Open the call for 4th Award of Photography Ruth Matilda Anderson

The USC rewards the visibilization of women labour and the deconstruction of gender stereotypes


The USC organizes the 4th Award of Photography Ruth Matilda Anderson, which commemorates the figure of the North American photographer, who made several trips to Galicia giving testimony through her images of the every day activities of the 20’s. With this prize the USC seeks to promote equality inside and outside the university community, via two mechanisms:

  1. To raise awareness on the labor developed by women in the society and historically unseen.
  2. To deconstruct as much as possible the gender stereotypes about women and men works, and encourage the selection of careers in a more free, vocational way.

Aimed to do that, the award directed to the university community and former students only accepts works whose theme portraits women from different perspectives (visibillization of work, women and science, breaking gender stereotypes…), rewarding creativity, innovation and image impact. Three prizes will be given, financed by Santiago de Compostela city council, with an economic amount of 1.000€, 800 € and 500 €.

The photografies must be presented in digital format, with a minimal resolution of 300 ppp and horizontal orientation (A3 or A4). Works can be submitted until the 10th of September of 2019.
