Alliance Frangaise de Delhi is pleased to present International Women Photographers Award- Edition 2018, organized by International Women Photographers Association. It’s an exhibition of works of 11 photographers who have been selected from the 60 short-listed candidates. A total of more than 600 women photographers from 82 countries have submitted their entries to the International Women Photographers Award (IWPA). The results demonstrate the outstanding success of the IWPA award around the world as the selected photographers come from Middle East, Europe, Asia and South America.

This exhibition is a display of photographs taken from each photographer’s series. The participants could choose between either the ”free theme” or the IWPA theme 2018 “Visible/Invisible”. The diversity, the richness, the story behind and the quality of their works speak for itself.

Laureate: Constanza Portnoy -Argentinian

Constanza’s powerful and deeply moving series titled ‘Force of Life’ portrays the life of people with disabilities. With deep compassion and trust, Constanza builds a relationship with each of the individuals she portrays in these compelling images.

“I feel excited, honored and very happy. Especially because in Argentina it is very difficult for now to raise awareness about this issue, unfortunately the rights of people with disabilities are very vulnerable”. Constanza Portnoy
