Judging an All Female Photographers Competition in Bosnia and Herzegovina

I am so honored and excited to be the judge of an incredible photo competition taking place amongst female music photographers in Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a female photographer who started off when I was quiet young, I was always so excited when I would see another female photographer out there in such a predominately male driven environment. Creating an environment that is also supportive for women and girls is so important to me. One of the national TV stations in Bosnia and Herzegovina did an article about my participation in the competition, which you can see below.
