The five participants of Sony’s Alpha Female Creator-in-Residence Program have been chosen.
Sony Electronics Inc. recently announced the winners of its Alpha Female Creator-in-Residence Program Contest, which is part of its “Be Alpha” campaign flagship initiatives. Out of over 6,000 entrants, the five winners were chosen to receive funding, mentorship, Sony digital imaging products, and other perks.
The Alpha Female initiative is Sony’s answer to the imaging industry’s well-known gender gap challenges, with the goal of providing exclusive opportunities for women photographers to get ahead in their careers. To empower these talented women, Sony will award them with a six-month grant of $25,000 in funds, $5,000 in Sony digital imaging product allowance, a one-on-one mentorship with a high-profile Sony Artisan of Imagery, and many other prizes.
