Suffrage Now: A 19th Amendment Centennial Exhibition

The Elisabet Ney Museum

Entry Deadline: Jul. 20

304 E 44th St
Austin, TX 78751

General Info:
On August 18th 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment was ratified, giving women in the US the right to vote. Since then it has become such an assumption of the body politic that it is all but unimaginable to conceive of its absence. But it was a long and arduous campaign to reach this milestone, and it wasn’t, in fact, until August 6th 1965, with the passage of the Voting Rights Act of 1965, that all American-born women were guaranteed to share in this privilege.

In SUFFRAGE NOW, the Elisabet Ney Museum asks contemporary American women photographers to  hare photos that comment on the Centennial of the Ratification of the 19th Amendment. Photos can be old or new, but must be taken by the submitting photographer. Given the current national health crisis, the exhibition will be online only.

The exhibition will open online on August 6 2020, and remain accessible at least through Inauguration Day, January 20, 2021.

The call for entries to SUFFRAGE NOW is opento all women and women identifying photographers living,based, and/or working in the US. Photographs will be selected on the basis of work entered. Photos may have been taken at any point in a photographer’s lifetime, and may also have been shown elsewhere, as long as the photographer owns rights for reproduction or can get permission from whomever owns those rights. Final invitation to participate in SUFFRAGE NOW is at the sole discretion of the jurors and curators.
