The Newswomen’s Club of New York is currently accepting submissions for its 2019 Spring Photography Show and Auction. 

This year’s event will be held on Wednesday, May 15, at the Ukrainian Institute of America. This arts and cultural institute occupies a beautiful mansion opposite Central Park and provides the perfect setting for the Newswomen’s Club’s showcase of photography, curated by our Photo Auction Committee. It is an invitation-only cocktail reception, show, and silent auction that attracts on average 300 guests each year.

Donated images are for one-time use only. Photographers retain their copyrights, credits are given on the images, and credits and bios are printed in the program. The Newswomen’s Club prints and mats all photographs at no cost to contributors.

The Newswomen’s Club, which is celebrating its 97th year of serving our industry, fulfills part of its mission by promoting the work of great news photographers and photojournalists. Proceeds of the auction help to cover costs of programs the Club runs for journalists throughout the year.
