She is More: A global celebration of the value of women through art


The value of a woman, like art, is beyond what the eye can see. A woman is one of the most dynamic individuals who often simultaneously assumes the role of caretaker, businesswoman, problem-solver, financier, peacemaker, teacher and community-builder. This competition will celebrate the spirit of everyday women by capturing their courage, strength, passion, empathy and overall value to the world we live in through art.
