For the third year in a row, Leica U.S. is running The Leica Women Foto Project. This contest aims to encourage diversity and inclusion in visual storytelling and is designed to demonstrate the significance and influence of a woman’s point of view. The Leica Foto Project works with US based photographic agency VII to select the winners. 

The Leica Women Foto Project will grant three female photographers $10,000, a Leica SL2-S Camera and a Leica Vario Elmarit-SL 24-70mm lens. The project hopes to challenge how we see, how we think and we express our visual narrative.
