Event History

Female in Focus is a photography award from 1854 Media. Having launched in 2019, the award aims to highlight and give a platform to the exceptional work of women photographers around the world. This year, the award is set to be bigger and better than ever before. Female in Focus was conceived to address gender inequality in the photography industry. 80% of photography graduates are women — yet women make up only 15% of professional photographers. These women photographers are earning, on average, 40% less than their male counterparts. Our mission is to open up the photographic landscape to a broad and representative range of talent, empowering woman-identifying and non-binary people the world over to own their own stories. We know we have to start at home. We’re proud to say that 54% of the photographers we commission through Studio 1854 are women. Gender balance in our awards programme is improving, but not yet equal: currently, 41% of our winners are women. We are determined to see this number rise.
