Microsoft and Thomson Reuters Foundation is inviting you to take part in this year’s annual Trust Women Photo Award, which advances women’s rights, in return for some amazing career opportunities.

Photographers and photojournalists are invited to submit an image capturing the lives and stories of remarkable women around the world, who are achieving incredible things in their communities.

One selected photo will be showcased at the Trust Women Conference on November 9-10, 2015 in London. It is the annual international event organised by the Thomson Reuters Foundation and dedicated to the advancement of women’s rights and to the fight against human trafficking.

They will also receive a copy of the 2014 edition of the ‘Reuters Our World Now’ photobook.

The voting period is the time to engage your friends, family and supporters to vote for your work! One photographer with the highest number of votes will automatically be included as the 10th finalist.
