Women In Photography International (WIPI) announces an international call for entries for "virtual * visual : people - places - things," an international juried online photographic exhibition of works by female photographers. Deadline for entries is July 1, 2004, midnight PST. Exhibition will run from August 1 - October 1, 2004 at www.WomenInPhotography.org.

"Virtual * visual" will feature seventy-four juried images on WIPI's web site. The call for entries is open to female photographers, professional and amateur, using any photographic process. The exhibit will reflect a variety of work from fine art to photojournalism to commercial photography: "virtually everything" women photograph. Entries must be submitted as digital files at www.WomenInPhotography.org via the online form.

Women In Photography International was created in 1981 as a 501.c.3 educational outreach organization by women photographers 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, Berenice Abbott and 2003 Award Winner Annie Leibovitz.

WIPI's online resource center provides member galleries, reference library, and the F2-eZine, which contains articles from around the globe, marketing news, photography links, book reviews and competition listings, and currently receives 40,000+ visitors/month.

"Because WIPI is an international organization and has such a strong online presence, an online exhibit is the perfect venue to showcase and promote the work and vision of female photographers worldwide," said Jean Ferro, photo artist and president of WIPI.

"Virtual * visual" will be curated by Carrie Villines, Photographer and WIPI Professional Member. Carrie views the integration of photography and technology as a powerful tool for redefining creativity, and recognizes the ability of the internet to further WIPI's mission of optimizing exposure to an international audience.

Jurors include Jean Ferro, Photo Artist/WIPI President; Graham Howe, Founder, Curatorial Assistance, Inc., Author and Curator; Maria Piscopo, Creative Services Consultant; Miriam Romais, Managing Director, En Foco/New York; and Stuart Vail, Editor-In-Chief/Publisher, TheScreamOnline.com.
