Olympus UK is proud to be sponsoring the first SheClicks exhibition at London’s After Nyne gallery!
SheClicks is a free-to-join community for female photographers with a friendly, informative vibe. Its purpose is to encourage and support female photographers of all levels of experience, from complete novices using a phone to experienced pros handling top-end kit.
The exhibition comprises 50 images selected from over 2000 submitted by members of the community. As the brief was open, there is a wide spread of subjects and techniques, with the aim of showcasing the breadth, depth and creativity of women’s photography.

The task of selecting the 50 images fell to ten judges, all highly respected women in the UK photographic industry. The selected images were created by professional, semi-professional and amateur photographers using a wide range of cameras from any manufacturer.
“I’m very grateful to the my fellow judges for their help and support. The quality of the photography submitted was just amazing and we could easily have put together a much larger exhibition. It was tough to have to exclude so many great images, but breaking the news to the 50 photographers whose images are in the exhibition was the highlight of my time with SheClicks so far. My thanks also go to Olympus UK for enabling this exhibition to take place, and to Photocrowd for facilitating the submission and selection process.”

“I was looking for creative and memorable images, although technical aspect was important too. A clear concept, good composition, attention to light and details is what resonates with me, so I paid particular attention to these. With so many submitted images, the task wasn’t easy but on the other hand it was a sheer pleasure as the standard was so high.”
— Professional photographer and writer Beata Moore
