Currently available via online subscription only, this final analog issue of Silvershotz is slated for publication in May 2014. Be sure to take the opportunity to order this highly collectible publication with its lavish color imagery, pristine B&W reproductions, and signature layouts that allow the work to maintain visual hierarchy thanks to advertising-free content.
Founded in 1981 by a group of pioneering, energetic women photographers based in Southern California, WIPI (http://www.womeninphotography.org) is a nonprofit organization with the goal of promoting the visibility of women photographers and their work.
In 2000, with the support of historian Peter Palmquest and WIPI's past director Nancy Clendaniel (1987-2000), photo artist Jean Ferro at the helm as president, expanded its primary source of outreach by switching from the bimonthly printed member publication F2 - thereby establishing the nonprofit as a comprehensive online presence. Since this decisive transition nearly 15 years ago, WIPI has become a premier, online professional creative resource through competitions, exhibitions and feature stories about women’s photographic work.
Women In Photography International continues to present its Distinguished Photographer Award, honoring woman photographers who have worked professionally in the field for over 25 years. WIPI’s 2013 recipient was Editta Sherman, the celebrated 103-year-old photographer who became known as "The Duchess of Carnegie Hall." Past recipients include: Annie Leibovitz, Linda McCartney, Mary Ellen Mark, Sylvia Plachy, Joyce Tenneson, and Grace Robertson. Carrie Mae Weems, a WIPI Founding member, recently received the 2013 MacArthur Genius Fellowship Award.
After 33 years in operation, WomenInPhotography.org now boasts a unique, worldwide network of members, comprised of professional photographers, gallery owners, photo educators, curators, artisans, photography students and supporters.
