What I See Travel Competition Winners

What I See Travel Competition Winners

If there’s a big fat hole in your life where our campaign posts used to be… never fear. Because today we’re introducing you to our Travel Competition winners - and sharing their entries!

For those of you who don’t know, we ran a competition for students and graduates, asking them to send in some of the stories of women they met on their travels. The entries could be in the form of video, or words and photos – and there was £1000 prize money up for grabs.

The deadline was 30th September, and we really enjoyed watching and reading all the submissions. It was a tough call, but now we present to your our winner and two runners up…

First prize – Ewan Michael Riley

Ewan found four women with contrasting views and life experiences, and let them discuss issues that mattered to them amongst themselves.

Of making a film about woman as a man, Ewan said: “The result hopefully comes across not as a male perspective on women, but rather a film that allows women to speak for themselves and express their own identities, which is after all the aim of the What I See Project” – spot on Ewan!

We were absolutely tickled pink when Ewan came to the launch – you can read what he thought of the soirée here.

So many congratulations to Ewan – it was great for Edwina, the project’s founder, to be able to hand him his prize face-to-face!

Runner up – Andrea Fonsmorti


Andrea sent in two videos – one of Ukrainian Kateryna, and another of Steffi, from Germany. The visual quality was very high and we enjoyed his contextual shots. Well done Andrea!

Runner up – Susan Macaulay


Susan also sent in two contributions. She took an original approach to the task - asking women from around the globe to contribute ‘selfies’ and three words to describe themselves, as well as submitting a warm, sensitive and honest video of herself and her mother.

Very well done to all those who contributed, and to our winning entries!
