In Nepal, as globally, the Covid-19 pandemic has established a serious public health threat and has affected all domains of society its health, economy, and education- in deeply gendered ways. In this unsettling moment of national upheaval, it is more important than ever to produce and distribute imagery that reflects the diverse realities of gender. We encourage photographers to contribute to expanding the imagery associated with the concept of gender in Nepal by exploring, for example:

  • How the landscape of work- professional, domestic, care or otherwise- is gendered in Nepal?
  • How gender intersects with health and wellbeing in Nepal?
  • How politics and commercial industries exploit gender roles and how they are challenged in Nepal?
  • How gender intersects with other aspects of identities and vulnerabilities in Nepal?We are particularly interested, but not exclusively, in works that contemplate these topics in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.
