The International Museum of Women is now accepting submissions of any media type for our new online exhibition,
Your Voices: On Motherhood
Submissions are accepted online through October 31, 2011 with a prize of US$1000 to the Community Choice Award Winner!
Artists, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, writers: IMOW wants to showcase your work in the new online exhibition Your Voices: On Motherhood. Contributions can come in any medium that is currently supported on IMOW.org (see below for details) and work must address a topic related to motherhood.
IMOW wants to showcase the experiences, ideas, joys and challenges of a new global generation on this important issue. What are your fears and hopes as you think about whether to become a mother? How is being a ‘good’ mother defined in your country or culture? How is mothering now different to your mother or grandmother’s generation?
Potential topics may include but are not limited to:
- Motherhood and Identity
- Pregnancy and Childbirth – including maternal health
- Work/life Choices
- Motherhood Myths and Realities
- Teenage Motherhood
Explore these questions and topics, or come up with your own. We encourage you to submit original art, creative writing, personal stories, journalism, music, audio, video, photography or animation for consideration, and take part in this extraordinary conversation!
Your Voices: On Motherhood is an entirely global community driven showcase that will launch in November 2011. The exhibition will represent the diverse voices, experiences, struggles and successes of women worldwide as they relate to motherhood. We encourage submissions from all global regions.
Submitting your work provides the opportunity to showcase your creativity for a global audience of over 50,000 monthly visitors from 200 countries. Submitted work will be reviewed by a jury, and selected submissions will be curated for inclusion in the Your Voices: On Motherhood exhibition. Additionally, by submitting, your work will automatically be considered for inclusion in IMOW’s exciting new flagship exhibition on global motherhood scheduled to launch in 2012. We invite you to share your thoughts and creativity!
COMMUNITY CHOICE AWARD
All published submissions will be eligible for the Community Choice Award, a US$1,000 prize, with a $500 cash award going to the individual contributor and a $500 donation going to a women’s nonprofit of the winner’s choice. More information about the community choice award guidelines and voting process will be provided at the launch of the Your Voices on Motherhood exhibition in November.
