- International Museum of Women CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS- Your Voices: On Motherhood

Submissions are accepted online through October 31, 2011 with a prize of US$1000 to the Community Choice Award Winner!

Artists, filmmakers, photographers, musicians, writers: IMOW wants to showcase your work in the new online exhibition Your Voices: On Motherhood. Contributions can come in any medium that is currently supported on (see below for details) and work must address a topic related to motherhood. 

IMOW wants to showcase the experiences, ideas, joys and challenges of a new global generation on this important issue. What are your fears and hopes as you think about whether to become a mother? How is being a ‘good' mother defined in your country or culture? How is mothering now different to your mother or grandmother's generation?

Potential topics may include but are not limited to:

  • Motherhood and Identity
  • Pregnancy and Childbirth - including maternal health
  • Work/life Choices
  • Motherhood Myths and Realities
  • Teenage Motherhood
  • Fathers
  • Grandmothers


Explore these questions and topics, or come up with your own. We encourage you to submit original art, creative writing, personal stories, journalism, music, audio, video, photography or animation for consideration, and take part in this extraordinary conversation!
