International Festival Odesa Photo Days 2021 is announcing a Female Ukrainian Photographers open call


For a long time, photography has been a man’s field — leafing through the exhibition catalogs of the last century one can rarely come across female names. One of the reasons is believed to be the lack of women’s interest in photography, but at the same time in the archives, we find the work of unknown but interesting female photographers.

Another opinion is that women leave art after creating a family and having children, but in the modern world, there are already so many examples that overcome this stereotype. Also in professional circles there are judgments that work in hot spots, long expeditions, and on sports grounds is a strictly man’s job, but history and modernity time after time proves that professionalism and agility do not depend on gender.

Odesa Photo Days 2021 want to give a voice to women: to show what they shoot, what they care about, how they shape stories and visual messages, and to use these examples to trace how contemporary photography develops in Ukraine.

Applications are accepted from Ukrainian female photographers, without limitation on age and technique of work. The selected series will be presented at Odesa Photo Days 2021 and other international photography festivals in 2021-2022. Participation in the contest is free.

Curator – Kateryna Radchenko
Deadline – February 26, 2021
Results announcement – March 2021
