We Asked Photographers From All Around The World To Showcase Their Best Shots Of Women, And Here Are The Best 50 Entries

10

Let’s embark on a feminine world tour to bring out the contrasts of our contemporary world: expect portraits of women without filters where beauty, strength, resilience, and mystery transpire.

From ethnic tribes to fierce-looking protests for Argentina’s legal abortion laws, each finalist picture tells the moving story of strong, independent and brave women all over the world.

These 50 photographers have shared their unique point of view to have their shot at the crucial question ‘What is a woman?’ and have been selected among more than 12,250 submissions in the #Women2019 Photo Contest by AGORA images, a free-to-use photography app that has been rewarding the world’s biggest prizes in global photo contests since 2017.

Who will be the #Woman2019 hero and win the prize of $1000? It’s now time for the AGORA community to vote for their favorite photo in the app, and help the guest judges decide which #Woman2019 point of view strikes them the most.
