girl power (ɡɜːl ˈpaʊə)
– “power exercised by girls; spec. a self-reliant attitude among girls and young women manifested in ambition, assertiveness, and individualism.”
In case you missed it (where have you been?!) we recently launched Vol III of EyeEm Magazine. It’s called By Women and focuses on the work of female photographers. Our aim was to emphasize how few spaces there are for women to showcase their work in a signature way – and do something about it! We’re incredibly proud of it and hope you love it as much as we do.
To celebrate the launch, we are running this new Mission with VICE’sBroadly, a new channel dedicated to all things real girls. With some incredible prizes up for grabs!
Your Mission: What does Girl Power mean to you – and what significance does it have in the world today? To celebrate the launch of By Women, we’re asking you to grab your camera and answer this very question. Redefine femininity, recapture womanhood and show us the independent, empowered females in your life to enter!
Your Reward: A selection of photographers will have their work featured on one of three Meurals at The Girls’ Lounge at Cannes Lions this month! We’ll also be offering copies of EyeEm Magazine Vol III to the 10 runners-up. A handful of our favorite shots will also star in an EyeEm image collection.
Deadline: June 17 2016
