#ThroughHerLens Winner Announcement
On March 8th, we set out a call for 360 photos and videos of women and by women to celebrate International Women’s Day. In merely 18 days, over 90 creators shared with us 319 photos and 140 videos that told the story of women from all walks of life, all around the world.
Out of these 94 creators, an unprecedented number of 39% involved female creators. Simply wow. The stories of how these women became 360/VR creators are all one of a kind as well. There’s Pam who was introduced to us by good friend friend Ron; Bev, Jackie and Nanda who were handed a 360 camera by their husband Boleslaw, David and Ajeossi; there’s Sascha, BiscuitDad, and Rully who let their wife take over their accounts. We also had couples like 2feelalive & Amanjeet who documented the joy of traveling with your loved one, Toshio, Zimha360, and Andri who shared with us the joy of children.
We also cannot forget creators like Anastasia, Aaron, REALVISION360 and VRLIFECANADA who brought our attention to the social problems that still exist today, and #ChrisOwenHalper, MoDaFo360 & Hashtagluego who gave us hope through their captures of Women’s Marches from all over the world.
We also enjoyed seeing work by female filmmakers like Michael, Fifer and Christina, and experiencing everyday life captured by VR enthusiasts like Ciera, Flora and Rocky. Thank you for showing us the world through your lens.
Thank you to all the creators who supported this contest and before we announce the winners, we just want to say that if you didn’t win this time, it only means you have more chances to win in the future!
