We all know this! ‘Women Make It Happen’.  They are change makers, leaders, educators, and natural-born entrepreneurs. They lead by example and inspire entire generations. This year, the Trust Women Photo Award celebrates inspirational women who take the lead to further their families, communities and society at large.

Photographers and photojournalists are invited to submit images 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.
