More than 600 women photographers from 82 countries have submitted their entries to the International Women Photographers Award (IWPA).

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 final list of the selected photographers include names like Loulou Daki – Swedish, Annalisa Natali Murri – Italian, Estelle Lagarde – French, Tahmineh Monzavi – Iranian, Elahe Abdolahaba – Iranian, Alice Mann - South African, Shu-Chen Chen – Taiwanese and Marylise Vigneau – French among others.
One of the finalists Constanza Portnoy, a participant from Argentina will be displaying her series titled 'Force of Life' in the upcoming exhibition. Her powerful and deeply moving series will portray the lives of people with disabilities.
On speaking about her series she says, "I feel excited, honoured and very happy, especially because in Argentina it is very difficult to raise awareness about this issue."
It is unfortunate that the rights of people with disabilities are very vulnerable over there."
