A little more than a month after International Women’s Day, dotART cultural association, promoter of Italian festival Trieste Photo Days, launches an open call for the new project WOW: Worlds of Women through its platform Exhibit Around.

We are looking for photographers interested in submitting single photos and/or projects/portfolios focused on women, the female universe and the thousands of galaxies that populate it.

The ambition is to create a project with a heterogeneous style that focuses on women, the female figure, motherhood, gender disparities, social struggles, nonconforming femininity, work, culture, art and all photographic works capable of launching an original look at the life of women around the world.

Each author can address the theme through the photographic genre that he feels closest to: portrait, street photography, social reportage, documentary photography, fashion photography, fine-art.

The best photos and portfolios will flow into the new original Exhibit Around project, WOW: Worlds of Women, which will consist of:


A prestigious photographic volume that will contain selected works by the participants and special guest Susan Meiselas, and which will be presented during the opening weekend of Trieste Photo Days (end of October 2022)


A huge international group exhibition with a wide selection of the best photos of the project, which will take place in the dual context of Trieste Photo Days (the very central Sala Veruda, in the heart of the city) and Photo Days Tour, in a museum nearby

WOW: Worlds of Women follows the success of Exhibit Around’s acclaimed tribute projects, in which hundreds of photographers from five continents participate every year. After the tributes to Martin Parr (Short Street Stories, 2019), Alex Webb (Chromantic, 2020) and street photography (Tales of the Unwritten, 2021), 2022 will be a year dedicated to women!
