Congratulations WIPNYC on its first year anniversary!
Co founders and curators, photographers Cara Phillips and Amy Elkins had worked so hard and so selfishly to promote this organization and their efforts are paying off!

Tonight WIPNYC will have their first recipient awards and reception tonight. See more information below. I will be there and on a personal level... Cara and Amy- I am so proud of you both .It is a joy to be able to collect your photography work and have you as friends. Keep up the great work and causes.

WIPNYC would like to invite you to celebrate its one-year anniversary and its first ever WIP-Lightside Individual Project Grant Recipient at the National Arts Club Grand Gallery on June 10th, 2009.

Women in Photography launched in June of 2008 as an outlet for women photographers to exhibit work outside of the traditional commercial art world. Showcasing emerging photographers in addition to mid-career and established artists, it is designed as a resource for photographers, editors, curators, gallery owners, and the general public to discover and enjoy the work of women artists. As an internet-based project, the site reaches a global audience. Exhibitions are co-curated by Amy Elkins and Cara Philips.
Women in Photography is a Humble Arts Foundation project.
