Announcing the Inaugural Leica Women Summit: A Free Event For Aspiring & Professional Photographers


As an extension of the brand’s annual Leica Women Foto Project, Leica is announcing an inaugural virtual summit on April 22, 24 and 25 to bring together trailblazing visionaries and unlock new opportunities for photographers. Designed to further support the professional development of women in photography, the Leica Women Summit is a tuition-free virtual opportunity to learn from industry leaders in a series of public lectures, discussions, and conversations to help female photographers prioritize and monetize their passion.

This first-of-its-kind summit for the brand is completely complimentary and open to the public. In alignment with its long-standing commitment to diversity and inclusion within the field, Leica is introducing a new opportunity for a select number of applicants from the 2019 and 2020 Leica Women Foto Project Award to participate in 2, 20-minute portfolio reviews with industry leaders, including photo editors from National Geographic, The New York Times, and more.

The Leica Women Summit curates programs in collaboration with Photoville’s Laura Roumanos to ensure a compelling lineup with industry leaders, including Janette Beckman, Julie Grahame and Polly Irungu. Some of the sessions include:
