italy, Pakistan and others.

We are thrilled to announce that Linda McCartney's print, T-Pot, will be on exhibit as well as a beautiful serene photograph by her daughter Mary McCartney Donald. Our Anniversary exhibit is a wonderful testament to the success of women photographers in the 21st century, said Jean Ferro, photo artist and president of WIPI.

Winner of the first place award in the Tea category is Afternoons a striking fine-art composition of tea bags taken by Dar Spain. Carol Nye won first place in the Women category with her moment-in-time documentary-style image of two Veiled Women in China. Each first place winner will receive an archival digital printer donated by Epson, USA.

The exhibition was juried by Cornelia H. Butler, Photo Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) in Los Angeles, and Joyce Wilson, award-winning fine art photographer and a Professor of Photography at Brooks Institute, Santa Barbara, CA. Juror Joyce Wilson commented, Throughout history, women have been the storytellers, and it is with dignity and grace that these images tell endless stories.

Women In Photography International was created in 1981 as a 501.c.3 educational outreach organization by a group of women photographers who were keen to communicate ideas, opportunities and their passion for photography. In 1985, the Distinguished Photographers Award was established to honor women who have contributed significantly to the world of photography. Previous winners include: Eve Arnold, Ruth Bernhard, Judy Dater, Marion Post Wolcott, Linda McCartney, Mary Ellen Mark, Ruth Orkin, Joyce Tenneson and Berenice Abbott.

WIPI promotes the visibility of women photographers and their work. The web site provides member galleries, reference library, and the F2-eZine, which contains articles from around the globe, marketing news, photography links, book reviews, and listings for competitions.
