International Women's Day Teams Up with EyeEm as Exclusive Image Partner for 2019

By Jenna Black - 3 min read

We are partnering with International Women's Day to bring you a new EyeEm photograph collection and photo Mission to celebrate stories of women around the world in 2019.

Last year we introduced #NotYourCliche - a movement to shake up visual representation for real - and through it we’ve showcased images of strength, masculinity, real families, authentic beauty, women and more.

Today we’re super excited and honored to continue that movement with International Women’s Day as the exclusive image partner for 2019. Together we will be celebrating women through a series of photography related initiatives.

“The way women and girls are represented through any form of media has never been more crucial.”

The International Women’s Day Image Collection

We’ve partnered on an International Women’s Day image collection available for licensing, and 20% of the licensing revenue will be donated to the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts (WAGGGS), which is an International Women’s Day charity of choice.

The way women and girls are represented through any form of media has never been more crucial. This collection of images features females exactly as they are: strong, powerful, diverse and unique.

“Celebrating diverse imagery of women challenges stereotypes, broadens perceptions and reflects the vibrant and varied communities in which we live and work worldwide,” said Glenda Slingsby, Partnerships Director for International Women’s Day. “Photographers and industry can certainly play a critical role in helping forge a more gender-balanced world.”

The International Women’s Day 2019 #BalanceforBetter campaign theme images were shot by EyeEm photographers and can be seen as part of this extensive collection. A big thank you to Avel Shah, Neo Baepi and Jorge Oviedo for their work on the campaign images.
