Our free photography contest recommendation of the day!
The Muhammad Ali Center is honored to announce the topic of its seventh annual “Shining a Light” International Photography Contest and subsequent exhibition, titled Women’s Fight for the Right.
As 2020 is the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the United States’ 19th constitutional amendment and the 55th anniversary of the Voting Rights Act, the Muhammad Ali Center is commemorating this occasion with Women’s Fight for the Right, in hopes that it will honor the women around the world who have fought and continue to fight for the right to vote without bias, without discrimination, without violence, and without fear.
The contest host will produce a documentary-style exhibition, which will be exhibited at the Muhammad Ali Center in Louisville, Kentucky beginning March 8, 2020.
"Shining a Light: Women’s Fight for the Right"
The 19th Amendment states, “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” To commemorate this centennial anniversary, Women’s Fight for the Right will focus on women’s suffrage on a global scale, explore the narrative of suffrage, and reflect on women who have fought, throughout history and all over the world, for political representation and the right to participate in politics.
The Muhammad Ali Center is asking for photographs, new or old, so that we might be able to tell the most holistic story, spanning history to today, with moments from as many nations as possible.
A monetary prize will be awarded to the contestants by the Muhammad Ali Center in recognition of placing first, second, or third.
