Last call for submissions for Women Photographers Malaysia (WPM)’s first photo exhibition, which will be held from March 27 to April 4 at the soon-to-opened Petaling Jaya Performing Arts Centre (PJPAC).
The upcoming photo exhibition is titled Strength.
“The inspiration behind the exhibition theme, Strength, came about knowing that all of us had different journeys of how we got here for standing by other women and our mission to help inspire and empower personal wellness, ” says WPM co-founder Annice Lyn.
WPM was gearing up for an exhibition last November. But all plans had to be cancelled due to the pandemic restrictions.
“Strength can be found anywhere, be it from inner peace, faith, interaction with family and friends, self-expression, or even our sheer will of waking up every morning to take on the day. We are leaving the interpretation open to all participants and hope to see visually gripping images which are accompanied by strong captions that describe how strength is found and achieved, ” says co-founder Aisha Nazar.
For this exhibition, WPM is searching for standalone images that tell a compelling story.
The selection will be curated by Lyn and Aisha, based on technicality, composition, image sharpness and captions. The exhibition will feature 35 images.
The deadline for submission is March 1.
It is open to all women and non-binary photographers who are Malaysians and/or non-Malaysians residing in Malaysia.
This is a paid submission with a minimal fee of RM15 (one image). The collected funds will be used for the exhibition.
