Equality in Wildlife Photography Competitions - An interview with Big Picture's Suzi Eszterhas and Rhonda Rubinstein

Impact: The Conservation Photography Podcast

May 25 2021 • 1 hr 9 mins

#074: Today we're talking with Suzi Eszterhas, who is jury chair of BigPicture, and Rhonda Rubinstein, whois the Creative Director at California Academy of Sciences, the entity that hosts the competition. And both Suzi and Rhonda are co-founders of BigPicture.

We talk about why BigPicture puts so much emphasis on increasing the representation of women inside of this wildlife photography competition, why it matters, and what strategies are they employing in order to encourage women to enter.

It's a big sticky topic. You may agree with some things, you may disagree with some things, but it is something that we need to have a conversation about. So I invite you to come along on this conversation, and it might just open up new ideas about the entire concept of wildlife photography competitions as a whole.
